NEW DELHI: The Centre may soon bring a legislation to end the practice of triple talaq, according to news agency ANI.

According to the news agency, a ministerial committee has already been constituted to frame the law and the government proposes to bring this legislation in the forthcoming Winter Session of Parliament.

In a historic decision in August, a five-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court struck down triple talaq, or instant divorce, practice as unconstitutional by a 3:2 majority.

Chief Justice JS Khehar and justice S Abdul Nazeer held triple talaq to be part of fundamental right to religion of Muslims and said it was not unconstitutional.

But, Justices Kurian Joseph, R F Nariman and U U Lalit said triple talaq violated the fundamental right of Muslim women as they are subjected to arbitrary irrevocable divorce through this practice.

CJI Khehar and Justice Nazeer, even while holding triple talaq to be valid, ordered a stay on this practice for six months to enable legislature bring a law banning this practice.

They said if a legislation banning triple talaq completely is placed before Parliament within six months, the stay on the practice would continue till Parliament enacted or rejected the law.
