In August 2017, the Supreme Court passed an apparently striking judgment in the Shayara Bano v Union of India on the act of moment triple talaq, expressing that it was "obviously subjective" and "against the essential fundamentals of Islam". The court split 3:2 – the minority conclusion, including past Chief Justice J.S Khehar, had requested that the Center to legislate on the matter of talaq-e-biddat, and the majority opinion stated that such practice is unlawful and illegal. The Center, in an offer to remain consistent with the law, presented the triple talaq charge and passed it in the Lok Sabha.
