Lok Sabha Passes Triple Talaq Bill While The Opposition Stages Walkout
NEW DELHI: The bill for criminalizing instant ‘Triple Talaq’ was passed on Thursday, December 27, 2018, by the Lok Sabha. While passing it, the central government also rejected the contention that it was intended to target any specific community.
But surprisingly, the opposition, which was previously favouring the bill to be passed, staged a walkout which involved Congress, AIADMK, and RJD. The opposition made a walkout as the government rejected its demand to refer the bill to a joint select committee.
The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2018 had been passed by the Lower House. 245 were in favour while 11 opposed the legislation.
The passed bill will now go to the Rajya Sabha for the final approval. It will supersede the previous bill passed in the Lok Sabha and pending in the Rajya Sabha.
The now passed bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha on December 17, to make the practice of triple talaq among Muslims a penal offense, and also to replace an ordinance issued previously in September.
After the bill was passed, law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that there should be no politics on the bill, and also that it wasn’t targeting any particular community.
He urged the lawmakers of various parties to speak in one voice to support the legislation. “Don’t weigh the bill on the scales of politics. The bill is about humanity and justice.”
He also regretted that obstructions were being created by the opposition parties, because of the ‘vote bank politics’.
Under the proposed law (after the bill will be approved in Rajya Sabha), giving instant triple talaq will be termed as illegal and void. And it will directly mean a jail term of three years for the husband.
Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad also said that the bill has made the offense compoundable, implying that the case can be withdrawn if the man and his estranged wife reach a compromise and that only the wife and her close relatives can file an FIR, thus ruling out the law’s misuse.
He also mentioned that as many as 477 cases of triple talaq have been reported since January 2017, and also highlighted a case where a man gave talaq to his wife on Whatsapp.
Actor Ashutosh Rana backs Naseeruddin Shah
Despite being criticized for expressing his grief over the present national scenario, showing his concern for his children regarding the situations of mob violence, veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah is also getting support now in the voice of another actor Ashutosh Rana, who’s backing him, for what he said.
Last week, in an interview, Shah had said that there were places in the country where the death of a cow is given more importance than that of a policeman. “There is complete impunity for those who take law into their own hands,” he told. He directly referred to the killing of Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh who was mobbed, in UP’s Bulandshahr, by violent people and killed eventually, over the killing of cows.
He also added that he feels anxious for his children because tomorrow if a mob surrounds them and asks, ‘Are you a Hindu or a Muslim?’ they will have no answer. And it worries him that he doesn’t see the situation improving anytime soon.
Coming forward in support of his words, actor Ashutosh Rana said, “Everyone should have a right to share their thoughts with their friends or other people without any fear. If our brothers or friends say something, we should not just listen to them but also think about it.”
Continuing further, he also said that, “If someone is speaking his mind and there is a debate, will it improve the country’s economic situation.”
Following his words and his thoughts in the interview, actor Naseeruddin Shah’s addressing at Ajmer was also cancelled on Friday evening, after the protests by the right-wing groups, including Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha.
The actor was immediately targeted by the right-wing groups who even asked him to leave the country. The Navnirman Sena, in fact, booked him a one-way ticket to Pakistan.
After the killing of Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh in the Bulandshahr mob violence, on December 3, the UP Police administration is being constantly criticized and slammed for taking no relevant action; in fact, the culprits also have not been arrested yet.
83 Ex-Bureaucrats Demand U.P. CM Yogi Adityanath’s Resignation
After the heinous crime of Bulandshahr, two weeks ago, in which the mob lynched the Police Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh, around 83 retired bureaucrats have now written an open letter, demanding the resignation of current Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The letter signed includes the names of former secretaries like Shyam Saran, Sujatha Singh and Shiv Shankar Menon (former National Security Advisor), and other reputed names too.
They are straightly calling out for the resignation of the U.P. CM.
In the letter the bureaucrats said, “The mob violence in Bulandshahr, which led to the cold-blooded murder of a police officer marks the most dangerous turn yet in the direction taken by the politics of hate in recent times.”
“In UP, fundamental principles of governance, of constitutional ethics and of humane social conduct stand perverted. The Chief Minister acts as a high priest of the agenda of bigotry. Hooliganism and thuggery have been mainstreamed into governance. The murder of Subodh Kumar Singh was a deliberate attempt to display majoritarian muscle and send a message to the Muslim communities living in the region,” the letter by the bureaucrats told further.
It also said, “Our Prime Minister, who is so voluble in his election campaigns, maintains stony silence…Never before in recent history has the politics of hate, division and exclusion been so dominant and the poisonous ideology which informs it penetrated so deep into the body politic… Never before has hate been directed with such calculated intent against minority communities, hate which is nursed, aided and abetted by those in power…We demand the resignation of the Chief Minister.”
The bureaucrats also mentioned the point of ‘Rule of Law’, reminding the Chief Secretary, the Director General of Police, the Home Secretary and all other members of the higher civil services concerned, to implement it fearlessly in the state.
Shyam Saran, the former foreign secretary, also questioned the PM on the Bulandshahr incident that why he has kept himself silent so far, “Yes, I do not expect the PM to speak on each and every incident but is this like every other incident? Isn’t this instance somewhat different from your run of the wheel incidents that have happened in the past – which by the way also should be taken notice of.”
Shashikant Das appointed as the new RBI governor
NEW DELHI: After Urjit Patel quit from the post of RBI’s governor, due to personal reasons, just a day ago, the new face for the highest position has been appointed, very quickly. Shashikant Das is the new and overall 25th RBI governor of the country. The government, on Tuesday, appointed him as the next chief of the central bank of India.
Shashikant Das has been appointed for a tenure of three years; he had retired as economic affairs secretary in May 2017.
After a sudden stepping down of Urjit Patel as the RBI chief, the central government praised his work, and for his services.
“The government acknowledges with a deep sense of appreciation the services rendered by Dr. Urjit Patel to this country both in his capacity as the Governor and the deputy governor of the RBI. It was a pleasure for me to deal with him and benefit from his scholarship,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said.
PM Mr. Narendra Modi also thanked him via a Twitter post, saying that he brought ‘financial stability’ to the RBI.
The appointment of Shashikant Das, the new chief though, was done very quickly. It wasn’t the case in the past.

But the dissent of Dr. Patel became open when deputy governor Viral Acharya talked about the freedom of the central bank. He argued that any compromise could be ‘potentially catastrophic’ for the economy.
Although it’s not that this tussle between RBI governors and the government is only happening during the reign of BJP.

Some examples include Sir Osborne Smith (RB chief in 1935, in a pre-independence India), Sir Benegal Rama Rau (RBI chief from 1949-57), S Jagannathan (RBI chief in 1975), and Raghuram Rajan (RBI chief from 2013-16).
