Government Brings in Ordinance To Ban Triple Talaq

Government Brings in Ordinance To Ban Triple Talaq-Triple talaq or instant divorce will be an offense with the government today clearing an ordinance. The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017 has been passed in the Lok Sabha but has been stalled in the Rajya Sabha over protests by the opposition.

Triple talaq is the practice of Muslim men getting an instant divorce by saying the word “talaq” thrice. With this ordinance, Triple Talaq is an offense with a jail term of up to three years and a fine. The woman will be entitled to maintenance.

The government has made some changes according to the demands of the Opposition. In the reworked version, the complaint can be filed only by the woman or her family and the woman can also drop charges if her husband is open to a compromise. A judge can decide on the bail.
