BSP supremo Mayawati Tuesday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his stance on the issue of triple talaq, saying he should not “force his opinion and decision” on the believers of any particular religion by “following the RSS agenda”. Accusing the BJP and the Centre of tinkering with issues related to Shariat, she said such matters should be left to the Muslim community and not raked up with an eye on the upcoming Assembly elections in some states for political gains.

“BJP and its central government led by Narendra Modi has now started a new controversy over Muslim personal law, triple talaq and common civil code before the Assembly elections in some states to serve its petty politics. BSP strongly condemns it,” Mayawati said in a statement.

“The prime minister and central government instead of interfering in the issue of triple talaq should better leave it to the Muslim community to form a common opinion,” she stressed. Modi had yesterday denounced the practice of triple talaq among Muslims and deprecated attempts to politicise the issue.

The BSP chief said it is not right for the prime minister to “force his opinion and decision on the believers of any particular religion by following the RSS agenda”.

“It is not in national interest that BJP and prime minister indulge in petty politics in the matters of Muslims and their Shariat, especially before the coming Assembly polls in some states,” she added.

    Laws on divorce may or may not allow Triple Talaq based on the rational interpretations of the Quran and hadith traditions and the laws by the Indian Government or the Indian Ummah based Islamic Courts or bodies may prevent triple Talaqlt;br/gt;lt;br/gt; But the greater issue is once a married couple ( husband or wife) have started hating each other, suious of each other’s honesty and chasy and have made up their minds to break off relations no matter what, then the law preventing Triple Talaq and forcing them to give a gap of say three months or so may not work effectively in most of the cases. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Preventing instant Talaq may be a stop gap temporary measure and the long lasting solution is firmer Eeman, stronger taqwa and the fear that in Islam divorce is the one thing that Allah has allowed but the same thing that shakes Allahs Arsh lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;By nature and disposition we come across people both men and women falling into many categories, some are tough, jealous, oppressive, insecure and some are even adulterous and such issues grow into irreconciliable differences and lead to a quick or dela divorce

So start Dhamma Chetna Jatra;br/gt;3. Muslim must be hated. So start triple talaq;br/gt;But modern india wants jobs and 15;br/gt;so he is going to loose all the state elections one by one.

                  When lakhs of Divorced and Talaq suffered Muslim Womens will march towards Mayavati's house then she will realize that her stance is only to appease male dominance muslim community and not the welfare of Muslim Womens who are now becoming stronger and stronger against all Mullas and all Mayavatis.
