Centre likely to bring law in Parliament to abolish triple talaq
New Delhi: The Centre has established a ministerial committee to bring a legislation to abolish the instantaneous triple talaq, the Muslim method of taking divorce, which is believably still in practise even after the Supreme Court ruling which struck it down.
According to a source in the government, the government is mulling to bring a suitable legislation or amend existing panel provisions to make triple talaq an offence.
As per today's law, a victim of 'talaq-e-biddat' has no other option but to approach the police for redressal of her grievance as a Muslim clergy would be of no assistance to her.
Even police becomes helpless as no action can be taken against the husband in the absence of punitive provisions in the law.
The ministerial committee has been formed to frame a law and the government is planning to bring this legislation in the Winter Session of Parliament, said the source.
Earlier in August 2017, the Supreme Court had abolished the controversial Islamic practise of triple talaq describing it as arbitrary and unconstitutional.
