Triple talaq has been a matter of concern since quite a few years now. After 62 celebrities who came in support of Muslim Women Protection Bill (2019) including Kangana Ranaut and Prasoon Joshi, the newest name in list is of Pakistani Actress Veena Malik.
Pakistani actress Veena Malik who earlier opposed Indian Government on border issues between India and Pakistan including air strike, she has now wholeheartedly supported the bill introduced by Modi Government. Significantly, Instant Triple Talaq has already been banned in 22 muslim countries including Pakistan where a man can divorce his wife by saying ‘talaq’ to her three times continuously..
Veena Malik who is a mother of 2 sons, is also going through her divorce case. Her research for ‘Divorce under Shari’ah law’ lead her to completely support Indian Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019.
The triple talaq bill has been passed by both houses of the parliament with complete majority making instant triple talaq a crime with 3 years of imprisonment. On one hand where the muslim women are celebration government’s decision, the opposition on the other hand is in constant turf with the Government regarding the same.
