MP  Asaduddin Owaisi expressed his dissatisfaction and disagreement with the Triple Talaq Bill and said that the passing of the bill was not really beneficial to women. Owaisi said that the bill was unconstitutional because the Muslim men who are violators will be punished for 3 years while non- Muslims will only be punished for a year for a similar offence. The Triple Talaq Bill is supported by many Muslim women and they feel it gives them a sense of control and their husbands a sense of responsibility towards their wives.  Owaisi said that the offenders would be in jail and they cannot provide for their wives thereby making is not beneficial to women. However, the law is, in fact, empowering to a woman whose husband leaves her without a proper and legal divorce which will enable her to demand maintenance. It is also to be noted that even if the punishment period for Muslim men is reduced to 1 year, Owaisi and the Opposition would continue to criticise it.

In 1989-90, with Rajiv Gandhi as PM and Farooq Abdullah as CM, 400,000 Kashmiri Pandits, Sikhs & Others FACED GENOCIDE - were slaughtered or forced to leave Kashmir overnight. "The Kashmir Files" shows only a small part of this. Should a Kashmir Genocide Law be made and the atrocities be fully investigated?

आपकी राय

1989-90 में, राजीव गांधी के प्रधान मंत्री और फारूक अब्दुल्ला के मुख्यमंत्री के रूप में, 400,000 कश्मीरी पंडितों, सिखों और अन्य लोगों को नरसंहार का सामना करना पड़ा - या तो रातों-रात कश्मीर छोड़ने के लिए मजबूर होना पड़ा । "द कश्मीर फाइल्स" इसका एक छोटा सा हिस्सा ही दिखाता है। क्या कश्मीर में हुए नरसंहार पर कानून बनाया जाना चाहिए और अत्याचारों की पूरी जांच होनी चाहिए?
