AMID A raging debate on triple talaq, RSS on Friday said it was opposed to any injustice on the basis of gender. For the first time in India’s constitutional history, the Centre 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. The Centre’s stand has created ripples with Opposition parties claiming that the issue is being raised before the Uttar Pradesh elections to polarise the electorate on religious lines.

Talking to mediapersons in Lucknow, Prabhu Narayan, RSS’s Awadh Prant sanghchalak, said that though the issue of triple talaq has been raised by Muslim women who have moved court, RSS believes that “no one should face injustice because of his gender”. “We believe everyone must get respect and equality,” he added.

Prabhu Narayan, along with sah prant karyavah Narendra were speaking to mediapersons about the Sangh’s Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal meeting in Hyderabad.

To a question on building Ram temple in Ayodhya, Narayan said Sangh had never led the Ram temple campaign nor will it do so in future. “Sangh supported the demand of sants and people on the issue. We still support their demand and want the temple to be constructed. But we don’t raise any demands. It is to be done by sants,” he added.

Narayan further said that the RSS has been working to remove social evils like untouchability and social discrimination. “Balasaheb Deoras (former RSS sarsanghchalak) had said that if untouchability is not a crime, then nothing else can be a crime. We are working for the integration of the society. We are also telling people that untouchability is a crime and the use of religious texts to justify discrimination is wrong,” he added.

Narendra said RSS will soon start a campaign to resolve any disputes over sharing of water, cremation grounds or sites of worship. “Sangh workers will focus on resolving disputes on sharing of wells or temples. We will try to make sure that everyone gets to use these places and there is no discrimination,” he added.

      Agreed with point that law should not be gender biased. We should make this as religious issues.lt;br/gt;But I have strong objection on RSS and everyone's selective statement as they are not talking about other gender biased laws of our country.lt;br/gt;1. Why female can not be sentenced in rape charges, why we feel only man's do rape.lt;br/gt;2. Why wife cannot be charged for domestic violence, why we feel only mans do violence.lt;br/gt;3. Why cannot we remove female word from all law dictionary with person including male.lt;br/gt;4. Why no paternity leaves to husband.lt;br/gt;5. Why child custody is only with wife.lt;br/gt;6. Why only man has to give maintenance.lt;br/gt;7. Why there are 49 biased laws for only female.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;It's all vote bank politics.

          rss supporting womens right is regressive / conservative and perhaps worthy of every cuss words in medias baggage, while commies and pseudo-secular supporting polygamy talaq and other forms of enslavement of women are very progressive and worthy of every good political virtues.
