Senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi today questioned the silence of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Prasad on the Allahabad High Court’s observation that “triple Talaq is cruelty against Muslim women”.
He also said that his party is on board with the court’s observations.
“It is baffling that Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad have chosen to maintain stoic silence on the raging issue of triple talaq for the sake of vote bank politics,” Modi alleged.
Asking Kumar if he had taken consent of the male population before granting 50 percent reservation to women in the state’s panchayats, he said if not, why wasn’t he supporting Muslim women in their crusade against the menace which was opposed by 90 percent of them.
Claiming inconsistency in the chief minister’s stand on empowerment of women, the BJP leader accused him of not backing Muslim women in their fight against triple talaq and polygamy for the sake of vote bank politics.
