Opposition opposes Triple Talaq Bill tabled by govt in Lok Sabha
Ruckus was created in Parliament after the government tabled Triple Talaq Bill in Lok Sabha on Friday. While the Congress opposed introduction of the Bill, AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi raked up Kerala’s Sabarimala temple issue. Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, however, rejected the opposition’s arguments saying, “It is the work of Parliament to enact a law. The interpretation of the law should be left to the courts.” Earlier on June 12, the Union Cabinet approved the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019. Doing away with Triple Talaq has been one of the key poll promises of the Modi government.
