PM Narendra Modi-led central government on Wednesday cleared the promulgation of the Triple Talaq ordinance which criminalises the practice of verbal divorce among Muslim men. The Ordinance will now be sent to President Ram Nath Kovind for his signature which will finally result in the poromulgation of the ordinance into a law. Once implemented, the law will stand for six months within which it will have to be brought back to parliament for legislative approval. With the six-month period coming to an end in March 2019, which will be election time, both Congress and the BJP will be cautious on their stand on the issue as it may have a direct impact on the poll outcome.
