Default India introduced law to ban Talaq-e-Biddat

Bill criminalizing triple talaq passed in Lok Sabha.
Introduced, discussed and passed just in half a day. Wow, quick work.

However, the bill will have problems in the Upper House where the ruling party, Bharatiya Janta Party (the Hindu and PM Modi's party) does not have a majority.

I am correct in assuming Talaq-e-Biddat is the Muslim practice of divorcing a woman by saying "I divorce you." three times?

If so, the ban is probably a good thing but I imagine in may not be popular in the Muslim community. They will probably view it as an attack on Islam.

It is welcomed by the Muslim women. It is not liked by the Ulema and Muslim men. Understandable.

The law got stuck in the Upper House because BJP does not hqve a majority there. But no problem, there will be another session by end of January. How long can Congress and opposition parties can delay it! They will loose votes.

We have problem on our hands. Supreme Court said 'Talak-e-biddat' is criminal. We have had a few cases since then, but we do not have a law to punish them.
