Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Attacking the government over triple talaq and uniform civil code, TMC MP Sultan Ahmed today accused the of trying to infringe into the fundamental and religious rights of Muslims and stir up communal passion in the country.

Ahmed said the should leave it to the Muslim community of the country to decide on the issue of triple talaq.



"This will be a disastrous decision to take for the secular and pluralistic fabric of our country," Ahmed told PTI.

Asked about the legibility of triple talaq for Muslim women, Ahmed, a prominent minority face of the TMC, said, "It is a religious issue of the Muslims and only they can decide on it."

Ahmed said that the matter of trying to interfere in triple Talaq and uniform civil code would come up in the the All Muslim Personal Board's three-day triennial convention in starting from November 18.

Ahmed wondered if the government was really so concerned about the condition of Muslim women it should create jobs for them, higher education facilities and facilitate social empowerment.

"But the will not address those issues as it has only this triple talaq issue to address," he said.

For the first time in India's constitutional history, the Centre on October 7 had opposed in the Supreme Court the practice of triple talaq, 'nikah halala' and polygamy among Muslims and favoured a relook on grounds like gender equality and secularism.
