Giant step for women, says Maneka Gandhi
Union Minister Maneka Gandhi on Supreme Court's landmark judgement triple talaq said,"SC has asked govt to make a law and we will look into it."
''Small step from Supreme Court, a giant step for women, It is a very, very important judgment. This makes women equal, as they are entitled to be under the Constitution,'' Maneka said.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday struck down triple talaq terming it "unconstitutional". The constitutional bench, headed by the Chief Justice JS Khehar, delivered a spilt verdict (3:2) invalidating the practice as part of the Muslim Personal Law.
The majority judgment came from three judges - Justice Rohinton Nariman, Justice Kurien Joseph and Justice UU Lalit. CJI JS Khehar and Justice S Abdul Nazeer write minority judgment.
