PM Modi slams Congress over triple talaq bill
PM Modi panned the Congress for finding faults with the triple talaq bill
Congress argued if a man goes to jail, how will he provide for his family. PM Modi said that logic could be used to argue against any criminal law. Speaking in the Rajya Sabha where the Congress-led opposition had blocked the proposed law to ban triple talaq, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday gave it back to Congress for trying to find faults with his government's version of the law. The NDA government had last year drafted the Muslim Women Protection of Rights in Marriage Bill 2017 to make the instant "triple talaq" a criminal offence. It had proposed up to three years in jail as punishment for a Muslim man who seeks to divorce his wife by saying "talaq" thrice.
