Parliamentary Affairs Minister Vijay Goel today said that it is indeed a big day for Muslim women.
He was referring to the debate in the Lok Sabha on the bill on instant triple talaq.
Leaders from various parties spoke on the issue of the proposed law that will make instant triple talaq illegal and void and attract a jail term of three years for the husband.
Goel said that the central government is going to pass the bill against triple talaq and could have happened back in year 2017.
Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge appealed to the government to refrain from interfering in religious matters.
The government, he said, is interfering in every religious matter.
CPI leader D Raja told reporters that the bill should be sent to a select committee for further deliberations.
According to Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant, the husband should not directly be sent to jail. >
