Accusing the Congress of doing injustice to the Muslim women, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar on Friday said that the opposition should learn from history and let the Triple Talaq Bill pass. "They are not thinking about ensuring justice to the Muslim sisters. They are doing injustice the same way they did in the Shah-Bano case," Kumar said.

Condemning the Congress's demand to refer the bill to the Select Committee, Kumar said: "Everyday they bring a new excuse and their demand to refer the bill to the Select Committee is just a trick to misguide all. I condemn this.

"The Congress should learn from history and allow the Triple Talaq Bill to pass."

The BJP leader's remarks came as the deadlock over the bill in the Rajya Sabha continued on Thursday with the government rejecting the opposition's insistence on sending the bill to the Select Committee for detailed scrutiny.
