Triple talaq bill is a conspiracy against muslim men: AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi

Aurangabad, Jan 23: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi alleged that the triple talaq bill is a conspiracy of the central government against Muslims and a move to punish men from the community.

Owaisi, known for his firing talks and also the Lok Sabha member from Hyderabad launched an attack against the Centre by saying that a committee was constituted to look into the row over the film “Padmaavat” but no such step was taken on the triple talaq issue.

“The triple talaq bill is a conspiracy against the Muslim community. It a tactic to bring out the women of the community on roads and send the men to prison,” the AIMIM leader said at a public meeting last night.

Interestingly, he also asked the Muslim community to socially boycott those who take the instant triple talaq route to divorce and said that Rs 2,000 crore should be allocated for Muslim women in the budget.

Owaisi also alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was doing nothing for the nation but was always ahead to take credit for the good work done by others.

“The BJP wants a Muslim-free India and this would not happen,” he said and urged the people from his community and the Dalits to wake up and raise their voice against injustice.

Owaisi alleged that the Union government was trying to forcefully implement the ideology of V D Savarkar. “The ideology of MS Golwalkar, KB Hedgewar, and Sawarkar was Hinduism and we are not going to accept it,” he added.

He also sought to know why Sambhaji Bhide of the Shiv Pratishthan Hindustan and Milind Ekbote of the Hindu Ekta Aghadi were not arrested in connection with the violence on January 1 during an event to commemorate the bicentenary of the Koregaon Bhima battle in Pune.
