Congress leader and senior advocate Kapil Sibal, who had fought the triple talaq case for the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), today welcomed the Supreme Court verdict setting aside the practice, terming it as “dying” and “sinful”.

Sibal, who had argued before a five-judge constitution bench that triple talaq was an integral practice in Islam, told PTI that this was a “dying” and “sinful” practice and even the AIMPLB had agreed to suggest Qazis to give women the liberty to say ‘no’ to ‘talaq-e-biddat’ at the time of execution of the Nikahnama (marriage contract).

“We welcome the judgement in its entirety on the issue of practice of instantaneous divorce through triple talaq,” he said.

“It is a dying practice. This has been accepted by all of us as sinful and must be deprecated. AIMPLB has proposed that in the Nikahnama, a choice would be given to the woman that she will not accept this practice of divorce through triple talaq,” Sibal said.

Referring to the common points in the dissenting judgements, the astute lawyer said all the judges at the bench have agreed that personal law cannot be challenged on the grounds of infringment of fundamental rights.
