Hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed to the Muslim community to find a proper solution for triple talaq, the Samajwadi Party criticized the former saying that he should also speak up on other issues which are being faced by the Muslim women.
“Prime Minister Modi should also focus on other problems of Muslim women. Muslim women are losing their husbands and son due to violence by Gau Rakshaks,” Samajwadi Party leader told ANI.
Earlier, Congress dubbed Prime Minister’s assertion as insignificant adding that he made the statement eyeing upcoming elections in Karnataka.
“Prime Minister Modi made the statement eyeing upcoming elections in Karnataka. He has been doing this and will also continue to do in future. He is following the ideology of RSS. His speech does not hold any significance,” Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge told ANI.
