‘A very poorly-drafted Bill with an eye on 2019 elections.’ Watch N. K. Premachandran’s speech on Triple Talaq Bill in Lok Sabha

After the Lok Sabha met on Thursday following an adjournment to take up the
Muslim Women(Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, commonly known as Triple Talaq Bill, RSP’s N K Premachandran moved a statutory resolution opposing an ordinance issued earlier, which the Bill seeks to replace, saying the Bill is bad in law as it seeks to criminalise a “civil wrong”.

“No justification in issuing the ordinance, it is purely passed with political motives and an eye on 2019 elections. It proposes criminalising a civil wrong. It is not there in Hindu law or Christian law, then why only in Muslim law?” he asked.
