Raising the issue of ‘triple talaq’ at the BJP National Executive Meet, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that justice should be done to Muslim women, according to Union Road and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari. Modi also said that if there are social evils, the society should be woken up and efforts made to provide justice to the victims.

“He (Modi) talked about social justice. He said our Muslim sisters should also get justice. Injustice should not be done with them. Nobody should be exploited. We do not want that there is conflict within the Muslim community over this issue. What we have to do is that if there are any social evils, we have to wake up the society and make efforts to provide justice to them (Muslim women). That was the Prime Minister’s spirit,” Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said while briefing reporters.

Tearing into the Opposition for accusing BJP of tampering with the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) in recent polls, Modi said they are trying to churn up rows particularly ahead of the MCD polls. “Opposition is concoction new issues in a factory of some kind. During Delhi Elections, Church attacks were the highlights and during the Bihar Polls ‘Award Wapasi’ was the issue. And right now it is the EVM,” the Prime Minister said during the meeting.

Modi also called on the BJP leaders to maintain caution while making statements and not get carried away with emotions and make untoward remarks. “If there are any complaints, then the matter should be passed on to the party leaders who will convey it to me,” he said.

The Prime Minister also called on the BJP to not get too excited over the recent State Assembly Elections victory and ensure they keep the momentum going. “The BJP will launch a special campaign for those 120 Lok Sabha seats which have been out of our reach,” he added. The Prime Minister also hailed the efforts of Party President Amit Shah saying that he was the ideal model of an able strategist.

    Yes, justice should be done to Zakia Jafri, Bilkis Banu and lots of Gujarati women who were brutally raped during your tenure as CM. When you ordered your goons to carry out the pogrom against the minorities. Still, you are trying to propagate your communal agenda in the name of muslim women.

            The truth is that the triple talaq which is created in the 7th century to treat women as slaves, objects, force women to cover themselves from head to toe, etc are not relevant in the 21st century, and the PM Modi is 100 correct. The opposition parties like the communists, the congress, the SP, the BSP, etc haven't contributed anything (ZILCH) for the betterment of the country nor it people, blocking every developmental proposal made by the BJP for no good reasons, have lost the mandate of the Indian electorate, and now crying fowl.

                    The objective is to please RSS, not the love he developed for Muslim women. He is power hungry, so can't behave like a PM and be comp ionate and kind to all, especially he wants to please RSS at every level to win more election. There is a difference between a campaigner and a good PM and he certainly can't be a good PM like Ataljee

                      The idea is to get justice for half the po tion of India.

                        Since when did this fake humanist become concerned about Muslims? The man who suppressed all evidence during his tenure as Gujarat Chief Minister to deprive justice to the Muslims in riots of 2002 is today posing himself as a Messiah of Muslim women. What a change of heart or is it a change of mask to divide the Muslim votes?

                          If muslim men didn't abuse religion to satisfy their lust, this situation wouldn't have arisen.

                            No Muslim men do that except few who do it for there self benefit ...and they do it even after they knew they are doing it ... Such fews are there in every religion like upper cl Hindus trying to eliminate lower cl for their benefit ... Including by hedonist
