Here’s How Twitterati Reacted After The Government Declared Triple Talaq As Criminal Offense:There has been heated debates about the matter of triple talaq for a long time. Every time there has been huge controversy regarding the matter. Recently, the Union Government declared it as a criminal offense and it has caused contradictory reactions.

Twitter went crazy after the verdict was given as some celebrated in joy while some doubted the move.

On the first day of the Winter Session of Parliament, this topic was raised again. The bill was cleared by the government which marked the instant triple talaq or talaq-e-biddat as a crime.

Before this, victims of the act couldn’t seek any help from the law of the country. They couldn’t protect their basic rights.

However, this bill is an improvement as the proposed law would ensure that the victim can approach a magistrate seeking “subsistence allowance” for herself and minor children.

This is step towards the correct path as it ensures rights of the victims. This directive of the government has got positive reviews from almost everyone. Twitterati loved and appreciated this bold move by the government.

They said that Narendra Modi led government has taken the initiative to make this a non-bailable criminal offense. Muslim women who have been getting treated as cattle for centuries, must feel protected by this move. Some even went on to say that human rights were protected by this move.

This decision by the government is a welcome decision. However strict laws need to be implemented so that these rights are properly protected. Our society in general will improve by taking these positive steps.
