Our party’s position is absolutely clear on this, I will not say anything on this further: Sonia Gandhi on triple talaq bill.
Triple talaq, or verbal divorce, is practised by a section in the Muslim community to instantly divorce their wives by uttering `talaq` three times.
If the amended bill is passed in the Upper House, it will need approval from the Lok Sabha.
So we need to change as a whole: Hussain Dalwai, Congress MP on Triple TalaqBill.
On December 29, the Lok Sabha passed the bill which seeks to make instant triple talaq a criminal offence, a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government tabled it in the lower house.
