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.
