Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the contentious issue of triple talaq should not view through a political prism.
Speaking on the occasion of Basava Jayanti at Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi, the PM also made an appeal to the Muslim community to come forward and solve the matter in order to protect women’s rights.
“Main Muslim samaaj se aagrah karunga ki triple talaq ke mudde ko rajneeti ke daayre mein mat aane dijiye. Aap log aake aakar iska samaadhan kijiye (I request Muslim society not to politicise the triple talaq issue. Rather, reformers from the (Muslim) community should come forward and solve the matter),” he said.
Further, he said that the NDA government will fight against the ‘suffering of Muslim daughters’ and will ‘work towards finding a solution’.
Modi also said that the history of India is not just about defeat, slavery and poverty. “India gave the message of good governance, non violence and Satyagraha”, Modi claimed.
