Fukrey returns actor Ali Fazal has expressed his dissent against banning Triple Talaq and commented on it on his official Twitter handle. The actor said; “What a trap this triple talaq bill is. Wow.. and nobody is consulted?!? I am not a lawmaker and even i follow the beebak collective and other groups. Atleast discuss.U send the husband into jail by criminalising it. Ure bak to square one. The family is again abandoned! Not CIVIL”. This tweet has been deleted from his Twitter handle.
However, in a follow up tweet, Ali Fazal added, “ok not surprised. Misunderstood. I am totally against it and very happy that there is a bill against such monsters. You see when a woman reports against it she wants to stay in matrimonial home. She wants to be able to draw finances from there. READ THIS! “ The Lok Sabha cleared a bill on Thursday which criminalises instant divorce with three years of imprisonment. The bill will be presented in Rajya Sabha in today but it might get delayed to Wednesday as the government is trying to build consensus on the bill.
