Scores of Muslim women thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the passage of the Triple Talaq Bill in the Rajya Sabha. Many Muslim women gathered on Wednesday at the Delhi BJP office and party leader Vijay Goel's residence where they enthusiastically hailed PM Modi, saying they feel "empowered".

Vijay Goel said that the move will empower Muslim women. "All these women have come here to thank Prime Minister Modi. The Opposition opposed the bill in the Rajya Sabha only to play politics," said Goel.

"We can now raise a voice against injustice without fearing being divorced instantly," said one woman. Another said, "Earlier, we women were beaten up, harassed and we could never fight it. But now, we can take legal recourse if we are ditched through triple talaq".

At Goel's residence, Union minister Prakash Javadekar said the move will empower Muslim women. Goel said PM Modi never indulged in votebank politics and was inspired only by the wellbeing of people. In another event at the Delhi BJP office that was addressed by BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi, women thanked BJP and PM Modi for safeguarding them from the evil practice of instant divorce. They were seen celebrating along with Lekhi, dancing to dholnagadas and exchanging sweets.

Lekhi said, "Back in 1984, Rajiv Gandhi had the numbers both in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha. Yet, they couldn't provide Shah Bano with justice. Muslim women don't have to live in fear, anymore. They have (brother) Narendra Modi."
