We reject the legislation on criminalising triple talaq: Karnataka minister Tanveer Sait

The bill, if implemented into a law, will make Triple Talaq a criminal offense.

Hundreds of Muslim women will assemble at the residence of Minister of State (MoS) Vijay Goel on Sunday to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the triple talaq bill. "The Muslim women are happy, but I don't know why the Congress is sad", he added.

Several Opposition parties had insisted on wider consultations to address alleged loopholes in the bill, although it received the Lok Sabha's nod on Thursday.

The government and the opposition are likely to lock horns on Tuesday when a landmark bill that criminalises instant triple talaq among Muslims, already passed by the Lok Sabha, is tabled in the Rajya Sabha.

Raiders to pursue Jon Gruden
He's making $6.5 million annually to talk about football, and not have the insane stress that comes with being an NFL head coach. According to the ESPN report, the Raiders' offer to Gruden could include an ownership stake in the team.

According to Business Standard, the Centre described the voting as "historic" and even said that there is no doubt that the Bill will be passed in Rajya Sabha as well.

Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Tuesday attacked the Congress for its "confused" stand on the Triple Talaq Bill and wanted to know why it was sad while the Muslim women were happy. The Congress party, which demanded the bill to be referred to standing committee, may have its way as the bill may finally be referred to a parliamentary committee for review. "But the BJP-led NDA government is bypassing the committee system", Raja said. It was passed after the House rejected a string of amendments moved by various Opposition members. "These are sensitive matters, we should not repent in future", he said.

This bill gives power to the victim to approach a magistrate seeking "subsistence allowance" for herself and minor children in the case of instant triple talaq or talaq-e- biddat.
