Govt to push triple talaq Bill in Budget Session

Govt to push triple talaq Bill in Budget Session”

"We are not interfering in Shariat", said law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad in the LS today during the debate on the Triple Talaq Bill.

The confrontation over the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, which criminalizes instant triple talaq, sustained in Rajya Sabha. Even "independent" parties like the INLD have distanced themselves from the BJP, he added. The leader of House Arun Jaitley accuses Congress of trying to sabotage the Triple Talaq Bill.

"Total productivity in Lok Sabha was 91 per cent, more than any other winter session, while 56.29 per cent in the Rajya Sabha".

After attempts to convince other parties to evolve a consensus around the bill failed during the winter session, the BJP, may try and bring the bill around the budget session of parliament which will begin in less than a month.

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.

Congress, the leading opposition party in the Rajya Sabha, has objected to the imprisonment and maintenance clauses of the Bill, and is pushing for it to be sent to the standing committee or a select committee to remove contentious clauses. The upper house has been adjourned multiple times this week over the bill that was briefly discussed in the house.

Congress whip in the Lok Sabha Deepender Singh Hooda alleged that the government was not taking Parliament seriously and was using it only as a "rubber stamp".

Muslim women had petitioned the court, arguing the practice of husbands divorcing them through "triple talaq", including by Skype and WhatsApp, not only violated their rights but left many women destitute.

Azad said the government was responsible for the situation and the House not being able to take the triple talaq bill for sending it to a select committee for further scrutiny. It doesn't believe in consultation and discussion. We want equality and respect for the Muslim women, and the Congress is opposing it.
