Union Cabinet approves inclusion of bail provision in triple talaq bill


New Delhi, Aug 9 (PTI): The Union Cabinet today approved inclusion of a provision of granting bail to men found guilty of giving instant triple talaq to their wives, sources in the government said.

Giving instant triple talaq will continue to be illegal and void and will attract a jail term of three years for the husband.

The 'Muslim Women Protection of Rights on Marriage Bill' was cleared by Lok Sabha and is pending in Rajya Sabha where the government lacks numbers.

Provision of bail was one of the demands of the opposition parties.

Under the amendments cleared today, the magistrate will have powers to grant bail, the sources said.

The proposed law would only be applicable on instant triple talaq or 'talaq-e-biddat' and it would give power to the victim to approach a magistrate seeking "subsistence allowance" for herself and minor children.

A woman can also seek the custody of her minor children from the magistrate who will take a final call on the issue.

    There is no such instant triple talaq mentioned in Quran. Islam doesnt permit such practice.
    Modi govt should stop shedding crocodile tears on muslim women. Instead they should focus on to find reforms on child prostitutions taking place in the name of tradition in majoritarians Banchada community which is still under practice in MP and Rajasthan.
    Child marriage and honor killings are still at large in Haryana and sarrounding states.Temple prostitution still we can see many places across India.
    Women are abandonning and no action has been taking place under law of the land.
    Child Shelter homes are turning prostitutions under the supervision of their own govt.
    Modi gvt playing double standard game with the intentions of vote bank politics.

    Dear Moshu, Mangaluru,

    I quote yours:There is no such instant triple talaq mentioned in Quran. Islam doesnt permit such practice.

    You say, there is no such instant tripple talaq is mentioned in the Quran.

    It is specified you / a husband can to marry 1-4 wives.
    Do you have such privilege???!!! No. Then why is this biased.

    Secondly, waiting period is three months.
    Once again the burden/punishment is on the wife after marriage also she has to wait for three month to enjoy. where was men can enjoy.

    As per your argument tripple Talaq is not in the Quran.

    So tell me where is the following SHAHADHA in the Quran:

    la ilaha il-lallah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan abduhu wa rasuluhu.

    SHOW ME THE ABOVE IN THE QURAN.

    @Ramesh,

    If Triple talaq is hanging sword on woman, what about abandoning wife without even divorce(talaq). Which is better according to you?. In triple talaq, the Woman can at least remarry.

    Further, according to you, if the husband is very cruel and gives triple talaq, what is the necessity for that wife to spend life with that beast.? Is she safe with the beast?. I believe that the triple talaq Bill is going to cause more harm than good.

    @Pedda Gunda,

    Right. But religion cannot be forced on any one.

    Divorce is also a mean to solve the severity of a problem.

    Meanwhile, It's basic human right to get separated when there is a valid reason. Be it a man or woman.

    Dear Nawaz, Udupi/ Kuwait,
    I quote yours: It's basic human right to get separated when there is a valid reason. Be it a man or woman.

    The valid reasons for divorce are.
    1) Impotent, Cannot have children. There is modern method TEST TUBE BABY.
    2) Mental illness.
    3) Deficiency/inaccuracy in the limbs/organs.


    Naturally both does quarrel. For this is the reason marriage should not be below the 18th age.
    FOR THIS IS THE REASON BOTH SHOULD KNOW /UNDERSTAND WELL EACH OTHER PRIOR TO MARRIAGE.

    TALAQ, TALAQ, TALAQ IS NOTHING BUT AN EXTRA SEXUAL HUNGER AND APPETITE IN HIM.

    While I agree with your statement, you do not clarify which part of the bill mixes politics with religion. The Bill itself is sound, and meets the long standing desire to get rid of the pernicious practice of triple talaq, and in my view the granting of bail is very reasonable, otherwise the offence created by the new law becomes cognizable and non-bailable , a provision reserved for very serious offences as in the new SC/ST Bill recently passed by LS.

    @Mohan,

    How the bill is sound?
    If the husband is in jail for 3 years for giving triple talaq;who will look after wife and children for 3 years? What purpose the bill will serve?
    When triple talaq is not considered as talaq; what is the legitimacy in giving 3 years imprisonment?.

    There are 2.5 million abandoned wives among Hindus, Muslims and Christians in India. These women and their children are left destitute and made to mind their affairs themselves. Although, each state has it's legal remedy, these women are either ignorant or have no means to pursue their rights. Legally, these women cannot remarry. Hence, the central govt should come up with some laws that will make these women and their children to be out of vulnerability.
