New Delhi: The contentious Triple Talaq Bill which criminalises the practice of instant “talaq” could not be taken up for discussion and passage on the last day of Monsoon session on Friday, owing to lack of consensus among political parties on the issue. The Congress-led Opposition has been demanding that the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017 be sent to a Select Committee for further scrutiny.

The BJP-led government, which does not have a majority in the Upper House, had also made efforts to get the bill cleared in the Budget Session also. On Friday, when the Rajya Sabha reconvened at 2:30 pm after two adjournments in the pre-lunch session, Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu said he has decided that the bills “on which there is some sort of broad consensus” will be taken up for discussion and passage later. Naidu also clarified that the bill will not be taken up on Friday as a consensus has not yet been evolved on the issue.
