The Supreme Court on Monday, 11 March, refused to entertain a petition challenging the Triple Talaq ordinance which was filed by lawyer Reepak Kansal.

Earlier in February, the Centre had passed the ordinance, penalising the practice of instant triple talaq.

A three-judge bench comprising Justice Deepak Gupta, and Sanjiv Khanna, headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi dismissed the petition filed by Kansal against the re-promulgation of the ordinance.

The Triple Talaq bill had lapsed in February during Rajya Sabha’s Budget Session.

After being passed by the Lok Sabha in December amid ruckus from the Opposition even as Congress and AIADMK staged a walkout, the bill lapsed after Rajya Sabha adjourned sine die without passing the bill.

The ordinance makes the practice of triple talaq a non-bailable offence.

The issue was taken up in Parliament last year after the Supreme Court’s five-judge bench observed a three-fifth majority state the practice of triple talaq as unislamic and arbitrary.

President Ram Nath Kovind had signed the ordinance after the Union Cabinet gave its nod in February.
