Modi urges Muslims not to politicise triple talaq
Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday urged the Muslim community not to “politicise” the triple talaq issue and requested them to come forward and find a “solution”.
“I urge the people of the Muslim community not to “politicise” the triple talaq issue and I request them to come forward and find a “solution”, Modi said, while speaking on the occasion of Basava Jayanti.
The Prime Minister also assured that he would fight against the sufferings of the Muslim daughters in the country.
“It is the strength of our country’s soil that people from the (Muslim) community will emerge to save our mothers and sisters from this trouble,” he said, referring to the practice of triple talaq.
“My government will bring an end to this archaic law,” he added.
Modi had earlier raised the triple talaq issue during the national executive meeting of his party in Bhubaneswar.
