In another case in August, a murder convict allegedly gave triple talaq to his wife in the prison for not gifting him a new ‘kurta-pyjama’ on Eid. Several such cases continue to get reported every month inspite of the government taking a strong stand against it. In July, the government had last month passed the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019 that criminalises instant triple talaq.
