Triple talaq bill: Cong to consult other opposition parties


New Delhi, Jan 2 (PTI): The Congress would consult a larger opposition before finalising its stand on the contentious bill which proposed to ban instant triple talaq and make the practice a cognisable offence, party sources said.

The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, which has already been passed in the Lok Sabha last week, is likely to be taken up in the Rajya Sabha today.

According to the sources, Leader of Opposition in the Upper House Ghulam Nabi Azad has convened a meeting of the leaders of his party (the Congress) as well as other parties in his Parliament chamber today, before the bill is taken up.

The sources added that while the Congress was in favour of the bill as it proposed to ban instant triple talaq, whether it would press for sending it to the Select Committee, as has been the practice in the Rajya Sabha, would only be seen today.

The party might press for amendments in the bill, including a clause for maintenance to the Muslim women and making it mandatory for the man to prove that triple talaq had not been invoked, the sources said.

    why didnt the congress say or do anything when the bill came to loksabha?
    Time to show your true colours.
    Rajiv gandhi overturned the supreme court judgement on shah bano case after listening to some vested interest. Time for congress to show what they mean by secular.
    people of india are watching.

    Still confusing ......
    Is the ban is on triple talaq or Instant triple talaq ...
    This report , is talking about both ....
    If it is instant TT , I vote for it .... since it is misused .....
    But this is not a such major issue where 22 lakhs Hindu wives are not living with their legal husbands ... But these husbands go unpunished... that is the beauty of our democracy ....
