Thursday's Mudda, the daily current affairs show of APN, debated the bill. While the government emphasised the need to pass the Bill on an urgent basis citing a Supreme Court judgement pronouncing triple talaq as unconstitutional, the opposition countered it saying the views of various stakeholders must be taken by the select panel. Even a cursory examination of the present provision would reveal that it would instead have been advisable for heavily penalising the husband for his wrong doing. "How will she feed her family?" The government may be able to avoid legislative scrutiny by bulldozing its way through, but it can not evade judicial scrutiny in case the law is subsequently challenged in the courts. We must note that this is a civil matter. On the other hand, why doesn't the government think about providing gender justice to scores of women, across communities, by making marital rape a criminal offence? "It will only make their lives worse", he said. Thus, the triple talaq Bill will now come for discussion and passage only in the Budget Session of Parliament.
Responding to them, Sharma said the Congress respects the women's rights and supports the Bill.
The point was naturally exploited by Jaitley to lead Treasury benches' charge against the Opposition: "What is the kind of parliamentary practice that you are creating".
Lashing out at the ruling party at the Centre she alleged, "It is a defective bill which they have introduced".
According to Ms Baner-jee, she never opposed the bill keeping the protection of the women in mind. But why should some Hindu MPs oppose a law that liberates the Muslim women from the arbitrary termination of marriage by their husbands at the drop of a hat?

Communist Party of India leader D. Raja on Tuesday said that the Left wants the Triple Talaq Bill to be referred to the Select Committee and accused the government of "bypassing the committees" on crucial bills. The repercussions will be worse. In Moradabad, a woman has filed a complaint against her husband and in-laws that she was given instant triple talaq by her husband because her family was not able to fulfil the demand of a Swift vehicle or Rs 10 lakh cash as dowry. "The issue is being politicised which shouldn't be the case".
Jaitley termed Congress' demand to refer the bill to the select committee as invalid.
However, today the Congress in Rajya Sabha stands for the rights and dignity of women. "We want to ensure the Bill goes through legislative scrutiny". It has effectively addressed its own primary vote bank, in addition to a substantive section of Muslim women. "The Muslim women are happy, but I don't know why the Congress is sad", he added. Talks on the model Nikhanama had begun 20 years ago. It should not be more than three years...
"We are not against social reform for any segment of society". The Bill is caught between these political considerations which makes it hard to examine the gender concerns beneath it.
