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.

Isaiah Johnson scooped up the loose ball and returned it 7 yards for a touchdown and a 20-17 lead with 14:04 left. Kamara would add a 7-yard rushing touchdown and a 40-yard catch, continuing a phenomenal rookie season.

"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 government hailed the passing of the bill in Lok Sabha as "historic".
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.
