Attacking PM won't do give solution to triple talaq: Naidu

Hyderabad (Telangna) [India], Oct. 26 (ANI): After Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati said Prime Minister Narendra Modi "should not interfere" in the matter of triple talaq and should allow the Muslims to solve the issue through consensus, Union Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday said triple talaq is not a communal or a religious issue, it is an issue of ending gender discrimination, while asking the Samajwadi Party, BSP and "their guardian" the Congress to together give a solution to this pressing problem.

Addressing the media, Naidu questioned if the BSP was supporting the discrimination against women or do they not want equal treatment to all - there should be no discrimination on the basis of religion.

"Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and their guardian the Congress should together give a solution, which would be really good. Let the BSP, SP and the Congress come clean, because they all are partners of the UPA. What is their stand on the abolition of triple talaq," Naidu said.

"Triple talaq is not a communal issue or a religious issue, it is an issue of gender justice. It is an issue of ending gender discrimination; it is an issue of equality before law, which is granted by the article 14 and 15 of the Constitution. I said it earlier and I am repeating it again for sake of those people who are not able to understand it. Unnecessary dragging the Prime Minister and Sangh makes no sense," he added.

Naidu further said they are trying to defame Prime Minister Modi and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Backing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's stand on triple talaq, the minister said, "The Court asked the government what is their stand on this issue and to which, the Government discussed it within themselves and came to a conclusion that triple talaq is harmful and discriminatory and is doing injustice to the poor women and should be abolished."
