Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad confirmed that the "Muslim Women Protection of Rights on Marriage Bill" has been approved but refused to share details as Parliament is in session.

"It is regrettable that a constitutional value as important as gender justice is being used to merely further cynical political goals." wrote Owaisi.

A draft law which seeks to make the practice of instant triple talaq "illegal and void" and provides for a jail term for the husband was cleared by the Union Cabinet on Friday.

"We will certainly see the actual content and react in a measured responsible manner, depending on the language and the content", Singhvi said, adding: "But I want to remind you that well before the judgment of the Supreme Court came, we have given you very specific strong answers supporting the stoppage of triple talaq". In August, the Supreme Court said in a landmark ruling that the practice of Muslim men uttering "talaq" three times for an instant divorce is unconstitutional, reported NDTV. It is expected to be introduced during the Winter Session of Parliament that commenced on Friday.

National Commission of Women's (NCW) acting president Rekha Sharma on Saturday welcomed the Cabinet's approval of a Bill to make instant triple talaq or talaq-e-biddat a criminal offence.

The supreme court asked the government to frame a law which protects Muslim women from such crimes.

He said it was created to shield the helpless victims of triple talaq and to give them dignity and security.

He also attached a memorandum dealing with the legal and policy ramifications of criminalising triple talaq. Hence, any new law should be prepared in the light of Quran.

Many Muslim countries have banned "triple talaq", including Pakistan and conservative Saudi Arabia. The law would allow victims of instant divorce the ability to seek the custody of her minor children and receive maintenance from her husband after filing a complaint to police.
