Triple talaq Bill to be tabled in Rajya Sabha tomorrow

PTI
The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill is scheduled to be tabled in the Rajya Sabha tomorrow. It was passed by the Lok Sabha on Thursday amid a walkout by the Opposition. The Bill makes all declarations of instant triple talaq void and illegal. It seeks to make the practice a punishable offence with imprisonment of up to three years.

Law and Justice Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad will table the bill.  On Friday, Mr. Prasad had claimed the bill will find support in the Rajya Sabha, where the BJP-led NDA lacks numbers.

Meanwhile, BJP has issued a whip asking its members in the Upper House to be present. On the other hand,  the main opposition  Congress has said it will not allow passing of the bill in its present form.
