An outspoken critic of the ordinance against triple talaq, Asaduddin Owaisi has made another provocative remark by saying that abortions primarily happen only in the Hindu community. BJP slammed the remarks calling it ‘archaic and misogynistic’.
He cited the 2001 census to claim that a majority of the married women who commit suicide or are victims of murder are Hindus.
BJP’s Telangana spokesperson Krishna Saagar Rao was quoted as saying, “Owaisi’s mindset has been exposed with these remarks which are archaic and misogynistic. Instead of applauding the initiative taken by the BJP government in bringing out triple talaq ordinance, he is indulging in comparative analysis of the plight of women with other religion.”
Rao said, “He seems to blinded by both his own fundamentalist mindset and lack of any basis to compare 84 per cent of the population with less than 15 per cent.”
Last week, Owaisi termed the triple talaq ordinance as ‘anti-Muslim women’. Furthermore, he demanded a legislation aimed to protect Hindu women deserted by their husbands.
According to him, marriage in Islam is a civil contract and bringing in legislation about it is wrong and unnecessary. #KhabarLive
