82% Decline In Triple Talaq Cases Since Law Enacted In India, Says Naqvi
The Minority Affairs Minister now wants August 1 to be celebrated as ‘Muslim Women’s Rights Day’
Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Minority Affairs Minister of India, has asserted that there has been an 82% decline in triple talaq cases in the country since the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act was enacted last year. Terming the erstwhile law a “social evil,” the Minister called for the terming of August 1 as “Muslim Women’s Rights Day,” since that was the date on which the law was put into place last year.
Addressing the triple talaq issue, Naqvi said, “This big reform and an excellent result has been possible due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s strong willpower. In the last one year, there has been an 82% fall in the cases of triple talaq and those that actually went through have been dealt with by law. This is the reason why, Muslim women and women of other communities as well, want August 1 to be celebrated as Muslim women’s rights day.”
