UP first state to endorse Centre's triple talaq draft bill

Thursday, December 07, 2017

Lucknow: The Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh regime has become the first state government to endorse the Modi government's draft bill that makes instant triple talaq a cognisable and non-bailable offence.

The draft law, which provides for three years in prison and a fine for a Muslim man trying to divorce his wife by uttering "talaq" three times, got the UP government's approval at a meeting of the state cabinet chaired by Chief Minister Adityanath here last night.

"The Centre's draft Bill on triple talaq has been endorsed by the Cabinet. The Centre had asked the states to send their respective views on it by December 10," UP government spokesman and cabinet minister Siddharth Nath Singh said.

Uttar Pradesh has become the first state to give its nod to the proposal, which is to be introduced as a bill in the winter session of Parliament beginning next week, an official said.

There have been 177 reported cases of instant talaq before the judgement and 66 after the Supreme Court order this year and Uttar Pradesh tops the list.
