The Bill dubbed the Muslim Women Protection of Rights on Marriage Bill will also accommodate for there to be fines and jail time of up to three years for the guilty party. Talaq was deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in August but the act has since continued and many say there needs to be a harsher sentence for men who choose to participate in this unconstitutional behavior.

The court ruled 3-2 in their favor, and labeled it “un-Islamic”.

Instant divorce is currently banned in 22 countries including Pakistan and Bangladesh and the 5 women who petitioned the Supreme court to declare Talaq unconstitutional believe since a woman and man enter a marriage as a legally binding contract that they both agree to; when one party decides to leave the marriage the other should be protected legally; in many cases the woman being instantly divorced (Talaq).
