According to a report in the Times of India, over 90 percent of women responding to questions for a study “unequivocally voiced their dissent against the discriminatory practice of triple talaq.”

The report also said that oral talaq delivered through new media platforms like Skype, text messages, email and Whatsapp had become a cause of “worry for the community.”
