Barsoi: Muslim women took to streets in Barsoi sub-divisional headquarters against triple talaq bill while registering vehement protest against the bill. Muslim women took out a silent procession and expressed faith in Muslim Personal Law.
Earlier a meeting was held at PWD ground. The speakers strongly slammed central government for the bill. Later women holding placards in the form of rally reached Sub-divisional office. A letter addressing president was handed over to SDO. The programme was organised under the flagship of Tahaffuz Shariat Committee. Men were not allowed in the meeting.
Kaneez Fatima who presided over the meeting said Muslim women satisfied with the Muslim Personal Law and they will not tolerate any kind of interference in it. She said central government with the help of the Bill is targeting a particular committee. This is a planned conspiracy to disintegrate their family system. It is a nefarious conspiracy which will not be allowed to be implemented. Shaheen Talat said if the government is sincere for welfare and development of women, then why only Muslim women, there are more than 24 lakh non-Muslim sisters in the society who are abandoned without talaq. One of them is the wife of our Prime Minister Narendra Modi Jashodaben Ben.
Majida Khatoon said the bill is a sheer violation of section 14 and 15 of Indian Constitution. Darakhshan Parveen said the bill is against the interest of Muslim children and women. The speakers demanded the withdrawal of the bill.
