Triple Talaq bill passed by Parliament

New Delhi, July 30 (IANS) The Bill outlawing Triple Talaq was on Tuesday passed in the Rajya Sabha.

The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019, was tabled in the upper house for debate and passage by Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, who said that though the practice had been banned in many Islamic countries, India had not done so despite being a secular nation.

The Bill, which criminalises the practice of instant divorce among the Muslim community, has already been passed by the Lok Sabha.
