The much debated Triple Talaq Bill, which aims to criminalise instant divorce among Muslims, could not be tabled in Rajya Sabha on Friday as the Congress-led Opposition continued to insist on discussion on Rafale  fight jet deal first. 



Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu told the Upper House of Parliament that the Muslim Women Protection of Rights on Marriage Bill could not be tabled as there was a lack of consensus between the Government and Opposition over it.
