The Supreme Court ruled that the practice of "triple talaq", whereby Muslim men can divorce their wives by saying the word talaq (divorce) three times, was both unconstitutional and un-Islamic. "The party (BJP) welcomes the rights and respect the women have received and sees it as a resolute step towards a New India", BJP president Amit Shah said on Tuesday.
The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party government backed petitioners in the landmark case, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi often speaking against the practice.
The source, however, admitted that bringing some amendments to the Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act, 1937 was being discussed at some level.
The verdict of the apex court placed India into the enviable group of nations that have banned the practice of instant triple talaq.
"What is required is to work for equal rights for women within each religious community and to get reforms undertaken in this direction".
The practice of instant triple talaq enabled the husband to unilaterally terminate the matrimonial relationship without a cause, he said.

She also believed that the legislation on the issue could open doors for interference in the Muslim Personal Law.
Amongst the majority of three, two of the judges argued that instant triple talaq violated the fundamental right to equality enshrined in Article 14 of the Constitution. "Goa too, has a sizeable population of Muslims and it also a relief for them", BJP State general secretary Sadanand Tanawade told Herald.He said the judgment not only provides justice to Muslim women but also empowers them.
Three members of a five-judge bench headed by India's chief justice J.S. Khehar said the law was unconstitutional. Whole Islamic law or Sharia law should be abolished.
"I think the Supreme Court has stepped in at the right time".
They said if a legislation banning triple talaq completely is placed before Parliament within six months, the stay on the practice would continue till Parliament enacted or rejected the law. But in India, triple talaq has continued with the protection of laws that allow Muslim, Christian and Hindu communities to follow religious law in family matters and disputes.
According to her, the first part of the judgement is in favour and supportive of Muslim Personal Law while in the second part, two judges stated that this practice can not be protected under Article 25. Now it's time for comprehensive uniform civil code.
