Govt to again bring a bill in Parliament to ban practice of instant triple talaq

@rsprasad
Government will again bring a bill in Parliament to ban the practice of instant triple talaq.
 
Law and Justice Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said this while taking charge of his ministry in New Delhi on Monday. He said, the issue of triple talaq is part of the party's manifesto.
 
With the dissolution of the 16th Lok Sabha last month, the bill on banning triple talaq had lapsed as it could not be passed by Parliament and was pending in Rajya Sabha.
 
The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill makes all declarations of instant triple talaq void and illegal. It seeks to make the practice a punishable offence with imprisonment of three years.
 
Talking about the priorities of his Ministry, Mr Prasad said, with synergy of technology and legal procedure, legal access will be made more effective.
