Don't equate triple talaq with Uniform Civil Code, says BJP

ANI  |  Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India] 

Urging the All Muslim Personal Board (AIMPLB) not to equate the issue of triple talaq with the implementation of the Uniform Civil Code, the (BJP) said the code is not limited to a particular religion or ideology, it's about one for every citizen aiming to bring justice to all and appeasement to none.

"Triple talaq is not limited to only a certain section of women, there have been lakhs of Muslim women that have filed potion s in Supreme Court citing that 22 countries like Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Pakistan, all have done away with this defunct act. We talk about women's equality, women's respect and on the other hand we say talaq talq talaq on the telephone or the social media and do away with the marriage. I think we have to understand distinction between triple talaq and Uniform Civil Code," leader Shaina NC told ANI.

The BJP's outreach comes a day after Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu asked the Muslim board not to politicize and added that it was high time that all communities to come together and uphold the dignity of women irrespective of their religion.

Naidu also urged the AIMPLB not to unnecessarily drag Prime Minister Narendra Modi's name into the matter.

"Some people are trying to confuse the issue of triple talaq with Uniform Civil Code. About the issue of triple talaq, the Commission wanted views of all. The religious workers, the social workers, sociologists, prominent public personalities, they need to acknowledge the basic principle of equality of all human beings men or women and work in that direction instead of misleading the people," Naidu said.

The All Muslim Personal Board (AIMPLB) has been defending the triple talaq system and termed the filing of the affidavit as 'un-islamic.'

They claim that triple talaq is a personal and the Centre has no right to modify it.
