After LS, Triple Talaq Bill to be tabled in RS next week

Qasmi, who chaired the programme, said the triple talaq bill passed by Lok Sabha goes against the right to practice religion contained in Article 25 of the Constitution. The women activists hailed the government's move to ban the practice triple talaq by terming it as a "start". With the Supreme Court making triple talaq illegal, there was actually no need to bring the bill, criminalize something that can not be done and try to take credit for improving the lot of the Indian Muslim women.

His tweet read, "For a bloody film of 2 hours consultation is done with organisations but when it comes to empowerment and justice for Muslim Women no consultation but by brute majority badly drafted, flawed and bill which violates Fundamental rights is bulldozed". "What the Bill is required is to make a law, wherein 20 lakh women, who are abandoned by married people, who do not belong to Muslim community, which also includes our bhabhi in Gujarat, should be given justice".

Since the BJP's rise from the sidelines of politics to the mainstream can be traced to that event in the mid-1980s, the Congress will have to tread carefully in deciding on its stance on the bill which has followed the Supreme Court's recent declaration of triple talaq as unconstitutional in a case involving the litigant, Shayara Bano. In the current social situation wherein lack of ethics and truthfulness is widely felt, an innocent man can be locked in jail for a mere allegation of triple talaq, until proven otherwise.

The bill was passed with most of the leading parties in the Opposition, including the Congress party, voting in favour of the bill, but with caveats.

The president of the All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board Shaista Amber welcomed the passage of the bill by the Lok Sabha.

Towards the end of the week temperatures moderate as moisture levels increase with some rain showers late Thursday or Friday . Patchy blowing snow before 1 p.m. "It depends on how quick the transition is", from drizzle to snow, Temeyer said.


"Never was punishment a part of the demand nor was triple talaq sought to be made a crime".

Devi Ahilya Vishwa Vidyalaya's former managing board member Jamila Jali said that this law will keep a check on the women victimization and it can not be treated as something against the Shariya laws. Hindu Marriage Act has stronger provisions: "for 2nd marriage jail term is up to 7 years under IPC Section 494".

Since 1984, Muslim women have been raising issues relating to triple talaq and drawing the attention of lawmakers to various aspects of the Quran and what it provides for.

In this context, he took a dig at Sait for his "regressive" stand on triple Talaq. We will not allow any modification in the Shariat Law because it is clearly a ploy by the government to fill the prisons with Muslims on the basis of this new bill. If the BJP was really eager to see the Indian Muslim women develop, as the Union Law Minister so grandly claimed, his government should have passed legislation providing special provision of reservation for the Muslim women in job and education.
