On All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) had this to say about triple talaq and reasons for its justification: “at least the woman has a proof in the form of WhatsApp message or an SMS that she has been divorced. This proof will help her in charting out a new course in life. But in other religions, women are just being abandoned by their husbands. For such women, there is no help forthcoming.” It should also be noted that the triple talaq is banned in 21 countries with majority muslim population including Pakistan. Also, as things stand over 50,000 men and women have signed a petition to ban the triple talaq practice, per news reports.
