    In a 3:2 majority verdict the court held that the practise was unconstitutional and it violates fundamental rights of a woman as it irrevocably ends marriage without any scope of reconciliation.

    The Chief Justice of India J S Khehar and Justice Abdul Nazeer had refused to strike down the practise of triple talaq. They had said that triple talaq is a fundamental right and hence cannot be struck down. Instead they directed the centre to come up with a law within six months.

    The judges who dissented and struck down triple talaq were Justices Kurian Joseph, R F Nariman and U U Lalit.
