Anti Triple Talaq bill to be tabled in Rajya Sabha tomorrow

Hopefully the new year will bring an end to the disruptions in parliament.

The bill  makes the practice of instant triple talaq among Muslims a criminal offence, with a three-year jail term for the husband.

The opposition parties are demanding that the bill be sent to a select committee for further scrutiny.

The bill has already been passed by the Lok Sabha, with 245 voting in favour and 11 opposing it.
