The BJP as well as the Congress welcomed the supreme court judgment that bars instant triple talaq for a period of six months and also seeks a legislation on it.
 
BJP chief Amit Shah said that he welcomes this on behalf of the party and added “it’s not about anyone's win or loss”.
 
After persistent, unequivocal & firm stand taken by prime minister Narendra Modi, the evil practice of triple talaq is held unconstitutional by the supreme court, said the Bharatiya Janata Party.
 
The Congress said it is a progressive, secular judgement for equal rights of Muslim women in India.
 
Activists too welcomed the 3-2 apex court verdict that termed instant triple talaq retrograde and said the practice is against Article 14 of the Constitution, which guarantees the right to equality.
 
“We welcome the observations and verdict of the supreme court. Triple talaq is patriarchal in nature and the practice has caused great injustice to Muslim women,” said Sandeep Chachra, executive director, ActionAid India.
