Gandhinagar, Mar 19: The Muslim women "affected by the triple talaq practice voted for the BJP in good numbers" during the recent Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, claimed Union Minister for Law and Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad today.ravi-shankar

"In Uttar Pradesh, the women who have been affected due to the practice of triple talaq, voted for the BJP in good numbers. The state has the highest number of victims of this practice," said Prasad, who was here for the 8th Convocation of the Gujarat National Law University.

"It is unfortunate that (BSP supremo) Mayawati, (former Chief Minister) Akhilesh Yadav's wife Dimple or (Congress leader) Priyanka Gandhi are silent on the issue," he said.

Prasad said the central government has placed before the Supreme Court a strong argument against the triple talaq, as the practice is "not an issue of religion, but of gender justice, gender equality and gender dignity."

"The matter (of triple talaq) is pending in the Supreme Court. It is not an issue of religion, but of gender justice, gender equality and gender dignity," he said.

"We perform worship, but any wrong practice like untouchability can't become part of the prayer, because it is against the Constitution. Not discriminating against women is also the part of the Constitution," Prasad said.

"More than 20 Islamic majority countries have either limited the practice of triple talaq or have fully abolished it," the minister said.

Also present during the convocation ceremony were Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghosh of the Supreme Court, Chief Justice R Subhash Reddy of the Gujarat High Court and Minister of State for Law Pradipsinh Jadeja.

Prasad exuded confidence that "constitutionally, a grand Ram Temple will be constructed" at the disputed site in Ayodhya.

He said the evidence supporting Ram Temple is constitutionally strong, and "we are very confident that the Supreme Court will rule in our favour."

"We want SC to decide on it at the earliest. The evidence we have in support of Ram Temple is constitutionally strong and we are very confident, the Supreme Court will rule in our favour, and after that a grand Ram temple will be constructed there constitutionally," he said.

Taking potshots at the Congress, Prasad said, "Congress' biggest problem is Rahul Gandhi. It is for the party to think about him. We would like the Congress to become a strong opposition."

He also expressed confidence that the BJP will form government in Gujarat with an overwhelming majority like it did in Uttar Pradesh.

Gujarat goes for assembly polls during later part of the year.

It seems Mr. Ravi Shanker has taken doctorate degree in telling lie. Statement given by him that Muslim women supported bjp due to triple talaq issue is absolutely wrong and to defame Muslims. He should be hold responsible for giving incorrect statement and trying to create trouble in society. Name sake muslim ladies from Mukhtar Ansari + Shahnawa + MJ Akbar and some ladies who received money from bjp are agaisnt the triple talaq and other practices of Muslims. You will find their perc3entage to be less than 0.000001. Ravi Shanker might have not seen protests arranged by thousands of muslim women in many cities supporting Sharia law and taking oath to fight agaisnt any law trying for any change in Sharia law. Ravi shanker is giving statement on hidden agenda of bjp + sangh parivar. If any Muslim ladies are not in favor of Sharia law and other practices of Islam, they are free to do ghar wapasi and convert to the religion of non-believer where they will get good respect and money. These Mir Jafars are rat in muslim society and it will be better if they leave it. Such muslim named women will be most welcome by bjp and many will get married. Sakshi maharaj may marry many such ladies as he needs to have 40 children.

Mr. Prasad dont' be role of MUSLIMS well wisher The rule and practice of TRIPLE TALAK in ISLAM is based on HOLY QURAN and it is not man made rule. If you at all interested to protect MUSLIM WOMAN than make a rule to the culprits ONE WHO MISUSE and be like a MODEL.
Your present comment and intention is the order from rss. Just to create unrest and trouble one particular community.
Suggest to take more interest to stop practice of ONE wife with Five husband first. Which is most worst practice based on blind belief and a practice originated from man written story.

Above is the truth which we all observe only in our INDIA.

There are two ways to spread the knowledge...
One : To mislead the people by ignorants of our society.
Second : The honest people try to understand why these so called enemies of ISLAM try to teach the people what is ISLAM...

ALLAH (God of all that exists) who is most merciful... has given QURAN which is miracle for all era... and a message Directly from the CREATOR to the CREATION until the day of judgement...

Its up to the people to read and understand what is our CREATOR speaking... An intelligent will read and PONDER on it, A Person who never think of how all our system works and also the universe .. will wake up when the angel of death comes... On that day we are a big loser...

So I request all the non muslim readers ... just go to THE QURANPROJECT website and try to know what the CREATOR says to YOU about this LIFE and DEATH> and What will save from these enemies who try to demonise the beautiful religion of ISLAM

3ple Talak is not the way few veryfew ignorant muslim do... U should try to understand from islamic point before accepting the misleading knowledge from the IGNORANTS of our society.

If your intention is right, Definetely, ALLAH will guide you to TRUTH...
