A Human Rights Achievement for Muslim Women in India

A Human Rights Achievement for Muslim Women in India

By: Lauren Kissel.

The Supreme Court of India recently outlawed the longstanding practice of allowing Muslim men to instantly divorce their wives through “triple talaq,” or uttering the word “talaq,” meaning “divorce,” three times in a row. The Court ruled this practice unconstitutional and against the tenents of the Muslim faith. With this ruling, India joins many other counties that have outlawed this Muslim practice and in turn strengthens the rights of Muslim women.
