Hav­ing missed the op­por­tu­nity of get­ting the Mus­lim Women (Pro­tec­tion of Rights on Mar­riage) Bill 2018, passed in the Ra­jya Sabha after it was passed by the Lok Sabha, the Cen­tre has re-pro­mul­gated the or­di­nance that bans in­stant triple ta­laq.

The Na­tional Demo­cratic Al­liance gov­ern­ment pro­jected this leg­is­la­tion as a land­mark one aimed at em­pow­er­ing mil­lions of Mus­lim women who were vic­tims of in­stant triple ta­laq. The next sit­ting of Par­lia­ment, the fi­nal one of the

16th Lok Sabha, is ten­ta­tively sched­uled be­tween Jan­uary 31 and Fe­bru­ary

13, when the Cen­tral gov­ern­ment is likely to present its in­terim Bud­get.
