Jamida, who became the first female imam in India's history to lead the Juma prayers, said on Monday that despite receiving criticism she would continue her struggle to end triple talaq and achieve equal rights for women.
"I will continue my struggle to end triple talaq and bring women into the mainstream," Jamida told ANI.
She further said those who have been criticising her, have been doing so without logic and hence were abusing and targeting her personally.
Jamida, the 34-year-old state secretary of the Quran Sunnath Society, became the first female imam in India's history to lead Friday prayers on January 26.
She led the Friday afternoon special prayer session at a mosque in Kerala's Malappuram district.
