The Supreme Court verdict Tuesday quashed the practice of instant triple talaq, and called it unconstitutional and in violation of Article 14 of the Indian Constitution, which provides for equality before the law. The five-member bench was divided 3-2 on the matter, with the majority verdict striking the practice down. Br. Nahas, President SIO said that, the expectations that a Supreme Court verdict will clear the misconceptions surrounding the whole issue have largely been unaddressed.
