Bhubaneswar, April 16, 2017: Dubbing triple talaq a “bad social practice”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said such practices can be ended by social awakening but stressed that the BJP didn’t want a conflict in the society for this.

His observation came during his concluding remarks at the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) two-day National Executive meeting here.

“As far as social justice is concerned, our Muslim sisters should also get justice. There should not be injustice to them. No one should be exploited,” Union Minister Nitin Gadkari quoted Modi as saying.

According to Gadkari, Modi added: “We should not allow conflict in the society. We don’t want any conflict in Muslim society over the issue. We need to end such bad practices by awakening the society.”

Earlier, making an intervention during the discussion over the resolution passed on a new OBC commission, the Prime Minister said that even Muslim communities have backwards and marginalised and it was the duty of the government address their concerns.

Sources said that Modi asked the party leaders and workers to hold district-level conferences over the issues of backward Muslims and women.

Gadkari said Modi in his speech also expressed his desire to rid India of social and economic inequalities.

Recently, advertisements can be seen repeatedly in the past few days, announcing the arrival not of the Donald Trump but of his eldest son. The Donald Trump Jr. landed in India yesterday and is slated to sell his luxury apartments and lavish attention on wealthy Indians.  The advertisement further charms the people with “a conversation and dinner” with Trump Jr., if buyers who order apartments in the development by Thursday.

After Trump Jr. landed in India, he was seen posing for photos in New Delhi with Indian developers. One of the builders included Kalpesh Mehta. His firm is supposed to be the main Indian partner for Trump-brand real estate projects.

Although, during his election campaigns, President Donald Trump has pledged to avoid any new foreign business deals during his term in office. One of the better reasons for this was seen as to avoid potential ethical conflicts. But the visit by his Donald Trump’s son has directed the promises made by his father in some other direction. Moreover, Trump Jr. is flying around the world trying to trade on the fact that his father is sitting in the Oval Office. The global experts have long seen the use of the Trump name to promote even existing business ventures as a tricky territory.

The shocker over here is the scheduled speech of Trump Jr. about Indo-Pacific relations at a New Delhi business summit and the Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to share the stage with him. This has raised another set of ethics concerns by offering his thoughts on international relations, that too when Trump Jr. is not holding any portfolio in the US government. By sharing the stage with government officials and talking about international relations, he is surely portraying himself as an informal ambassador for the US.

Last November, Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump visited India with an altogether different agenda than that of Trump Jr. She led the U.S. contingent at a global business conference and even her speech was broadcasted live by various television stations.

Interestingly, it is not the first instance when President Trump’s sons have raised ethical concerns over their promotional visits. Last year only, Donald Trump’s sons inaugurated a Trump-branded golf club in Dubai. The two brothers are now official in-charge to lead the Trump Organization.

Trump Jr. has planned his sprawling building in the satellite city of India, Gurgaon. The people who are ready to invest huge sum into this can expect to move into their swanky homes sometime in 2023. To run his business in India, Trump Jr. has licensing agreements with all its Indian business partners. India holds out to be the brand’s largest market outside the United States. In Pune, a luxury complex is already operational. The expected price of apartments in the Trump Towers complex in Gurgaon runs between $775,000 and $1.5 million.
