Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Saturday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not addressing other issues of Muslim women after the PM asked the Muslim community to come forward to find out solution of Triple Talaq.
He said the PM should also talk about the Muslim women who are losing their husband and son during violence by cow vigilantes.
Congress leader Mallikarjun Khadge said the PM remarks do not hold any significance as he made the statements eyeing upcoming Karnataka assembly polls.
Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed Muslims not to view the triple talaq issue from a political perspective and expressed the confidence that efforts to end the practice would be led by “enlightened” members of the community.
At a function to mark the Basava Jayanti celebrations in honour of Kannada philosopher Basaveswara, Modi referred to the 12th century reformer’s movement against regressive practices to speak about triple talaq.
“I appeal to you not to view the triple talaq issue from a political perspective. Come out and find a solution. That solution will have its own majesty and generations will remember you,” he said.
