Triple Talaq: Congress To Consult Other Opposition Parties Before Decision

The party, however, opposes the provision in the bill criminalising the pronouncement of instantaneous triple talaq.

Meanwhile, the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) has claimed that various Muslim bodies in the country would move the Supreme Court if the bill is also passed by the Rajya Sabha.

Speaking to reporters in Kozhikode on Monday, Hassan said that his position on the triple talaq bill was not different from the congress party's official position on the issue. The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill is listed for introduction in the Rajya Sabha by Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on January 2, according to the list of business of the Upper House.

We believe we can stay (in the Premier League) but it will be tough, very tough work. "This is just the first step". We are still not in a good position, but the confidence is higher and belief is higher.

When the Bill was in the Lok Sabha, most of the leading parties in the Opposition, including Congress, had voted in its favour. "Let it go for reconsideration to Select Committee", says NCP leader Majeed Memon.

However, owing to the lack of a majority of the government in the Rajya Sabha, there are chances that the Bill may be impeded or blocked.

Union minister for minority affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi however exuded confidence that the bill will be passed in the Upper House the way it was passed in the Lok Sabha. "They are saying don't send bills to the Standing Committee for closer scrutiny". It was passed by the Lok Sabha on Thursday last week.

The opposition parties including Congress, SP, BSP, AIADMK, DMK, CPI, CPI (M), BJD want detailed deliberations on the criminality clause under which a Muslim man can be sentenced up to three-year imprisonment for abandoning his wife following Talaq-e-biddat or instant triple talaq.
