“BJP’s stand on the issue of triple talaq has made them popular among Muslim women, who have suffered a lot due to this practice. In the Uttar Pradesh elections, our Muslim sisters had extended support to the BJP and broke the myth that Muslims don’t vote for BJP,” Goel said in the statement.

He further said that the party was committed to work for the upliftment of Muslims and resolve their issues constitutionally.

As per the release, Muslim women took part in the BJP rally on Thursday that started from Turkman Gate here. (IANS)

The court directed that the matter be placed before the Chief Justice for setting up of an appropriate bench. Appearing for one of the petitioners, senior counsel Mohan Parasaran told the court that the 2017 judgement which had held instant triple talaq as unconstitutional had left these two issues open and did not address them.
