Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Lok Sabha has passed the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, that seeks to ban instant triple talaq and leads to imprisonment for three years and fine, after a charged debate in the House, with several opposition members warning that the proposed law will make a civil offence a criminal wrongdoing.

Law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad moved the Bill banning Talaq-e-biddat in the wake of the August 22nd, S.C order declaring the practice “null and void”, unconstitutional and arbitrary. Minister cited a case of triple talaq in Rampur district reported in the media and pressed on the urgency of passing the Bill without sending it to the standing panel.
