Triple talaq Bill in next Parlt session

Triple talaq Bill in next Parlt session

The triple talaq bill, which criminalizes the practice of instant divorce among Muslims, was tabled in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

Amid pandemonium over the triple talaq bill, the Rajya Sabha was adjourned for Friday. He was referring to Section 4 of the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, which states: "Whoever pronounces triple talaq upon his wife shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and a fine".

Asked about a possibility of bringing in an ordinance till the bill cleared, Ananth Kumar parried a direct reply and said: "The dates for the budget session have already been announced".

"The productivity of the Lok Sabha was 91.58% and that of the Rajya Sabha was 56.29%", he added.

Likewise, the objective was to rid the Muslim marriage of an abominable practice, Prasad had said while terming the Bill 'historic.' As for the charge that the BJP was out to exploit the Bill politically, well, if the progressive reform furthers the reformist image the party it can not be grudged the credit. While the government used its majority in the Lok Sabha to introduce and pass the bill on the same day (December 28), a united opposition and even NDA partners such as TDP objected to the penal provision in the proposed legislation and demanded it be sent to a select committee. Even the reference of the Bill to a select committee can only aid the BJP attempt to burnish its reformist credentials.

"In the guise of wanting to better the bill, they [the Opposition] are trying to stall justice for the Muslim women across the country". We want equality and respect for the Muslim women, and the Congress is opposing it. Deputy chairman P J Kurien adjourned the house amid bedlam as the government and the opposition couldn't come to a consensus on the contentious bill.

"On one hand, you are sending the man to jail, but on the other hand there is no clarification about who will provide maintenance for the woman and her child, so there are many loopholes", Congress Lok Sabha member Ranjeet Ranjan told ANI.

Speaking at a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) press conference here, the union minister said, "This winter session was very successful".
