Triple Talaq bill will be tabled today in the Parliament. Triple Talaq is the bill which seeks to criminalise the practice of instant triple talaq. Earlier, while hearing the Triple Talaq case, Supreme Court’s five judges bench declared the practice unconstitutional. The much-talked Muslim Women bill is soon going to be introduced by the government in Parliament today. However, according to the Muslims triple talaq is the religious practice and rule of instant divorce while Muslim women wanted to end this practice.

Triple Talaq in Muslims is also known as talaq-e-biddat which means instant divorce without any case and following constitutional rules. Triple Talaq is the form of Islamic divorce which has been used by Muslims in India. It allows a Muslim man to legally divorce his wife by just uttering a word talaq three times in written form, spoken or any electronic form. The Parliament will table the draft of Triple Talaq in which any pronouncement of talaq by a person upon his wife, by words, either spoken, written or any electronic medium shall be void and illegal.

The proposed law of Triple Talaq or instant divorce would allow victims to approach to the court for seeking subsistence allowance” for herself and minor children. Last week, Triple Talaq bill was listed for the introduction, however, Parliamentary affairs ministry said to introduce a bill in this week. As per the reports, the law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad will introduce the Muslim Women bill under the Protection of Rights and Marriage. The bill which prohibits instant divorce practice by a person upon his wife by words either spoken, written or any electronic form and in any other manner. Earlier in September, the apex court gave historic judgement on Triple Talaq, the court said practising of instant divorce through triple talaq among Muslims is illegal and unconstitutional by a two-third majority.
