In Rajya Sabha, MPs demand triple talaq bill sent to Select Committee

Amit Shah

This Bill, if acts out, will make triple talaq a criminal offense which proposes a three-year imprison for a Muslim man who divorces his spouse in any form of spoken, written or by electronic means such as email, SMS, and WhatsApp.

"These days a number of reforms are being brought in".

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar said that the government was in talks with Congress party for smooth passage of the legislation, which was passed by Lok Sabha last week.

It should be noted that previously, these "accidental" leaks from Coolshop turned out to be surprisingly accurate. Our minds work in a way that make the difference between "a few months" and "half a year" seem astronomical.

Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the Bill upholds the right of Muslim women. The party, however, opposes the provision in the bill criminalising the pronouncement of instantaneous triple talaq.

According to Business Standard, the Centre described the voting as "historic" and even said that there is no doubt that the Bill will be passed in Rajya Sabha as well.

The Centre will seek to pass legislations on the insolvency and bankruptcy code as well as criminalisation of the instant triple talaq practice in the upper house, where it needs the support of some Opposition parties for the goal. "Let it go for reconsideration to Select Committee", says NCP leader Majeed Memon.

Meanwhile, the opposition is demanding that the bill be first tabled to the select committee. "They are saying don't send bills to the Standing Committee for closer scrutiny".

This bill gives power to the victim to approach a magistrate seeking "subsistence allowance" for herself and minor children in the case of instant triple talaq or talaq-e- biddat. The women's group has also sought that the offence of giving triple talaq be made a non-cognisable and bailable crime.
