Union Cabinet clears ordinance on instant Tripe-Talaq

Union Cabinet clears ordinance on instant Tripe-Talaq

Once the ordinance comes into force, it has to be approved by Parliament within six months.

The Congress on Wednesday alleged that the Narendra Modi government is using instant triple talaq as "political football" to seek fake credits. "It is a pure issue of gender justice, gender dignity and gender equality", he said.

"We tried a lot to bring Congress with us".

"There was an overpowering urgency and a compelling necessity to bring the ordinance as the practice continued unabated despite the SC order past year", Prasad told a press conference.

"It is my serious charge that despite having a woman leading the Congress, they did not lend support to the bill", he told reporters.

He still expressed confidence that Kavanaugh would be confirmed, saying, "I'm not concerned about tanking the nomination". However, he also said that he reached out to Ford " three or four times " and had not received a response.


Describing the practice as "barbaric and inhuman", he said almost 22 countries have regulated triple talaq.

Ravi Shankar Prasad said it was vote bank politics that had stopped the Congress from supporting the bill.

"I will again appeal to (Congress leader) Sonia ji that this ordinance has been brought in the interest of the country to bring gender justice".

He said instant triple talaq was "an illegal, unconstitutional and inhuman practice" that was quashed by the Supreme Court.

Sources later said the magistrate would ensure that bail is granted only after the husband agrees to grant compensation to the wife as provided in the bill.

He added, "Secondly, it's compoundable, it can be compromised only at the insistence of the wife upon appropriate terms and conditions as determined by the magistrate". "The rationale.is that this is a private dispute between wife and husband so wife must be heard", Prasad said.

"But the Modi government would not want that, they don't want upliftment of Muslim women", he told news channels.

However, the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017, has diluted three provisions.

The police would lodge an FIR only if approached by the victim (wife), her blood relations or people who become her relatives by virtue of her marriage. Others, like neighbours, can not lodge an FIR to prevent misuse of the proposed law.

He also asked that why should the onus of proving instant triple talaq be on women as per the proposed Legislation or the proposed Ordinance. The bill was passed by the Lok Sabha in December previous year.

Downgraded from a tropical depression, the deadly storm still had abundant rain and top winds around 25 miles per hour (35 kph). More rain and flooding is expected in the days to come , as the now-tropical depression slowly heads towards the Ohio Valley.


However, the amended triple talaq bill provides for additional safeguards, including a provision for bail to an accused before the start of the trial. This was one of the demands made by the Opposition. But the Congress has so far failed to respond.
