Reacting to the statement by Prime Minister Narendra Modi that there should not be a politicisation of the 'triple talaq' issue, the Congress today said that the PM himself had been indulging in the politicisation of the issue.Talking to reporters here, AICC senior spokepseson and leader of the opposiiton in the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad said,''the PM himself is the champion of the politicisation of the triple talaq issue. His statement today itself is an example of a politicisation of the issue.''Asserting that none of the Opposition parties, be it the JD-U, the RJD, the SP or the DMK had ever said anything on the issue, Mr Azad said,''it is the BJP leaders and the RSS pracharaks who have been raising the issue in their electoral campaign. The statement by the Opposition parties have come only in response to the statements by the BJP leaders.The Prime Minister should put a control on his partymen.''Asked about the party's stand on the issue, Mr Azad said there was a proper procedure laid down in the Quran wherein no one could give divorce by simply sating 'talaq' to a woman thrice.''I do not think any Muslim conversant of the tenets of the Quran would endorse the way of talaq being referred to by the BJP leaders. A detailed procedure has been laid down in the Quran in this regard,''he said.Accusing the BJP of raking up the issue to 'create a new vote bank', Mr Azad said,''when the matter is subjudice, the BJP should not try to create a new vote bank.''Speaking at a function to pay tributes to Lord Basavanna of Karnataka, PM Modi said the discussions were going on, on Triple Talaq, but he requested the Muslim society not to politicise the matter and hoped that the issue would be resolved within their community itself. "I urge the Muslim community and others not to see the issue of Triple Talaq with the prism of religion. Don't let it go that route," Mr Modi said.UNI AR SHK 1848
