Triple Talaq Bill: Congress confused on triple talaq, says BJP's Naqvi

New Delhi, Jan 2: Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Tuesday attacked the Congress for its "confused" stand on the Triple Talaq Bill and wanted to know why it was sad while the Muslim women were happy. 

"These days a number of reforms are being brought in. The Triple Talaq Bill is one of them," the Minority Affairs Minister told reporters. 

"The Congress takes one step forward and then 10 steps backward. The party is confused on triple talaq," he said. "The Muslim women are happy, but I don't know why the Congress is sad," he added.

The Minister's remarks came just before the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017 was listed for consideration and passage in the Rajya Sabha, when the House meets after a three-day break.
