Long thread about what transpired in the Lok Sabha today. Please bear with me.

I opposed the 'anti-women and unconstitutional' #TripleTalaq Bill moved by the @BJP4India government in Lok Sabha today. Here is the full video:
1. The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019 violates Articles 14, 15, 21, 26 and 29.
2. The Bill says that the marriage would be legal even if a man gives triple talaq (talaq-e-biddat) to his wife, and would get three years in jail.

On Thursday, #LokSabha passed the contentious #TripleTalaqBill criminalizing instant #talaq (divorce) by #Muslim men, with a jail term of up to three years for the husband. In this THREAD I try to break down different scenarios for you to understand its consequences:
Consider the following different scenarios when a Husband pronounces Triple Talaq instantly:

1) An intoxicated or/and angry husband pronounces 3 talaqs at one go. He later realises his follies and seeks fatwa from ulama as the couple want to stay together
(laughable as it may appear, this is often the case).

Hanafi Fiqh says instant triple talaq will dissolve the marriage, others, most notably Salafis disagree. Now SC too affirmed that instant TT will not annul the marriage.

Reminder thread on #TripleTalaq:
How is anyone supposed to stall a bill if it was not brought into the Rajya Sabha for two sessions?

And now they've passed it as an Ordinance. Whattay joke.
Here's a screenshot from the Official Lok Sabha website on status of the Bill (RS Website is down right now).

And one from @PRSLegislative about the same.
Hasn't even been introduced in the Rajya Sabha yet.
If you want more clarity on how Bill are passed in Parliament (Introduction, Consideration, Voting and Passing), I'm going to leave this here.

Then you decide what the heck is *really* going on.

@amishra77 @virsanghvi This was the strategy of the outliers for a long time:
1) Moghuls became Indians and Indians became Kafirs
2) Nehru-Khan-Maino became Gandhi and Indians became fools
3)Muslims became Kashmiris and #KashmiriPandits became refugees

@indiantweeter
@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 4) Bangladeshis became #Bengalis and Bengalis couldn't celebrate #DurgaPuja in soon to be #WestBangladesh
5) Those who are intolerant of #Hindus became #Secular and the real seculars became #Sanghi terrorists
@amishra77 @virsanghvi @indiantweeter 6) The #Maoists and #UrbanNaxals became Intellectuals and the Intellectuals became #Bakhts
7) Terrorists became 'poor-sons-of-headmasters' who killed/beheaded army men and the army became human rights violators who used pellet guns on these peaceful terrorists. @adgpi
