Congress kerala unit president M M Hassan has gone back on his stand that he opposed the triple talaq bill brought by the BJP-led central government.

The bill, if implemented into a law, will make Triple Talaq a criminal offense.

Ahead of the introduction of the bill in the Rajya Sabha today, the opposition parties are slated to meet today morning to decide the course of action on the bill.

Hundreds of Muslim women will assemble at the residence of Minister of State (MoS) Vijay Goel on Sunday to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the triple talaq bill.

The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017, which seeks to criminalise the practise of instant triple talaq is scheduled to be introduced in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.

Priest asks for prayers for victims of Bronx fire and their families
Neighborhood resident Robert Gonzalez, who has a friend who lives in the building, says she got out on a fire escape. They were trying to come out to the stairs and he stopped them. "Then he went in and tried to rescue people out".

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar said that the government was in talks with Congress party for smooth passage of the legislation, which was passed by Lok Sabha last week.

The proposed law, which stipulates up to three years of jail and a penalty for violators, was passed amidst concern from Opposition members that it was criminalising what was essentially a civil procedure, and that it could be misused.

However, owing to the lack of a majority of the government in the Rajya Sabha, there are chances that the Bill may be impeded or blocked. "Let it go for reconsideration to Select Committee", says NCP leader Majeed Memon. "When it comes to Rajya Sabha, we will demand that it should be sent to the Select Committee", he said.

This bill gives power to the victim to approach a magistrate seeking "subsistence allowance" for herself and minor children in the case of instant triple talaq or talaq-e- biddat.
