TALAQ TALAQ TALAQ TO TRIPLE TALAQ
Finally the Rajya Sabha has approved the bill that turnsthe practice of instant triple talaq into a criminal offence. Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted stating that archaic and medieval practice has finally been confined to the dustbin of history. He added that India is rejoicingtoday. The contentious bill that provides for a jail term to a Muslim man for the crime, was moved for passage in the Upper House after a smooth passage at Loksabha, with the Congress opposing it and the NDA ally JD(U) staging a walkout.
Triple Talaq, also known as talaq-e-biddat, instant divorcepractice also referred as talaq-e-mughallazah (irrevocable divorce) is a form of Islamic divorce which has been used by particularly by Indian Muslims, more specifically by adherents of Hanafi Sunni Islamic schools. It allows any Muslim man to legally divorce his wife by stating the word talaq (the Arabic word for “divorce”) three times in oral, written, or more recently, electronic form. This practice has remained in the centre of controversy as the same violates the gender equality, human rights for Muslims women and raises many questions about justice and human rights. In general the debate is also related to the application Of Uniform Civil Code in India, which was one of the important election promise made by ruling government. The matter was also decided by the apex judiciary where 3 of the five judges in the panel concurred that the practice of triple talaq is unconstitutional.
By the passage of RTI bill, Modi Government has got cleared this contentious bill too which is enough to indicate that government has reached the satisfactory strength in Rajyasabha too to clear any bill they wish. Loksabha majority also allows government to take firm and strict action further.
