New Delhi, India – India’s lower house of parliament has passed a bill that seeks to criminalise “triple talaq”, a style of instant divorce used by some in the Muslim community despite the country’s top court suspending the practice in August.

The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights of Marriage) bill 2017, introduced by the Narendra Modi government in the lower house, or Lok Sabha, on Thursday, could see men found guilty of divorcing their wives through triple talaq end up in jail for three years.
