Prime Minister Narendra Modi on tweet: “An archaic and medieval practice has finally been confined to the dustbin of history! Parliament abolishes Triple Talaq and corrects a historical wrong done to Muslim women. This is a victory of gender justice and will further equality in society. India rejoices today!"

This Bill will protect the rights of married Muslim women and prohibit divorce by pronouncing talaq by their husbands and to provide for matters connected there with or incidental thereto.

The Supreme Court had declared the practice of instant triple talaq unconstitutional and a divorce pronounced by uttering talaq three times in one sitting void and illegal.
