New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday assured justice to Muslim women through Triple Talaq Bill.

While addressing the nation in the 47th edition of his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ radio programme, the Prime Minister said, “The Triple Talaq bill was passed in Lok Sabha, but could not be passed in the Rajya Sabha. But, I would like to assure Muslim women that the entire nation is there with them and we will ensure that they get justice.”

The BJP has been accusing the Congress of stalling the passage of the landmark Bill which was passed in the Lok Sabha on December 29, 2017. The Bill is yet to be introduced in the upper House of the Parliament. The Congress-led Opposition, however, has demanded that the Bill should be sent to the Select Committee for further scrutiny.
