Union Cabinet approves ordinance to ban triple talaq

Modi govt using Triple Talaq as political football for 'fake credit seeking': Congress

MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday said the ordinance passed by the Union Cabinet making triple talaq a criminal offence will do more injustice to Muslim women.

"What is important is that the practice of triple talaq continues in spite of Supreme Court having annulled it and Lok Sabha having passed a bill which is pending in the Rajya Sabha".

During the Monsoon session, triple talaq bill was deferred to the next session after the parties in the Rajya Sabha failed to reach an agreement over the amended bill.

"Instead of false credit-seeking, bravado and chest thumping, let PM Modi and the law minister answer the question as to why they did not bring a legislation or ordinance to ban instant triple talaq between 26 May 2014 until the judgment of the Supreme Court (on 22 August, 2017)". This ordinance will not provide justice to the Muslim women.

"So there was compelling necessity to come up with an ordinance", Prasad said.

For Third Straight Year, Trump Administration Lowers Refugee Cap
The lower numbers reflect the Trump administration's opposition to accepting refugees and other immigrants into the US. Cases are screened by the Defence Department, FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies.

However, the bill faced stiff resistance in the Rajya Sabha. "It's my serious charge with full sense of responsibility that a distinguished woman leader is ultimate leader of the Congress, yet barbaric inhuman Triple Talaq was not allowed to be ended by a Parliamentary law for pure vote bank politics", he said.

The Hyderabad MP said the Supreme Court, in its verdict on triple talaq, had stated that if a man pronounces triple talaq, the marriage does not get dissolved. "Thirdly, bail can be granted by the magistrate upon reasonable grounds but only after hearing the victim wife also".

Further, in order to safeguard the rights of the woman against whom Triple Talaq has been pronounced, she would be entitled to subsistence allowance for herself and her dependent children, at the discretion of the Magistrate. The Bill is yet to be introduced in the upper House of the Parliament. "Modi government not making this an issue for justice for Muslim women, but making this into a political issue", said Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.

The third amendment makes the law "compoundable", where a magistrate can use his powers to settle the dispute between the husband and wife. It now needs only approval from the president to become law.

Between January 2017 to September 2018, 430 cases of Triple Talaq have been reported, Ravi Shankar Prasad tweeted, adding that 229 cases were reported prior to Supreme Court judgement and 201 cases reported after the judgement.
