Modi hopes triple talaq bill gets passed as ‘New Year gift to Muslim women’

Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a fresh pitch for early passage of the bill to criminalise the practice of instant triple talaq by “humbly requesting” political parties to pass it in the Budget session which began Monday.

In his customary address to the media outside Parliament House building on the first day of the session, Modi said it was the government’s effort as well as the expectation of the people that there would be no politics on an important issues like triple talaq and Muslim women would get their right.

“But in the last session, despite a Supreme Court ruling, we could not get the bill passed in Parliament. I hope and I humbly request all political parties of the country to get the bill passed in this session as a New Year gift of 2018 to Muslim women,” he was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
