Veteran legendary actress Shabana Azmi has welcomed the Supreme Court’s ruling on ‘Triple Talaq’, saying that the judgement is a victory for brave Muslim women in India. 

“I welcome the Supreme Court judgement on instant Triple Talaq. It’s surely a victory for brave Muslim women, who have waged a battle against it for years,” she tweeted on Tuesday.

In 1998, the United Nations Population Fund appointed her as its Goodwill Ambassador for India.

The APEX COURT, by a 3:2 majority judgement, held the TT being practiced by Muslim community as ‘unconstitutional’, ‘arbitrary’ and ‘not part of Islam’.

Shabana is also a social activist, fighting the support for child survival and fighting AIDS and injustice along with the cause.
