"In the summer of 1947, during partition, several people were massacred. 37 years later Delhi was the wit- Sajjan Kumar ness of a similar tragedy. The accused enjoyed political patronage and escaped trial," the court had said while awarding life sentence to Kumar. Over 2700 Sikhs were murdered in Delhi in what the court called a "carnage of unbelievable proportions". Meanwhile, the 73-year-old former Congress leader has already approached the Supreme Court ﬁling an appeal against the High Court verdict. He had also sought an additional 30 days to surrender to sort out family matters.

With the government pressing for a discussion on the Muslim women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) bill, 2018 after Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad tabled the same, the Opposition stuck to its demand for sending the bill to a select committee. Amid a stalemate between the government and the opposition over the issue, the House failed to transact any signiﬁcant business during the day. The House was adjourned for the day amid din over the issue. Earlier, the House was adjourned twice during the day with an adjournment in the morning following protests by AIADMK members over the Cauvery issue. The House also saw another brief adjournment of 15 minutes in the afternoon soon after the Triple Talaq Bill was tabled. Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad said the bill was very crucial and requires further scrutiny and claimed that more than half of the members belonging to several parties have demanded that the bill be sent to a select committee. He accused the government of breaking the tradition of sending bills to select committees for scrutiny before they become a law. Union Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Vijay Goel said the government was ready for a discussion on the issue and accused the Congress of creating hurdles in the passage of the legislation.

"All of them are three Ms, like three Ds," he observed. In his view, the KCR is middle Modi and Jagan is Jr. Modi, as explained by him a day before.

You would be doing a great service to people if you do," he said, lacing his comments in heavy sarcasm.

She said that instead of offering a reprieve to Muslim women, the bill would adversely affect domestic life. The Centre has been looking to push the Triple Talaq Bill in Parliament by calling it a humane move even as the opposition remains determined to block its passage. Mufti too joined the chorus against the bill and questioned its practical implications. "By bringing the Triple Talaq Bill, they (BJP) are entering our houses. This will disturb our family life and also, there would be more problems for women and men economically," she was quoted as saying by news agency ANI. "I have gone through a broken marriage and I feel that women face the biggest challenge economically after her marriage is broken." Mufti, who was the CM of J&K till her PDP and BJP were in alliance, also raked up the issue of reservation for Muslims. "When we talk about reservations for Muslims, BJP rejects it on religious lines. But when it comes to this kind of law, then they run to Parliament."
