Union Cabinet clears bill, makes triple talaq criminal offence

Triple talaq worse than murder BJP minister Giriraj Singh

"A meeting of the office-bearers of the AIMPLB and of some other important Muslim leaders is to be held on December 17 which will decide about the response of Muslims to this Bill", he said. "If it is not so, then no Muslim woman will accept it", she said.

According to the draft law prepared by an inter- ministerial group headed by Home Minister Rajnath Singh, giving instant triple talaq will be "illegal and void" and will attract a jail term of three years for the husband.

Making an appeal for a codified Muslim personal law, the letter states, "Although the Supreme Court set aside triple talaq in its judgment of 22nd August, issues such as nikah halala, polygamy, age of marriage, custody of children etc remain unaddressed".

A bill that proposes to make the "triple talaq" a criminal offence has been cleared by the union cabinet and the government hopes to get parliament clearance for it during the short winter session that began today.

Many Muslim countries have banned "triple talaq", including Pakistan and conservative Saudi Arabia.

"We approved The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, which is to protect victims of triple talaq", he added.

"In the process the Muslim women have been denied their Quranic rights as well as their constitutional rights as Indian citizens", said the letter to newly anointed Congress president.The letter pointed out that almost all Muslim countries in the world such as Morocco, Tunisia, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan and even Bangladesh and Pakistan have codified personal laws governing marriage and family matters, but Indian Muslim women continue to be denied the protection of law.

"We have neither seen the bill nor its content and its scope".

He said it was created to shield the helpless victims of triple talaq and to give them dignity and security. "So, this kind of Personal Law Board argument for any kind of reform is not accepted", the activist said.

"Through the letter, we requested the leaders to come together in order to solve the issue". So, it should not be the matter of ego for the Muslim Personal Law Board. The Congress party too has been confident about the bill, terming it progressive but they first need to study the bill in detail before any critical comment.

The bill will also give women right to seek maintenance in case of Triple Talaq.
