National Medical Commission Bill tabled in Lok Sabha

Bill criminalising triple talaq introduced in Lok Sabha

Scores of people on micro-blogging site Twitter today hailed the passage of the much-anticipated Triple Talaq Bill in the Lok Sabha.

A bill to replace the apex medical education regulator - Medical Council of India (MCI) with a new body, to ensure transparency, was introduced in the Lok Sabha on Friday.

India is moving to outlaw the practice of "triple talaq", which allows men to divorce their wives by saying "talaq" three times.

According to it, giving instant talaq would attract a jail term of three years and a fine.

The Congress on Thursday said that they wanted certain amendments but the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government was "in a hurry to pass" the Triple Talaq Bill.

The passing of the Bill in the Lok Sabha observed deterrence by Congress' Malikarjun Kharge as he objected following AIMIM's Owaisi who alleged that it violates the Right to Freedom and that the minority wasn't involved in the consultation.

Titled the "Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017", the proposed law also gives a triple talaq "victim" a right to seek maintenance from her husband before a magistrate's court.

# The proposed law will make "Triple Talaq" a cognisable offence and a woman will not need to approach court.

There is provision for subsistence allowance from the husband for the livelihood and daily supporting needs of the wife as also of the dependent children. The government had chose to introduce legislation to end the practice of instant triple talaq after the Supreme Court struck down the practice.

# TheMuslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill makes "any pronouncement of Talaq" by a person in any form - written, spoken or electronic - void and illegal.

While Justices Nariman, Lalit and Joseph were in favour of doing away with instant triple talaq, CJI Khehar and Justice Nazeer had disagreed with them.
