Bill against Triple Talaq has freed Muslim women, says PM Modi

According to reports, the Centre is keen to get the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017 passed by parliament in the winter session which ends on January 5.

Though the NDA does not have a majority of its own in the Rajya Sabha, the government is confident as the Congress, which is the second dominant party in the upper house, did not object when the bill was put for voting in Lok Sabha on Thursday. The police is however puzzled as to which section to apply against the "accused" as the bill is still to be passed by Rajya Sabh and signed by the President of India to become a law. The women activists hailed the government's move to ban the practice triple talaq by terming it as a "start".

Prasad, earlier in the day, exhorted the Lok Sabha to not link Triple Talaq bill with religion, politics or vote bank. No one knows what is Sharia, Talaq-e-Biddat. Prasad has also spoken to Ghulam Nabi Azad, opposition leader in the Rajya Sabha, who has a huge influence on the congress strategies in parliament.

However, the incident does show that the victims of triple talaq do feel the need for police intervention - something many "liberal" activists don't seem to realize.

Trump Administration Moves to Allow States to Impose Medicaid Work Requirements
It is more common for Medicaid enrollees to hold jobs if they live in states that expanded Medicaid under Obamacare. The Trump administration will allow states for the first time to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients.

Social Democratic Party of India demand that the government shall reconsider the bill and come in to a consensus with the community leaders in the light of the Supreme Court verdict making triple talaq null and void. In the Lok Sabha, Congress MPs Sushmita Dev and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury had approached towards amendments in the hunt for an independent corpus for affected women and to take out the "criminality" clause in the legislation.

Responding to our report, Owaisi had said, "If this Bill becomes law then in future government can bring a simple amendment to set aside/make unconstitutional, Talaaq Ehsan and HASAN so whole goal is to deny Muslims to get married according to their religion".

"Never was punishment a part of the demand nor was triple talaq sought to be made a crime". The wife would also be entitled to the custody of minor children. A historical step is taken today in Parliament for empowerment of women with the passing of the Triple Talaq Bill. The country is faced with thousands of cases of women's oppression by men but no one ever advocated death by hanging to them.
