Former India cricketer Mohammad Kaif was quite a hit with his acrobatic fielding during his playing days. After his cricket career ended and after he had dabbled with politics, Kaif became quite active on a different platform – social media. After the Supreme Court, in a landmark verdict, banned the practice of instant ‘triple talaq’, Kaif took to Twitter to share his views. “Welcome decision by Supreme Court to declare #TripleTalaq unconstitutional. Will give Muslim women security. Gender justice is much needed,” his tweet read.

Kaif’s opinion evoked mixed responses on social media and the former cricketer was trolled on Twitter.
SC says #TripleTalaq is against Quran so how about saying Vande Mataram that is also against basic Quran of There is no God but Allah

The Supreme Court, by a majority verdict, set aside the practice of triple talaq among Muslims, saying it was against the basic tenets of the Holy Quran and violated Shariat, the Islamic law.
