Husbands give triple talaq so that they don’t have to kill wife: SP leader justifies practice

Prime News, National (New Delhi), July 23:- A Samajwadi Party leader has stirred a row after he justified the practice of triple talaq saying what will a man do if his wife is cheating on him. SP leader Riyaz Ahmed said that if a woman has illicit relations with another man, the husband has only two options, either to kill her or give her triple talaq.

“Triple talaq is given so that she is not killed,” Riyaz said. Riyaz is the head of the minorities panel of the Samajwadi Party.

Speaking at an event in Bareily, Riyaz also said that Muslim women should get a separate reservation of 8 per cent. He said that if the Bharatiya Janata Party government is really a wellwisher of Muslim women, they should give a separate quota to them under women reservation bill.  (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
