UP minister says triple talaq is being misused to satisfy ‘lust’

Ahead of the state assembly elections, the BJP, in its election manifesto, had said it would collect the opinion of Muslim women and present it in the Supreme Court.

KICKING UP a row, Uttar Pradesh Cabinet Minister Swami Prasad Maurya has said that Muslim men are misusing the practice of triple talaq to “continuously” change wives and satisfy their “lust”.
“BJP Muslim mahilaon ke saath khadi hai. Jo akaran, bewajah, aur manmane tareeke se jab chaha talaq de diya… Koi apni havas ko pura karne ke liye lagatar patniyan badalte rehne ka kaam kare… apne hi bachchon ko, apni hi patni ko sadak par bheekh maangne ke liye majboor kar de… To swabhavik roop se isse na aap achcha kahenge, na koi doosra achcha kahega),” he said.

(“The BJP is with Muslim women. Those who give talaq without any reason, at their will… They continuously change wives to satisfy their lust… forcing their own wives and children to beg on the road… Nobody will call this right.”)

Maurya was speaking to mediapersons while attending a function at the residence of a BJP worker in Basti district on Friday evening.  “Is prakar ki jo peedit mahilayen hain, bhuktbhogi mahilayen hain… BJP unko samman dilane ke liye kaam karegi (BJP will work to restore the honour of women who are victims of such practices),” he said.

Demanding an apology from Maurya, Muslim cleric Maulana Khalid Rashid Farangi Mahli said: “Such irresponsible and uncivilised statements are not expected from a cabinet minister. He should apologise for his unparliamentary language. He has attacked the community. Census 2011 data shows that the percentage of people who marry more than once is more in other communities.”

Asked about Maurya’s remarks, Cabinet minister and government spokesperson Shrikant Sharma said, “He is a senior leader and his sentiments expressing concern for women are good. But the selection of words should be appropriate, so that opposition parties and pseudo-seculars do not get any opportunity.” He said the BJP has made its stand against triple talaq clear.

Ahead of the state assembly elections, the BJP, in its election manifesto, had said it would collect the opinion of Muslim women and present it in the Supreme Court. The state government has already started holding meetings with NGOs to discuss the possible mechanism for this.

        Whenever something about Muslims issues pops up, there are lot of hate speeches/writing starts in this column with vulgarity and profane language. We feel shame to read them even. It seems some anti-national elements from BJP party and some vested interests elements from neighboring country p a k i s t a n are engaged in these spreading hatred among Hindus and Muslims. Spreading hate is a crime, but Indian Express ventilate these hate speeches relentlessly without any moderation or editing. Very sad Mr Editor.

            Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modiji and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanathji should come forward to slap this irresponsible, loose character, stunt master to shut his mouth. He should be sacked from BJP for defaming the Muslims. Triple talaq, triple talaq, where is available in India? How many cases were filed in the court about triple talaq? This is a very very minute issue, but BJP is trying to make it a big issue.

                        He is definitely right. The honest truth in most of the talaq is the same.

                                  What he said wrong?? It's nothing..it has been become a common fashion in Muslim community to give triple talaq..many cases are daily flashing on news not bcoz of BJP but this time Muslim woman standing unitedly to oppose the bad practices of Muslim man ...Muslim community doesn't want interference of Supreme Court,parliament in TT matter but they want court decision in babri masjid case..what a biased mentality they have....

And what I had spoke above is about the Danger looking towards India s future as a result of such a discrimination ... I am worried about it being an Indian .coz am born here to live till I die as a patriot Indian .. It's not misleading .. I hve many friends n GCC . .... Only way they could protest against cow vigilantes are by quitting using products like AL kabeer which is exported by India .... If u oppos me that really does mean u are opposing the growth of India. It's fact . .... I don't care whoever govern this country but it shud be towards growth .There are many factors like this to be looked into if u really wish the growth Jai hind

                                            Mr. Minister it is not Muslims but people from other communities who are shamelessly forsaking their religions driven by lust/love. Let the government ins ute an impartial fact finding commission to investigate the incidence of divorces among different Indian communities. Hate mongering and foul speaking about others will only harm the interest of building inter-community trust.

                                                    There are no anti Hindu parties or anti Hindu religion in India ..thre are only anti RSS parties and anti RSS religion . Not all Hindus are RSS nocent Hindus are there who hate RSS to the core . Vnksk had always been specifically calling all anti RSS party as anti Hindus as a part of agenda. To make a trend that .... Those who oppose RSS are anti Hindus and RSS is an Hindu welfare party .that's wrong wrong and a false belief

                                                        You are confusing a hindu rap ist of his baby sister, lord of hinduism immorality Ram, to promote hind crime of hinduism, racism as a faith, with a Muslim Personality, check the facts, before spewing your hinduism absurdities in public. itdoes not look like of a human being but, a hindu, acclaimed son of a monkey in human form.

                                                          Hindus don't pray to Draupadi she was just a queen for your kind information. I would say not for lust only but also increase their po tion to grab land , woman , resources and countries

                                                                Yup that's the reason y the rapes are happening n Delhi Rajasthan and MP n public .. They don't hide the lust right . I feel sorry for many good Hindu brothers for retaining many scou ndrels like deb. Mahendar dileeep in their religion..Hindus are very innocent by their mind except few hate mongers like this who are working as a lart of Some one s political agenda ... This will.lead to the fall of our fast growing country now or else soon we will realise .. We will be isolated by all world countries for having such a hatred behaviour .We have seen the Americans who supported Muslims when trump declared the bann.. Coz they knew people belong to those religion are innocent but few radicals who have personal agendas are behind the violence .... And other fact is Islam.is worlds second largest religion in the world ...so such an at ude towards this religion could reflect In India s economical growth .....

Being an Indian am really worried about it .. The communal agenda wot BJP had been showing was to believed as a process to achieve the power ..they have ready achieved it so y don't they stop it now and concentrate in the growth of the country together .... Let the rights all enjo so far continue ..stop violence like happened as a part of cow vigilantes .... Stop many social.media pets like these goons who monger hate ..let's grow together
