new Delhi. The Muslim Women (Protection of Marriage Rights Protection) Bill, 2019 (Accelerated Three Divorce Bills) has passed in the Lok Sabha. After a long discussion on Thursday (July 25th), Lok Sabha approved this bill. These bills make divorce unlawful three times at the same time and for this, the husband provides punishment for three years.
Most of the Opposition parties in the Lok Sabha protested against the bill. At the same time BJP's ally JDU also came out against the bill. Congress, TMC, TRS, YSR Congress and JDU have voted against the bill before the House before voting. After this, voting was done. Bill's vote was 303 votes, while 82 votes were cast in opposition. In addition to the NDA, the BJD also voted in favor of the bill. On the amendment to the bill, the House rejected the two amendments brought by the Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi. NK Premchandran's amendment proposal was also dismissed.
The main provisions of this bill include the provision of three divorces i.e. to eliminate divorce-e-bidith, treating three divorces as cognizable offenses, husband's punishment for up to three years. The Modi government had brought this bill even during its first term but after the bill was stopped in the Rajya Sabha, it had to bring an ordinance on it.
During the discussion on the three divorce bills, Ravi Shankar Prasad said that after listening to the wife, the decision on Bell will be taken as it will have an opportunity of settlement. If someone only decides not to divulge the divorce, then he will be released if three divorces have been given. He said that marriage does not break on three divorces, so a provision has been made to provide the husband's allowance while staying in jail.
Speaking in opposition to the bill, AIMIM MP Asaduddin Owaisi said that this bill opposes the fundamental rights of the law. As long as I am alive, I will oppose this bill. Jaydev Galla of TDP said, "Will Christian or Hindu husband have to go to jail if he leaves wife?" Why is there a provision for sending a prison to a Muslim man after leaving his wife? RK NK Premchandran said, why the government is bringing the law on this issue, while the Supreme Court has not directed to do so? Why is not a law on mobs lining, which the Supreme Court has directed?
