New Delhi, Dec 31 (IBNS) : The revised bill to make instant Triple Talaq a punishable offence got stalled in Rajya Sabha on Monday after it was adjourned till January 2 following repeated uproars over the Congress demand for a select parliamentary committee for further scrutiny.

The bill, already passed by the Lok Sabha, faces a challenge in the upper house, where the government lacks the numbers. Triple Talaq, the practice of Muslim men to instantly divorce their wives by uttering "Talaq" thrice, was declared "unconstitutional" by the Supreme Court in a landmark judgment last year.

On Monday, Congress demanded the formation of a select committee to scrutinise the bill. But the government rejected the demand. The Trinamool Congress has moved a motion for reference of The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2018 to a Select Committee of Rajya Sabha.

Ahead of the session, the opposition party leaders met in the parliament building to finalise their strategy for the day and moved a resolution seeking that the bill be sent to a select committee for review.
