BSP supremo Mayawati 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 in a statement that 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. Mayawati’s criticism comes just a day after PM Modi said that the issue of triple talaq should not be politicised, adding that justice would be given to Muslim women under the Constitution regarding the issue.
