New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday hailed as “historic” the Supreme Court ruling on triple talaq and said it grants equality to Muslim women.

“Judgment … is historic. It grants equality to Muslim women and is a powerful measure for women empowerment,” Modi tweeted.

The Supreme Court by a 3:2 majority judgment held triple talaq being practised by the Muslim community as “unconstitutional”, “arbitrary” and “not part of Islam”.
