- To thank PM Modi hundreds of Muslim women gathered outside Goel’s residence
Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs and former BJP Delhi Pradesh President Vijay Goel has welcomed the Union Cabinet Ordinance on Triple Talaq, which makes it a punishable offence. Goel said that it is a part of Mod government’s comprehensive policy to empower women of the country and not be linked to politics or religion. The minister stated that the Bill is ‘pro-women’ and the opposition should appreciateit for the simple fact that it grants equality to Muslim women.
To thank PM Narendra Modi on this historic move on Triple Talaq, hundreds of Muslim women gathered at Union Minister Vijay Goel’s residence in New Delhi. Goel welcomed the gathering and celebrated the decision by distributing sweets. He also assured the women present that he would personally convey their message to the Prime Minister. During this meet, an emotional lady said that her husband abandoned her along with her four little children taking advantage of Triple Talaq. On this, Goel assured her full help.
The Union Minister said that in a secular country like India, injustice was being done to many women for a long time. This ordinance was an urgent need for justice, dignity and equality of women. Goel lamented that “despite Supreme Court’s orders last year, Triple Talaq continued unabated”. He said that as many as 430 Triple Talaq took place between January 2017 to September 2018, out of which 201 cases were reported after the SC order.
Goel accused Congress of double standards. He said “it’s the same Congress who supported the bill in the Lok Sabha and allowed it to pass. But, they did a U-turn when it came to Rajya Sabha”. Why is the Congress against Triple Talaq? “I tried my best to build a united front to pass the bill in the Rajya Sabha, met senior Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Anand Sharma several times in this regard, but to no avail. They were adamant on not letting the bill go through in Rajya Sabha.
Thrilled by the news, women said that the decision by the Modi govt on the issue of Triple Talaq was in their favour.They said they want to thank Narendra Modi for being the only person in so many years to come forward and take a concrete step towards safeguarding their rights.
