In a major success for Modi Govt, Parliament today approved a bill that makes instant triple talaq among Muslims a criminal offence after the contentious legislation was passed by Rajya Sabha following support from BJD and walkout by NDA allies JD-U and AIADMK. The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill was passed by 99 votes in favour and 84 against. On ‘The Big Story’, Aditya Raj Kaul discusses whether the passage of the Triple Talaq Bill is the biggest blow to opposition unity.
