Controversial National Medical Commission Bill To Be Tabled in Lok Sabha Today

Instant Talaq Bill to reach Rajya Sabha today

One can only hope that the bill will then incorporate amendments to strengthen it further and shed some of the proposed provisions that might subvert the very goal of the bill: to provide gender justice to Muslim women. But the BJP-led NDA government is bypassing the committee system", he said "They are saying "don't send bills to the Standing Committee for closer scrutiny".

"Sabha passing it, triple talaq is being given". Ironically, the Muslim woman in whose name the law is being proposed, is put in a no-win situation, because if she doesn't approach the police she is stuck in a bad marriage, and if she does, she and her children risk harassment and deprivation from the monetary relief that divorce assures. While they are not opposing the bill, may be in fear of losing the votes of Muslim women, the parties are crying for review in the Select Committee as they feel the bill consists of errors, in what many say is an attempt to pacify the hardline sections of Muslim community. "Congress is not ready to have a discussion on the Bill and has adopted a negative attitude to stall the Bill".

Law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad met Azad on Wednesday in an effort to resolve the deadlock but couldn't offer a solution to the alimony question. Kumar added that the government has been talking to the Congress and other parties to pass the triple talaq bill. "But what is being hustled through in the Parliament is merely a provision to use a criminal law which would totally destroy the future of a Muslim woman who only seeks to get rid of an unwanted husband".

The Shariah Faisla Board has announced to campaign for a Talaq-free Muslim society. "This bill lacks coherence. It is self-defeating", Asaduddin Owaisi, president of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen and a member of parliament, told DW.

Objecting strongly to the way Sharma moved the motion, Jaitley said a motion couldn't be given suddenly in the House without prior notice and without consultation with the ruling party (government). The charge by the Ministers that the opposition parties, and more specifically the Congress party, was against Muslim women was dismissed by all members who managed to get in a few words amidst the din that was constant. The bill is also silent about how the husband will be able to pay the subsistence allowance if his source of earning is barred by imprisoning him. This Act secures the rights of all women to maintenance, residence, protection from violence and to custody of their children. He said that despite a Supreme Court verdict, incidents of triple talaq were taking place in the country. The women at the time of entering into marriage contract can include clauses enabling her to pronounce talaq on man or barring the man from announcing the instant triple talaq. It is also a fact that a small section of Muslim women have been unjustly treated by their spouses with the pronouncement of triple talaq without even understanding the concept and practice.
