Triple Talaq Bill: A Social Reform or Just a Dead Mans Gun?

Reshma J. Fathima


Abstract: The Lok Sabha recently passed The Muslim Women ( Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017 and the main objective of the bill was very simple that to protect the rights of married Muslim women and to demolish the idea of divorce by just saying Talaq Talaq Talaq by their husband. This article is just a glimpse of what had happened behind in the making of the Bill and its passing in Lok Sabha and what are the blunders that were made in the Bill and would this be just a letter of law with no legal effects or whatsoever. The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017 serves as a baton to punish any Muslim husband who use Triple Talaq for divorce, under criminal offence which could lead him a Jail Term up to 3 years and a fine. But anyway, as we know the Bill can be made as a Law under Indian Constitution only when passed in Rajya Sabha, and which is yet to happen. But in August, The Supreme Court made very clear that the practice by which the Muslim men divorce their wives by saying the word Talaq three times in just one sitting is Unconstitutional. But whats more interesting is that, the Bill when passed by Lok Sabha, had so many riddles with many contradictions internally that one is left pondering on what purpose this Bill would serve.
