Triple Talaq should not be seen with the perspective of religion but 'reform', says Centre

'Those who are trying to give Triple Talaq a communal angle, they should understand that improvement is necessary for the society'

The Centre on Sunday launched a scathing at political leaders for politicising the issue of Triple Talaq while saying that the matter should not be seen with the perspective of religion but ‘reform’.

“Triple Talaq issue is not a matter of communalism. It should not be seen with the perspective of religion but reform. Those who are trying to give it a communal angle, they should understand that improvement is necessary for the society,” Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told ANI.

Reiterating Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assertion of not politicising the Triple Talaq matter, he further said the society needs to improve and creating any kind of hindrance is not called for.

Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Sitaram Yechury yesterday asked Prime Minister Modi to not only express concern about the plight of ‘Muslim Sisters’ but also about widows of his Parliamentary Constituency, Varanasi.

Addressing a programm, Yechury took a dig at Prime Minister Modi’s concern about Muslim women, who are victims of triple talaq.

“If the Prime Minister is really sympathetic towards women then why is he not talking about the widows of his constituency?” questioned Yechury.

Questioning why are widows not allowed to remarry, Yechury said the largest number of widows in the world who are not allowed to remarry are in the Prime Minister’s constituency.

Prime Minister Modi had earlier appealed to the Muslim community to find for proper solution to end the controversial practice of Triple Talaq.

Addressing the Basva festival, Prime Minister Modi told media, “I believe people from Muslim community would come up to solve the issue of triple talaq and act as savior to the Muslim women in this crucial period.”
