With Supreme Court declaring triple talaq as unconstitutional, the VHP on Tuesday said the government should enact a law against the practice and also bring a legislation to ban more than two children.
The apex court held that the triple talaq was against the basic tenets of Quran.
"In view of the different opinions recorded by a majority of 3:2, the practice of 'talaq-e-biddat' - triple talaq -- is set aside," a five-judge constitution bench said in a 395-page order.
While Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice S Abdul Nazeer were in favour of putting on hold for six months the practice of triple talaq and asking the government to come out with a law in this regard, Justices Kurian Joseph, R F Nariman and U U Lalit held it as violative of the Constitution.
The majority verdict said any practice, including triple talaq, which is against the tenets of Quran is unacceptable.
