New Delhi, Jan 2: The Sharad Pawar-led NCP on Tuesday suggested that the much talked about Triple Talaq Bill be sent to the Select Committee of the Rajya Sabha as it was "brought in hurry".

"Heaven will not fall.......," NCP MP Majeed Memon told TV channels. "These are sensitive matters, we should not repent in future," he said.

He said the government seemed to have brought the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017 in hurry."Why they did not consult all stake holders...why this was done secretly," he said.

The Lok Sabha has passed the bill on December 28.
