| Thursday | 16th May, 2019
A 28-year old man and his parents were arrested by the Thane police on Thursday after he allegedly gave divorce to his wife by sending a 'triple talaq' message on her mobile phone.
She further alleged that she on March 12 this year, she received a ‘triple talaq’ message on WhatsApp from her husband.
On 28 December 2017, the Lok Sabha had passed The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017.
Back in August 2017, the Supreme Court had delivered its verdict and termed the practice of triple talaq among Muslims was “void”, “illegal” and “unconstitutional”.
The bill made instant triple talaq (talaq-e-biddah) in any form spoken, in writing or by electronic means such as email, SMS and WhatsApp illegal and void, with up to three years of jail term and fine.
