Union Cabinet makes triple talaq a punishable offence

Recently, a 62-years-old husband gave her 29-years-old wife triple talaq on WhatsApp in Hyderabad. To stop this act of discrimination against Muslim women the Union Cabinet today had ordered triple talaq as a punishable offence after the Rajya Sabha failed to pass the law. The step is seen as a big win for the rights of Muslim women. Giving triple talaq is a non-bailable offence, even the police can’t grant it.
