Addressing the Muslim women on the occasion, Smt. Smriti Irani said that 1st August is a day to salute the struggle of Muslim women against Triple Talaq.

On the occasion, Shri Bhupender Yadav said that the Government has been working to ensure dignity and empowerment of women from every section of society. The Government has ensured the dignity of Muslim women by bringing the law against Triple Talaq. Most of the major Muslim countries have also abolished Triple Talaq. He said that the Government’s policy of “Development without Discrimination” has created an atmosphere of trust across the country. The Government’s decision to provide quota for OBC and economically backward sections in medical/dental studies will benefit poor sections of the Muslim community also. Shri Bhupender Yadav said that the Government has always worked for the welfare of the needy.

Speaking on the occasion, Shri Naqvi said that the law against Triple Talaq has proved to be a “big reform” to ensure the Constitutional rights of Muslim women which has shown “better results”.  There is a significant decline in Triple Talaq cases across the country after the law came into effect, the Minister said.
