Rajya Sabha defers discussion on Triple Talaq Bill

PROTEST AGAINST TALAQ BILL

Andalib Akhter / NEW DELHI

The Rajya Sabha today deferred the discussion on The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017 today. As soon as the House met post lunch, Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu announced that the discussion on the Triple Talaq Bill will not take place because of differences among political parties.

The Bill aims to protect rights of married Muslim Women and prohibit instant Triple Talaq.

The Congress-led Opposition, demanded that the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017 be sent to a Select Committee for further

Today, when the Rajya Sabha reconvened at 2:30 PM after two adjournments in the pre-lunch session, Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu said he has decided that the bills “on which there is some sort of broad consensus” will be taken up for discussion and passage later in the day. Naidu also clarified that the Triple Talaq Bill will not be taken up today as a consensus has not yet been evolved on the issue.

Meanwhile, BJP held Congress president Rahul Gandhi responsible for the triple talaq bill not getting the parliamentary nod in the Monsoon Session, saying his party supported it in the Lok Sabha but not in the Rajya Sabha due to its double standards.

Earlier, Trinamool Congress members staged a walk out protesting against the Chairman decision to take up the legislative business late in the evening after completion of private members’ resolutions.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar told reporters that Gandhi and his party are directly responsible for the stalling of the bill, which entails prison term for Muslim men charged with instant divorce.

The Lok Sabha, which passed the bill, was adjourned sine die today. Kumar termed the Monsoon Session a landmark session, saying 21 bills were passed in the House which sat for 20 hours more than the allocated time.

The BJP-led government, which does not have a majority in the Upper House, had also made efforts to get the bill cleared in the Budget Session also.
