New Delhi:

Amid the ongoing raging debate on triple talaq in Muslims, NCP general secretary Tariq Anwar on Friday said that the issue should be left to the Supreme Court to decide.

“Let  SC decide on triple talaq,” he told reporters here. Anwar is a Lok Sabha MP from Katihar, and supports abolition of the practice of triple talaq. As Anwar says, several Muslim countries have done away with the practice and it does not have the sanction of Quran and the Hadith.

According to Anwar, the Constitution and the judiciary are the appropriate forums to settle this issue of triple talaq. The All India Muslim Personal Board (AIMPB) has been opposing any move to abolish the practice of triple talaq, citing that it will be an infringement on the personal law governing the minority community.

On the strife in Jammu and Kashmir, Anwar blamed the ruling PDP-BJP coalition government for the ‘mess’ in the border state. He also said that the people felt cheated in the manner the state government has handled the law and order situation there.

“A piquant situation prevails in Jammu and Kashmir as there is a coalition government comprising two parties (PDP and BJP) with neither having the mandate of the people to be in power,” Anwar said.

On surgical strikes, he said the credit went entirely to the armed forces for destroying terror camps across the border while ridiculing the present government for taking credit for the surgical strikes.
