Congress MP Defends Triple Talaq, Says Even Lord Ram Left Sita Over Doubts
Congress MP Hussain Dalwai stoked a controversy ahead of the tabling of Triple Talaq Bill in Rajya Sabha. Comparing the suffering of Muslim women to that of Goddess Sita, he said that even Lord Ram once left Sita due to trust issues. “Women are being treated unfairly in all communities, not just Muslims, even Hindus, Christians, Sikhs etc. In every society, there is male domination. Even Shree Ram Chandra Ji once left Sita Ji after doubting her. So we need to change as a whole,” he said. However later, he clarified his comment and asserted that what he said was not meant to malign any religion. “I am a devotee of the deity too. But, what I said was meant to highlight the fact that even Hindu women had suffered a lot since the ancient times,” he reportedly said.
