Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu on October 22 described ‘ triple talaq ‘ as anti-constitutional and ‘anti-civilisation’ and said its high time that the country should get rid of it.
“Triple talaq is anti-constitutional, against law, against the principles of democracy and anti-civilisation. This kind of opinion is on the rise. There is a discussion going on, on this subject. Already so much of time has been taken. It is time the country should move forward to abolish ‘triple talaq’ to end the discrimination and also have gender justice and equality before law. We should end this.”

“Even Muslim women are demanding justice. There should not be any gender discrimination. There should be gender justice. All are equal before the Constitution.”
Naidu, further suggested that people go and voice their concern before the Supreme Court, which is currently scrutinizing the issue.
He though added that “some sections are resorting to a false propaganda” and trying to portray that the government is trying to implement Common Civil Code from the backdoor, which is not the case.
