Govt asks parties not to politicize issue of Triple Talaq

AMN /

MuslimWomenInformation and Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu has requested all political parties not to politicize the issue of Triple Talaq. Talking to media outside Parliament this morning, Mr Naidu said every stakeholder is being considered by the Law Commission in this regard. He said Muslim women should have equal rights in the society.

The Minister was responding to media queries after Law Minister Ravishankar Prasad said that the government may take a major decision to ban triple talaq after assembly polls. Mr Naidu said political parties should not link the remarks made by Mr Prasad with the ongoing elections.

Echoing similar views, Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, the decision will only be taken within Constitutional framework.

Yesterday Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the Centre might take “a major step” to ban triple talaq after the ongoing Assembly polls,
He said the tradition of triple talaq denies respect for women and the central government is committed to end the “evil social practice”.

“The government may take a major step to ban triple talaq after the UP Assembly polls,” he said while addressing a press conference in Ghaziabad last evening. The Assembly polls being held in UP and four other states will conclude on March 11.

Asserting that “every pernicious practice” cannot be part of a religion, the minister, who is a lawyer himself, said the Centre would raise the issue in the Supreme Court on three points — justice, equality and dignity of women.
