Triple talaq is one of the most heated topics in India right now. The central government had made its stand clear on the issue and also said that it might take a string decision on it after the UP assembly elections. Even then the debate is far from being settled as the case is still going on in the Supreme court. However, one such debate on Hindi news channel News Nation took an ugly turn when Maulvi Sajid Rashidi attacked BJP leader Shazia Ilmi by saying that she is a not a good Muslim since she celebrates Holi with Hindus.

Some panellists including Rahila Perveen objected to this statement and later Ilmi herself took to Twitter to express her opinion about the incident. She was disappointed that the host didn’t refrain Sajid Rashidi. Shazia Ilmi’s tweet read as “News Nation Anchor should have refrained Sajid Rashidi when he said ‘Shazia is not a good Muslim because she celebrates Holi with Hindus.”

This is not the first time when the BJP leader is in the news due to her views about triple talaq. Earlier, she accused organisers of putting pressure on her for removing her name from the list of speakers from a discussion organised at Delhi’s Jamia Milia University. She said Awareness of National Security which is supported by RSS invited her to speak on the matter but organisers pressurised them to her name off the list. Later, the topic was changed from ‘triple talaq’ to ‘women empowerment’. However, even then Ilmi’s name was taken off from the list.
