Muslim women are getting the freedom to raise voices for their rights under the Modi regime, BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj said today. "It is a good sign that Muslim women are demanding their rights, especially on the triple talaq issue, under the Modi regime.
Since the women from the community also voted for Modi, it is the moral duty of the BJP to provide them relief," he told reporters here. "I have always been criticised for raising the plight of Muslim women. But now, even the members of the community are awakening to this reality," he said. Lauding Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for his style of functioning, the controversial parliamentarian said the joint efforts of Mayawati, Akhilesh Yadav and Rahul Gandhi could not deviate the CM from his mission of "developing UP". He also hit out at the critics of the state government's"anti-Romeo squads". "Why are the critics of anti-Romeo squads silent on stone pelting in Kashmir and the atrocities committed on Hindus in Kerala and West Bengal?" he asked.
