The ordinance or an Executive order criminalising Triple Talaq was passed by the Union Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 19.

Triple Talaq, or verbal divorce, is often practised by a section in the Muslim community in India to instantly divorce their wives by uttering the word 'Talaq' three times.
