As the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill 2017 was tabled in the Parliament on Thursday, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi opposed the Bill.

Taking to twitter he wrote, "I have given a Notice to oppose the introduction of Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage Bill) 2017 under rule 72 in Lok Sabha."

He also tweeted out the pictures of the notice. In the notice he mentioned that his objections to the Bill are twofold: firstly, the Parliament lacks legislative competence to initiate such legislation on the grounds that it violates Fundamental Rights; and secondly, that this Bill lacks basic legal coherence and is inconsistent with legal framework. Owaisi also elaborated on his objections over the Bill in his notice.
Earlier on December 15, when the Union Cabinet cleared Triple Talaq Bill, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi had written to Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad opposing the Triple Talaq Bill. In the letter Owaisi called the government's move 'regrettable'.
