The government had last month passed the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019 that criminalises instant triple talaq. Infact, on a day when the country was celebrating the law against triple talaq, a man in Moradabad district of Uttar Pradesh announced triple talaq to his wife on a road after he got into an altercation with his wife.
A video surfaced on the social media in which the man can be seen fighting with his wife's brother. The reason for the fight was not known.
