favour of putting on hold for six months the practice of triple talaq asking the government to come out with a law in this regard While the task before the Union law ministry seems challenging and daunting a portion of the judgment may help the Centre draft a law in this regard The concluding paragraph of page 393 of the 395 page apex court order has statements by Nariman and Lalit which read "…it is clear that this form of talaq is manifestly arbitrary in the sense that the marital tie can be broken capriciously and whimsically by a Muslim man without any attempt at reconciliation so as to save it This form of talaq must therefore be held to be violative of the fundamental right contained under Article 14 of the Constitution of India" "In our opinion therefore the 1937 Act insofar as it seeks to recognise and enforce triple talaq is within the meaning and expression "laws in force" in Article 13(1) and must be struck down as being void to the extent that it recognises and enforces triple talaq Since we have declared Section 2 of the 1937 Act to be void to the extent indicated above on the narrower ground of it being manifestly arbitrary we do not find the need to go into the ground of discrimination in these cases as was argued by the learned attorney general and those supporting him" Section 2 of the Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act 1937 states that

into multiple sports – he played squash and carom apart from badminton – and that his father asked him to choose one He said that though he played with both deaf and hearing badminton players and was sometimes bullied he never got scared though his parents were always worried about him Recruited by Hindustan Petroleum in Mumbai at the tender age of 18 as a sports officer it was a job that took him to various tournaments in India He started his career in the hearing open category in squash tennis and badminton winning medals at the state (Maharashtra) level and nationallevel It was only when he turned 18 in 1989 that he represented India at the World Deaf Games (that later went on to become the IOC’s Deaflympics) in Christchurch New Zealand He swept the men’s singles and doubles gold medals and put India on the top – a position that India would sustain for two decades His debut at the Christchurch World Games opened up the avenue for deaf sports in India in a large way After beating
