Instant triple talaq to be criminal offence, Centre clears executive order

Many Muslim organisations have opposed what it calls government interference in personal laws of the community

In August, the government had agreed to three changes to make the bill more palatable to opposition parties and address some of the criticism aimed at it.

The BJP has accused the Congress of stonewalling the passage of the Triple Talaq Bill in the Rajya Sabha which was passed in the Lok Sabha on December 29, 2017.

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

However, the Bill did not see the light of day after opposition parties in the Rajya Sabha expressed reservations regarding some provisions of the Bill.

"It is my serious charge that Sonia Gandhi ji has maintained silence on the issue". However, gender justice was given a complete go-by in a secular country like India because of blatant vote bank politics. According to the new amendments, while the law remains "non-bailable", the accused can approach the Magistrate to seek bail even before trial.

In a non-bailable offence, bail can not be granted by police at the police station itself. A magistrate can grant bail only after the wife's consent. "The rationale.is that this is a private dispute between wife and husband so wife must be heard", Prasad said.

The quantum of compensation will be decided by the magistrate, as per the bill.

"The offence is compoundable".

Triple talaq ordinance a welcome step, I am very happy that Centre has taken such a decision: Ishrat Jahan, petitioner in case.

Describing the ordinance as anti-women, Owaisi said it was also in violation of the fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution.

He also said that he was "delighted" the Cabinet gave its approval to the "historic" Triple Talaq ordinance. "Congress didn't support us just for the sake of its vote bank politics", Prasad said, addressing a press conference.

The Congress-led Opposition has been demanding that the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017 be sent to a select committee of Parliament for further scrutiny. "We have all the evidence and a series of papers in this regard", he told reporters.
