Fight for women rights stalled in Rajya Sabha as Congress opposes Triple Talaq Bill

The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017, or the Triple Talaq Bill was tabled in the Rajya Sabha even as the opposition stalled the proceedings of the House over the Maharashtra caste clashes. The Congress party, which had backed the bill in Lower House, changed their stance in Rajya Sabha creating a major ruckus which ultimately led to adjournment of the House till Thursday.
