Mr Shah also thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP-led central government for presenting the viewpoint of the Muslim women, who contested the issue, "in a just manner" before the Supreme Court.
Viewing it as a "resolute step towards New India", he stressed that the Supreme Court's majority verdict was not a defeat or win for anyone. It was a "victory of rights to equality and fundamental Constitutional rights", Mr Shah told reporters.
"We welcome the verdict. The Supreme Court has given a historic decision. This verdict has given the right to crores of women to live with equality and dignity."
"It is a beginning of a new epoch of self-respect and equality for Muslim women. The party (BJP) welcomes the rights and respect the women have received and sees it as a resolute step towards a New India," he said.
The Supreme Court by a majority verdict today set aside the practice of divorce through triple talaq among Muslims, saying the practice was void, illegal and unconstitutional.
The Supreme Court held that the triple talaq was against the basic tenets of Quran.
