“Triple Talaq” Bill Passed In Lok Sabha

A bill that makes instant “Triple Talaq” a criminal offence and proposes a three-year jail term for a Muslim man who divorces his wife by uttering the word “talaq” thrice, has been passed in Lok Sabha with a voice vote after a debate this evening.

It could, however, get stuck in the Rajya Sabha. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at a meeting of BJP parliamentarians this morning that he hopes the bill will be passed in parliament with the consensus of all parties.
