Triple Talaq Bill introduced in RS amid ruckus by Oppn

Triple Talaq Bill introduced in RS amid ruckus by Oppn

New Delhi, Jan 3 (UNI) The Triple Talaq Bill was on Wednesday introduced in the Rajya Sabha amid the ruckus by the Opposition, which demanded that the Bill be referred to a Select Committee of the Upper House.

The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriages) Bill , 2017 was introduced in the House by Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad even as the Opposition members were raising an uproar on the Dalit violence in Maharashtra.

The Opposition member, however, raised an uproar, demanding that the Bill be referred to the Selection Committee of the Upper House.

On the Opposition demand to send it to the select committee, the Law Minister said the Bill has been necessitated after Supreme Court directed the government to frame a law to make talaq-e-biddat illegal.

'The Supreme Court gave its order in August declaring the instant triple talaq as illegal. It, however, urged the Government to come out with a legislation within six months.

'If this Bill is sent to Select Committee now, it will take another six months for it to be passed. We have to consider the plea of several Muslim. Triple talaq is continuing despite the Supreme Court banning it. This Bill is necessary. I appeal to the Congress to support the Bill,' he said amid disruptions by Opposition MPs.
