PM Modi
New Delhi: Amid a raging debate over triple talaq and the rights of Muslim women, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that the contentious issue of triple talaq should not be seen from political prism.

“Main Muslim samaaj se aagrah karunga ki triple talaq ke mudde ko rajneeti ke daayre mein mat aane dijiye. Aap log aage aakar iska samaadhan kijiye (I request Muslim society not to politicise the triple talaq issue. Rather, come forward and solve the matter),” Modi said at the launch of translated volumes of Vachana, penned by 12th-century social reformer Basavanna and other saints in 23 Indian languages on the occasion of birth anniversary Basavanna.

Modi said he would fight against the suffering of Muslim daughters in the country, saying his government would work towards finding a solution.
