Former Bihar minister Dr. Abdul Ghafoor also criticized the Triple Talaq bill saying it was not acceptable as it "took away freedom from the women". "It is unacceptable. The Muslim women are looking at Siddaramaiah for an answer", Kumar said.

Meanwhile, the passed bill will now be introduced in the Rajya Sabha for passage before it is forwarded to the President for signing it into a law.

Some felt that the BJP government was in a haste to pass the Bill not because of its concern for Muslim women but because it sees this as a first step towards bringing in a uniform civil code.

The bill was passed with most of the leading parties in the Opposition, including the Congress party, voting in favour of the bill, but with caveats.

"The BJP has brought this bill in a hurry to get political mileage and cause communal polarisation", he added. After the Supreme Court judgment regarding triple talaq there was absolutely no possibility nor need for such a Bill.

Responding to our report, Owaisi had said, "If this Bill becomes law then in future government can bring a simple amendment to set aside/make unconstitutional, Talaaq Ehsan and HASAN so whole goal is to deny Muslims to get married according to their religion". BJP Spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao tweeted, "To Appeasers' Alliance comprising Owaisi, RahulG, Mamata; Mulayam, Lalu: Stop communal politics! We have certain suggestions to solidify this law in order to protect the rights of these women", he said. Hindu Marriage Act has stronger provisions: "for 2nd marriage jail term is up to 7 years under IPC Section 494".

The fight against triple talaq was supported by the number of women after Shayara Bano case.

The Centre had sought the State government's comments on the draft Bill.

On the debates, Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad mentioned the case of a Rampur woman in the Parliament, after which a local panchayat asked her to observe "iddat" and "halala" as the couple made a decision to remarry.

India is one of the few countries that have left the Muslim laws intact despite the people's plea to adjust them.

Tamil Nadu also suggested making "necessary provision to provide one-time settlement of entitled amount to Muslim married women as per Shariat law" while concurring with the view that subsistence allowance should be paid to dependent children who have been affected by the talaq, besides granting the affected women custody of minor children.
