Lucknow: The Supreme Court ruling on triple talaq will start a new chapter in empowerment of Muslim women in India, say Bollywood celebrities who hailed the verdict on Tuesday. The apex court, by a 3:2 majority judgment, held triple talaq being practised by the Muslim community as “unconstitutional”, “arbitrary” and “not part of Islam”.

Here’s what some Bollywood celebrities tweeted:

Some decisions are not for libtards, pappus or even Bhakts. The decision of triple talaq is for the win of women empowerment.

Welcome judgement by Supreme Court to declare triple talaq as unconstitutional. This will start a new chapter in empowerment of Muslim women.  A win for democracy! Historic day for women’s rights in our country. Equality, triple talaq, human rights, Supreme Court.  Since Supreme Court has declared triple talaq “unconstitutional”, why does Parliament have to enact a new law to void it.  A verdict that I am proud of India! A verdict which was much needed! Ending triple talaq shall lead towards equality  Good to read that triple talaq has been deemed unconstitutional. A victory for Muslim women and another step towards equality.
