BJP govt enforcing Triple Talaq act is dangerous for India’s secularism and integrity: N Chandrababu Naidu

New Delhi | Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party’s chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday alleged that Modi government’s plan to forcibly enforce Triple Talaq act is dangerous for the secularism and integrity of India.

Appealing to party’s MP to obstruct the Triple Talaq bill in the Rajya Sabha, Naidu said, “I appeal to the TDP RS MPs to obstruct the harassment of Muslims.” Urging the opposition to unite against the government,  Naidu said,”All opposition parties should fight unitedly against the anti-Muslim attitude of BJP.The govt forcibly imposing Triple Talaq act is a danger for secularism and national integrity.”

The contentious triple talaq bill seeking to criminalise instant divorce is set to be tabled in the Rajya Sabha even as the Congress said it will not allow the passage of the proposed legislation in its present form. Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad will table the bill in the Upper House after it was cleared by the Lok Sabha on Thursday amid a walkout by the Opposition. The bill was passed by the Lower House with 245 voting in favour and 11 opposing it.

In a landmark 3-2 verdict in August last year, the Supreme Court found the practice of “triple talaq” un-Islamic and “arbitrary”, and disagreed that it was an integral part of religious practices.
