Penal Law On Triple Talaq

By Lawstreet News Network Lawstreet News Network      Nov 22, 2017      0 Comments      1,413 Views

A ministerial committee has been set up by the Union Government to frame a penal law that would prescribe punishment in the case of use of triple talaq or talaq-e-biddat for divorce between Muslim couples, the Bill will be introduced in the winter session of the Parliament.

The committee will likely include high-profile Ministers – Home Minister Rajnath Singh, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and at least two Ministers of State.

The necessity for a new law was felt after it was found that practice of talaq-e-biddat was taking place even after the Supreme Court majority judgment, in August this year declaring the practice as unconstitutional.
