Triple Talaq debate should be between muslims who want reforms and those who don’t: PM Modi

Amid a legal battle between a section of Muslims and All Indian Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) on triple talaq, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday urged the political parties not to politicise the issue and said that all Muslim women have equal rights . He also termed triple talaq as an unfair practice.

Modi said, “It is the responsibility of the government and the people of the country to give justice to Muslim women under the Constitution.”

“Is it fair for a man to say ‘talaaq’ thrice over the phone and a Muslim woman’s life to be ruined? This issue shouldn’t be politicised,” said PM Modi at a rally in Mahoba (Uttar Pradesh).

“I request people who participate in TV debates to not make women rights a Muslim-Hindu issue. Women’s right is a development issue. The debate should be between Muslims who want reforms and those who do not want reforms,” he added.
