  • Bill to make instant triple talaq punishable offence gets Union Cabinet approval Top developments

He has said that it would have severe consequences on rule of law and social cohesion in the country.

The supreme court asked the government to frame a law which protects Muslim women from such crimes.

Was Miami receiver deflating the ball in TD celebration vs. Patriots?
Brady underthrew an open Brandin Cooks deep, and Howard closed for the interception and a 29-yard return to set up a touchdown. Brady said the Patriots didn't take the loss well, and are eager to get back to winning ways Sunday in Pittsburgh.

The bill comes in the wake of the decision taken up by SC in August this year which declared the practice of divorce by instant triple talaq as illegal and unconstitutional.

"Cabinet has taken historic decisions today which will have a long-term impact in the growth of the country. because Parliament session is on, I can not give details of the Bill", Prasad said. "Earlier, not many knew of the divorce but now many realise that instant triple talaq is no more valid", she said. Judges agreed with Muslim women that "triple talaq", often delivered by their husbands over Skype or WhatsApp, violates their right to equality and leaves them destitute.

He said it was created to shield the helpless victims of triple talaq and to give them dignity and security.

All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen leader and Lok Sabha MP Asaduddin Owaisi however opposed the Bill, shooting off a seven-page letter to Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad expressing his concern that "a constitutional value as important as gender justice is being used to merely further cynical political goals". So, the triple talaq bill, we consider as a direct interference in the religious matters of the largest community. Yes, then we will support it. "So, this kind of Personal Law Board argument for any kind of reform is not accepted", the activist said.

Jadhav had filed an appeal with Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa to seek clemency, which is still pending. Keeping that in mind, Pakistan recently made a decision to allow Jadhav's wife and mother to visit him on December 25.

The bill is expected to be introduced during the Winter Session of Parliament that commenced on Friday.

"Through the letter, we requested the leaders to come together in order to solve the issue".

"India's criminal laws and its enforcement systems have already resulted in the disproportionate and mass incarceration of Muslim, Adivasi and Dalit men". The Congress party too has been confident about the bill, terming it progressive but they first need to study the bill in detail before any critical comment. The passing of bill and implementation of it will set the future discourse of the triple talaq.
