The Lok Sabha on Thursday passed the Muslim ladies (safety of Rights on Marriage) bill, 2018 that makes on the spot triple talaq or talaq-e-biddat a crook offence, with a reformatory term of up to three years with a high-quality.
The bill, which seeks to interchange an ordinance promulgated in September prohibiting divorce by way of pronouncing “talaq” by the husband, was once passed after over four-hour discussion that noticed some heated exchanges between the opposition and treasury benches.
Before a vote on the bill, the Congress and the AIADMK staged a walkout over the government for not accepting their demand to refer it to a joint decide on committee of the Parliament.
The invoice makes instant triple talaq a cognizable offence, attracting up to three years’ imprisonment with a high-quality. The offence will probably be cognizable if know-how in terms of the offence is given via the married girl in opposition to whom talaq has been reported or any person related to her via blood or marriage.
The proposed regulation can be relevant to entire India, besides Jammu and Kashmir.
