Triple Talaq Bill Passed in Lok Sabha Amid Opposition Uproar

The Triple Talaq Bill was passed in the Lok Sabha on Thursday, 25 July amid uproar in the House by the Opposition over sending the Bill to a Standing Committee. While 303 members voted in favour of the Bill, eight members voted against it.

Earlier, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad opened the debate, saying it must be ensured that Muslim women are part of the country’s growth.

The Congress had said it would oppose the bill in the House. MP K Suresh had said, “As far as Triple Talaq Bill is concerned, Criminality Clause maybe misused by the police and the government. So we’ll strongly oppose the Criminality Clause. If the government sticks to that, we’ll ask for division.”

However, speaking in favour of the bill, BJP MP Mukhtar Abaas Naqvi said, “It actually is a blot on our society and should be abolished.”

The ongoing Parliament session will be extended till 6 August, PTI reported quoting sources.
