Banned in more than 20 countries, this form of talaq, still practised in India, finds no mention in the Quran. Last year, the Allahabad High court called the practice 'unconstitutional'. Seventy years after independence, Muslim women in our country can still be banished out of their own homes without warning. Is the debate about religious freedom or just basic human rights promised to every citizen of the country in our constitution? On We The People, we ask: is it time the world's largest democracy caught up with its neighbours and banned triple talaq? Will the Supreme Court ruling finally deliver the judgement that women like Shayara Bano and Gulshan Parveen have been waiting for?
