The Bill proposes a three-year jail term and a monetary fine for a Muslim husband who divorces his wife using talaq-ul-biddat.

The Indian cabinet has backed a bill that will make the Islamic practice of instant divorce a criminal offence.

"We welcome this, it was much needed.Unlike previous governments, this government cares for rights of Muslim women".

The Supreme Court paved the way for the proposed bill after it ruled in August that it was unconstitutional to allow men invoke triple talaq - the practice of repeating the word "talaq", or "divorce", three times to annul one's marriage.

Other countries with large Muslim populations, including Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, have already banned triple talaq.

The government is expecting that the approved bill will be passed during the ongoing winter session of the Parliament.

According to News18, the bill not only criminalises instant triple talaq but also talks about compensation for the women and their children.
