Centre blames Congress for stalling triple talaq bill

With the triple talaq bill failing to get through Rajya Sabha on the last day of the Winter Session of Parliament on Friday, the Narendra Modi government has now chose to bring it during the Budget Session which will commence from January 29. "This Bill is against the rights of Muslim women", he said, while maintaining that the entire House was united in its opposition to the practice of triple talaq. The Triple Talaq Bill or The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill seeks to outlaw Talaq-e-Biddat or instant triple talaq and punish offenders with a jail term.
Azad said the Congress had objections to the clause in the Bill that made divorce a cognizable offence. He said they were against the empowerment of Muslim women in India. The Congress wants the bill referred to a standing committee for review, but the government stood firm on opposing that demand.
The government has chose to put the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017, which seeks to criminalise instant divorce by uttering talaq thrice, for consideration on Friday - the last day of the winter session. "In the Rajya Sabha, the Congress came with an excuse to stall the Bill every day". Both the BJP and the Congress had, earlier in the day, issued a whip asking all its MPs to be present in the house today.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananthkumar said Congress chief Rahul Gandhi ran away from the debate on the talaq Bill. "Congress has repeated history what it did with the Musilm women in 1986", Farah said.
The Bill was cleared by the Lok Sabha through a voice vote but could not be passed in the Upper House due to a deadlock over the Opposition's demand seeking its reference to a Select Committee for close scrutiny.
She also objected to the Congress' suggestion of sending the triple talaq bill to a select committee, Farah said, "Why didn't Congress propose to send the bill to a joint committee?"
