Stalemate continues in the Rajya Sabha as far as the passage of triple Talaq bill is concerned. The bill was not tabled on the final day of the monsoon session and has now been deferred to the winter session. The bill was stalled in the Rajya Sabha amid protests by the opposition. The provision of bail was one of the biggest sticking points. In the tweaked version passed by the union cabinet, the offence would stay non-bailable but a judge can decide whether to grant bail after hearing the wife. The Muslim women protection of rights bill 2018 will now have a clause that would ensure Muslim husbands have a right to approach the court seeking bail, after arrest on the charges of instant Talaq.
