Muslim Women

New Delhi:
Showering praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi government in New Delhi, Muslim women associated with Muslim Rashtriya Manch on Saturday said they were "feeling safe" under the present dispensation as this was the first time their concerns were being taken care of.

"Muslim women always live under fear. Damocles sword of triple talaq always hangs over their heads. They don't know when their husband will pronounce 'triple talaq' and end marriage and marital relationship", Shehnaz Hussain, President of Muslim Rashtriya Manch, an offshoot of RSS, said.

Shehnaz Hussain was addressing a seminar of Muslim women at Vitthalbhai Patel House in New Delhi.

"This is the first time a government is taking note of our concerns", she said as the Muslim women present in the seminar shouted slogans "Hamara Bhavishya, Modi Sarkar" (Our future is safe under Modi govt) and "Muslim Behno ne thaana hai, Modi ka saath nibhana hai" (Muslim sisters have decided to stand with Modi government).

"Modi's is the first government which felt the anguish of Muslim women and assured them that the constitutional rights accorded to other women of the country will also be extended to them so that they can also live a life of dignity", she said.

Triple Talaq

Shehnaz Hussain also said that the women in Delhi are encouraged by the support which the Muslim women extended to BJP in the recently concluded Uttar Pradesh elections.

"Now it is time for us to repeat the same with the same spirit in Delhi", she said.

While addressing the seminar Pinki Anand, Additional Solicitor General in Supreme Court, said the Muslim women are against the practice of "triple talaq" but they remain silent as they live under fear.

"I have attended many seminars and programs on the topic. Everywhere I found Muslim women opposing "triple talaq". It is because of politics that triple talaq is still in practice", she said.

"Enough is enough. Jurm sehna bhi aik jurm hai ... It is now time that Muslim women acquire education, become empowered and fight for their rights", she said.

Taking the discussion further, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) staff member Darkhan said education is one thing which is a matter of concern for Muslim women.

"The present dispensation is worried over the sorry state of Muslim women, and wants to do a lot to bring about a change. This is the time for all of us to make use of this opportunity", Darkshan said.

Sana Khan of Delhi while addressing the seminar highlighted the discrimination Muslim women are subjected since childhood urged them to come forward and join hands to bring about a positive change.

"We should realise our strenght and join hands in this fight of our rights", she said.
