Do you think the govt should fight for 'equality' and 'dignity' of Muslim women?

    Layman's question

    I vaguely remember that ordinance is passed as a temporary thing right (expires in 6 weeks if I remember correctly). Only bills are permanent. Though Ordinance can be extended many times

    Ordinance is passed to buy time to pass the bill.

    I thought the bill was passed in 2017 itself.

    What did I miss!?

    I know that Supreme Court can put stay order on Ordinance, can they remove the bill also!?

    Sunni Muslim Group is expecting that this is going to stay in court similar to other long cases which took decades and yet they didn't solve.

    Ordinance lasts for 6 MONTHS.

    Yes. It was passed in lower house / Lok Sabha. For it to become a bill, it has to pass in upper house / Rajya Sabha as well. Unfortunately, muzzie appeasing parties are opposing there.

    Supreme Court itself gave a judgement that Triple Talaq was unconstitutional. SC then gave the instructions to center to pass it as a law formally.

    BAREILLY: A woman in

    Bareilly
    was forced to perform the ritual of 'nikah-halala' with her father-in-law after her husband gave her instant triple talaq. The matter came to light on Tuesday during the hearing of a maintenance case that the woman had filed against her husband after he divorced her again in 2017 and was forcing her to perform

    halala
    with his brother.


    The victim's sister stated in her affidavit filed in the court of Judge Ajay Singh that her sister was married to a resident of Qila, on July 5, 2009.


    "After her marriage, two years went well but my sister's husband and in-laws started torturing her as she couldn't give birth to any child. They started calling her sterile and would keep her without food for several days. Beating up my sister over petty issues had been a routine. On several occasions, my sister faced sexual abuse by her husband," she stated in the affidavit.


    According to case details, the woman was first divorced on December 15, 2011. But when her family requested her husband to reconsider his decision, he agreed on the condition that she would have to undergo 'halala' with his father.


    "When my sister refused to undergo 'halala', her in-laws forcibly administrated

    sedative
    injection on her and completed the ritual with her father in-law. For next 10 days, the elderly man raped my sister and gave her triple talaq so that she could remarry her husband. But, in January 2017, he again divorced my sister and then the family started pressing her to undergo 'halala' with her husband's younger brother," she said. It was then that the family moved family court for maintenance. The court has fixed February 15 for the next hearing in the case.


    An FIR under sections 498A (dowry), 377 (unnatural sex), 376 (rape), 323 (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 328 (causing hurt by means of

    poison
    with intent to commit an offence), 511 (punishment for attempting to commit offences punishable with imprisonment for life), 120B (punishment of criminal conspiracy) of IPC has already been lodged against halala victim's husband and other in-laws at Qila police station.
