    Lok Sabha Clears Bill to Criminalise Instant Triple Talaq after Opposition Walkout
    The Lok Sabha on Thursday gave its nod to a bill which seeks to penalise the practice of instant triple talaq by a voice vote. Several amendments to the legislation, moved by the Opposition, were defeated, with the government asserting that the law was required as hundreds of such cases have come to the fore despite Supreme Court striking down the practice. A move by the Opposition to stall the bill at the time of its consideration was rejected by a division vote of 303 for and 82 against.
