Mohammad Kaif is a quite an outspoken man on social media. His opinions on variety of issues have evoked mixed emotions in the past. The same was the case when he welcomed Supreme Court’s verdict on triple talaq.

The apex Court on Tuesday said triple talaq - the Muslim practice that allows men to instantly divorce their wives - is unconstitutional.

“Sir app kise khus karne ke liye istarha ke twits karte hai...” wrote an user named AIMIM rebel Ladka.

“kaif babu jis chiz ki jaankari na ho us par tweet mat kiya karo,” wrote Shahid Jamal.

“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,” an user named Saquib Hamza replied.

“women are most secure in islaam....being Muslim you should know it,” wrote xahoor bhat.

However, Kaif’s view was echoed by sportspersons like Heena Sindhu and ex-administrators like Ramachandra Guha.
