Winter session of parliament ends, House fails Muslim women

Winter Session Of Parliament Ends Triple Talaq Bill Pushed To Budget Session

It accused the Congress of double standards and insisted that the bill be debated in the Rajya Sabha so that it can "expose the Congress' hypocrisy" for opposing it in the upper house after supporting it in the Lok Sabha, where it sailed through last week since the government has a big majority.

Charging the BJP government at the Centre of misleading people on the Triple Talaq Bill, the Congress on Friday alleged that the ruling party did not want to pass the Bill but only use it for propaganda against the Opposition. He was referring to Section 4 of the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, which states: "Whoever pronounces triple talaq upon his wife shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and a fine".

"We are committed to it (bill) and assure the Muslim women that this illegal practice (of instant triple talaq) will be abolished", said Mr Naqvi. "They are doing injustice the same way they did in the Shah-Bano case", Kumar told reporters here in Parliament. The Bill, which was cleared by a voice vote in Lok Sabha on Dec.28 and was stuck in the Rajya Sabha.

Blaming Congress for not following 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".

The upper house was adjourned multiple times during the week over the bill that was briefly discussed in the house, reports said.

He said the government was committed to passing the legislation, also opposed by various Muslim groups.

When the Budget Session starts on January 29, the motion, which was moved by Congress leader Anand Sharma against a provision in the bill, will be taken up for consideration.

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.
