BJP lashes out on Congress for opposing Triple Talaq Bill

New Delhi, Dec 28 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party leaders on Thursday lashed out at Congress for objecting to the Triple Talaq Bill by raising the issue of criminal provisions in the proposed law. Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal, and MPs Kirron Kher and Hema Malini took a pot shot at Congress by saying that opposing the Bill is wrong and those who oppose the bill are 'anti women'.

The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017, which seeks to criminalise the practice of Triple Talaq was tabled on Thursday by Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. Earlier in August, in a historic judgement the Supreme Court had ruled that the practice of divorce through Triple Talaq among Muslims is "void", "illegal" and "unconstitutional".
