Moradabad (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Dec 29 (ANI): Hailing the passage of Triple Talaq Bill, a victim of the divorce practice on Friday said that the Lok Sabha by passing the bill has saved future of many women.

A resident of Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad Viraasha, told ANI that the bill will ensure justice.

"I want everyone, including myself to get justice. Now the future of so many women won't be destroyed, at least," Viraasha said.

Viraasha has alleged that her husband demanded dowry and later divorced her through Triple Talaq.

"My husband gave me Triple Talaq over dowry, he told me either get a car or Rs.10 lakh cash, if you can't I will leave you," said Viraasha.

Viraasha said, although she is uncertain about her own future, she is happy that the Trip Talaq Bill was passed in the Lok Sabha.

The bill making triple talaq illegal with up to three years in jail for the husband was passed with most of the leading parties in the Opposition, including the Congress party, voting in favour of the bill, but with caveats.

It was passed after the House rejected a string of amendments moved by various Opposition members.(ANI)
