AIMPLB seeks meeting with President Kovind on triple talaq bill

"The government is committed to pass important Bills like Triple Talaq Bill and the National Commission for Backward Classes Bill and cooperation is expected from all parties on such issues of national importance", said Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar at the conclusion of the Winter Session.

The government in Rajya Sabha was hoping to get a breakthrough in the standoff over the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, which seeks to outlaw talaq-e-biddat or instant triple talaq and punish offenders with a jail term.

Lok Sabha adjourned, sine-die. "It is probably for the first time that the opposition (Congress) was ready to vote but the BJP MPs and surprisingly the cabinet ministers disrupted the Rajya Sabha", he added.

The BJP leader's remarks came as the deadlock over the bill in the Rajya Sabha continued on Thursday with the government rejecting the opposition's insistence on sending the bill to the Select Committee for detailed scrutiny.

Countering Congress for not following the parliamentary procedures, Jaitley said the whole country "is watching that in the other House you supported the Bill and here you are trying to derail it". We can only commend the ruling party for striking a blow for the long-suffering Muslim women.

Justin Timberlake Introduces New Album, 'Man Of The Woods'
He says this album is his most personal album yet, proving that every other album was created by an imaginary Justin Timberlake . In a 2016 interview with the BBC, Timberlake declined to describe it as a country album but acknowledged the influence.

Likewise, the objective was to rid the Muslim marriage of an abominable practice, Prasad had said while terming the Bill 'historic.' As for the charge that the BJP was out to exploit the Bill politically, well, if the progressive reform furthers the reformist image the party it can not be grudged the credit.

"The Opposition obstructed the (OBC Commission) Bill with a meaningless amendment in the Rajya Sabha".

The bill, if enacted, will make triple talaq a criminal offence. The legislation proposes to criminalise instant triple talaq and suggests up to three years in jail as punishment for a Muslim husband who divorces his wife by uttering "talaq" thrice.

After attempts to convince other parties to evolve a consensus around the bill failed during the winter session, the BJP, may try and bring the bill around the budget session of parliament which will begin in less than a month.
