We also want to give Muslim sisters the same rights as in other countries,” Modi said at a rally in Bhadohi, a district with a considerable number of Muslim voters.

“We have introduced a provision to the same effect in the Parliament according to their (Muslims) sentiments and institutions. We do not disrespect religious sentiments of anyone, we act according to the constitution which ensures equal rights for all,” PM Modi said.The Prime Minister alleged that Opposition parties were not letting the law pass in the Parliament.

“Congress and its allies are forcing the sisters to live in fear of triple talaq. They are trying to stall the triple talaq bill,” he said.

PM Modi assured the gathering that he would not let ‘mahamilavatis’ (highly adulterated), as he called the SP-BSP-RLD alliance, succeed in their endeavours to stall the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2018 in the Parliament.
