The All India Muslim Personal Law Board had rejected the questionnaire on Uniform Civil Code (UCC) by the Law Commission on triple talaq. The Board had accused the Government of trying to evoke a ‘war’ in the Muslim community.

To which many BJP leaders said that it was only in the welfare of women. Earlier, M Venkaiah Naidu and now Ravi Shankar Prasad have quashed all the allegations of a political agenda behind it.

Ravi Shankar today told News 18 that Triple talaq affidavit has nothing to do with UP elections and there isn’t any political agenda in it.

 

Naidu too had talked on the same lines by saying ”You want to boycott Law Commission, then it’s your choice but don’t force your view on others and don’t make it political.”

The triple talaq provision allows a Muslim man to divorce his wife by merely pronouncing talaq thrice or saying it three times simultaneously in three sentences.
