New Delhi, July 31

Union Law and Justice Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today said the law against instant triple talaq was working and achieving the intended goals, as the government data has revealed that there has been a sharp decline in the incidences of such cases since the legislation was enacted a year ago.

Talking to The Tribune, the minister, who piloted the “Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act-2019” in Parliament, said, “If the number of cases of instant triple talaq is declining, it means that that the law is achieving the intended goals.”

Marking the completion of one year of the enactment of the “Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act”, Prasad reiterated his assertion that instant triple talaq “is nothing about religion, rather it is mainly about gender justice, gender equality and gender empowerment”.

As per government data, which is based on the feedback received from waqf boards, minority commissions and the local administration, as against 3,82,964 cases of the triple talaq between 1985 and 2019, which comes to an average of 11,263 incidents per year, only 1,039 incidence of such act were reported in the past one year since the law was enacted.
