Triple talaq bill: Is it about politics or protecting women?

A fresh bill to outlaw the Muslim practice of a man divorcing his wife instantly by uttering "talaq" thrice, which got stalled in the upper house of parliament and lapsed, was introduced in the Lok Sabha today. The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019 will replace an ordinance issued in February by the previous BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government. The bill had failed to clear the Rajya Sabha test earlier. While the opposition says it is a discriminatory bill the government claims the Supreme Court's order banning the controversial Islamic practice needs to be followed up with a strong law.
