The contentious bill that would criminalise instant triple talaq was passed by the Lok Sabha today. The battle over the bill -- which provides for a jail term for Muslim men who can get an instant divorce by uttering "Talaq" thrice -- raged through the day. But given the government's numbers, the bill had a safe passage, even though ally Nitish Kumar's Janata Dal United walked out during the debate, contending that the new law would create a "lack of trust in the society".
