Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Friday said the issue of ending triple Talaq practice should not be linked with uniform civil code and should not be politicised.

“People are confusing triple Talaq with uniform civil code. There is nothing wrong in discussing the issue and nothing is going to be forced on people,” Naidu said.

A day after All India Muslim Personal Law Board held a press conference against the uniform civil code, Naidu said uniform laws would be based on consensus and they should be discussed.

“Talking about situation on the border, dragging Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) in it… If you are so interested, you can join a political party, this is not expected from Muslim Personal Law Board and religious leaders,” the minister said.

The minister added that the issue is about giving equal rights to women and assured that no decision would be taken in a hurry.
