New Delhi: The Congress may oppose a proposed legislation criminalising instant triple talaq if it is in violation of a Supreme Court judgement on the matter, party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said on Friday.

He said the party would support the bill if it was within the Supreme Court’s verdict.

 

“If, however, the Act or the Bill seeks to violate and transgress the limits of that Supreme Court judgement, we may well have to do a rethink and let us see that,” he said.

He said the party was yet to see the content of the proposed legislation, which is yet to be made available in Parliament.

“Any bill which seeks to criminalise human action, which is what this bill is supposed to be doing, must be within the four corners of the five judgements written in that case,” he told reporters.

A draft law which seeks to make the practice of instant triple talaq “illegal and void” and provides for a jail term for the husband was cleared by the union cabinet on Friday.
