Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Saturday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that BJP is politicizing the issue to create a new vote bank.
While talking to media persons, Azad said that the saffron party is trying to take and advantage by coming between Muslim couple to create a new vote bank. He alleged that BJP and its mentor RSS can do such politics.
The Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha said no Muslim believes in triple talaq and the practice is adhered to as per the holy book in which certain norms and time-frame have been laid.
Azad said BJP is unnecessarily making the statements while the society and court are looking into the matter.
"When the society is already discussing this issue of triple talaq and the court is looking into it, then why is the BJP unnecessarily coming in between Muslim women and their Muslim husbands. The BJP should not make attempts at creating a new vote bank," he told reporters.
Asked about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement today urging Muslims not to view the issue of triple talaq from political perspective, he alleged that it was the Prime Minister who was politicising the issue.
