One of the rationales behind the Supreme Court judgment of banning instant triple talaq was that it doesn't leave any scope for reconciliation.
The organisation which flagged this issue three years ago, the Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andholan (BMMA), were shown on television screens distributing candies when this draconian law was passed in the Lok Sabha.

Opposition parties believe that the primary aim of the bill is for the BJP to increase its support among Muslims by appealing to the women in the community. He added: "The government did not hold proper discussions before tabling the bill". "It is a civil matter".
Maulana Abbas, however, said that the practice should be made a criminal offence. But the major bone of contention in the bill is the criminalisation of triple talaq.
"There is a greater consensus within the country that there should be a stringent law, preventive mechanism to give protection to Muslim women".
The opposition members were firm in their stand that they are ready to support the cause but the bill is faulty and needs a second look.

The parliamentary affairs minister said the government may table the bill in Rajya Sabha tomorrow. I want justice for all women. The repercussions will be worse. The ruling came in response to a petition filed by Muslim women's groups and victims of triple talaq and was hailed as a huge victory for India's 90 million Muslim women.
"There is no question of us not standing by anything that empowers women. We want to ensure the Bill goes through legislative scrutiny". The Congress has traditionally been seen as a supporter of conservative Muslim religious leadership; for its new image, to gain confidence of the Hindus, it needs to be seen as taking a distance from issues concerning the Muslim community. Talks on the model Nikhanama had begun 20 years ago. Many of the Islamic scholars opine that pronouncing it instantly three times will be counted as saying it only once. This is a social reform.
