Amid the opposition of Congress, Lok Sabha OKs triple account talaq 186-74 | News from India


NEW DÉLHI: Modi's government made a political argument by introducing the new "triple talaq" project that seeks to ban and punish instant divorce among Muslims amidst verbal clashes on the first day of operation in Lok Sabha and an easily transported formal division by the Treasury. Banks
The decision to bring the law, intended to replace a decree giving force to a Supreme Court ruling containing the triple talaq as unconstitutional, at the beginning of the 17th Lok Sabha was an attempt by the BJP to underline a prominent promise and urge opponents to reconsider in light of the large endorsement the NDA has received from voters.
As law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad asked for permission to introduce the Muslim Women's Law (Protection of Rights at Marriage) of 2019, the congressional opposition opposed the legislation as "discriminatory," while the minister said it was not about religion, but "justice for women." With MIM's Asaduddin Owaisi seeking a vote, the government's proposal won by 186-74, although in the process it has left Congress in the difficult position to oppose the bill by voting after an election in which it was seen as the country receptor of the Hindu polarization.
Prasad questioned the opposition's arguments, saying that 229 instant divorce cases were reported even after the SC declared the practice unconstitutional. "Now what should be done? Should women hang judgment in their homes? That is why deterrence is a must," Prasad said, justifying the law.
Congressional Shashi Tharoor began by explaining that Congress was not advocating "triple talaq," but opposed the text of the bill that "merges civil and criminal laws." The government has argued that without criminal provisions – some restrictions have been added – the SC decision makes no sense.
The project has been in limbo for about two years, with the BJP without the numbers for its passage in Rajya Sabha. His ally JD (U) refused to support the project and parties like BJD and AIADMK opposed him as well.
However, BJP managers are hopeful of making a renewed effort aided by some parties going out instead of voting against the law.
The Center issued decrees in September 2018 and February 2019, as the litigation project was still pending in Rajya Sabha, after having been approved by the Chamber of Deputies and therefore finally expired. On Friday, the Modi government ensured that it was the first item in the legislative business of the 17th Lok Sabha. It sets the stage for another debate on the bill and its approval in the House of Representatives.
