In the Rajya Sabha, less than a week later, the Opposition came together to make this demand much more forcefully.

Having said that, in the specific case the real reason why the Opposition is dragging its feet on passing the triple talaq Bill is that, true to type, it is keen to appease the conservative lobby among the Muslims, which essentially controls the community's dominant narrative. Neither the Government nor the Opposition backed off from their respective demands - the former pressing to get the Bill cleared by the Upper House, the insisting it be referred to a select committee.

"The Opposition obstructed the (OBC Commission) Bill with a meaningless amendment in the Rajya Sabha". The upper house has been adjourned multiple times this week over the bill that was briefly discussed in the house. The first, is the argument made mainly by the Left parties that instant triple talaq is a civil matter which is being criminalised.
With no consensus on the bill even today, it's likely that the bill would be moved to the next session of the Parliament.
