After deadlock, talaq bill pushed to Budget session

After deadlock, talaq bill pushed to Budget session

The passage of Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, popularly known as the Triple talaq Bill, will be delayed at least till the Budget Session of Parliament as the Rajya Sabha adjourned sine die on Friday without taking a decision on the legislation.

While the opposition demanded that the amendment seeking to send the instant talaq bill to the committee be put to vote, the government questioned the move citing some technical issues.

Azad said the Congress had objections to the clause in the Bill that made divorce a cognizable offence.

The Congress and other parties, including BJP ally Telugu Desam Party and the AIADMK and Biju Janata Dal, called Government-friendly parties because they regularly help it pass Legislation in the Rajya Sabha - want further scrutiny of the Bill by a Select Committee of the House, primarily voicing concern over the provision for a jail term. He was referring to Section 4 of the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, which states: "Whoever pronounces triple talaq upon his wife shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and a fine".

In the Rajya Sabha, less than a week later, the Opposition came together to make this demand much more forcefully.

The minister said it was a "shame" for the Congress that it was trying to "obstruct this part of justice" for Indian Muslim women.

"It is wrong to say that Muslim women are opposing the bill as all triple talaq victims are participating in the protest".

She also objected to the Congress' suggestion of sending the triple talaq bill to a select committee, Farah said, "Why didn't Congress propose to send the bill to a joint committee?"

Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati on Friday accused the Bharatiya Janta Party for stalling the Triple Talaq Bill in the Upper House just as the Central Government is not ready to listen to other Political Parties.

She, however, said there were some shortcomings in the bill.
