Triple Talaq Bill To Be Tabled In Rajya Sabha

NEW DELHI

The Triple Talaq Bill will be tabled in Rajya Sabha. Almost a week after it was passed in Lok Sabha. The bill was passed in the lower house with the support of 245 votes against 11 on December 27.

The Triple Talaq Bill makes the practice of instant divorce among Muslims a criminal offence with a provision of three-year jail term for the erring husband.

The women wing of All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB)  criticised the bill stating that the “ill-drafted legislation gives a false sense of women empowerment”.
