Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited plenty of flak for himself because of his comments on triple talaq. Many commentators have highlighted the glaring hypocrisy in his statement particularly in light of his own treatment to his estranged wife Jashodaben, who he abandoned without any alimony for decades ago.
However, his supporters have defended his statement arguing that the talking about reform in Muslim society must be appreciated.
What do you think? Do you believe that Modi’s statement smacks of utter electoral opportunism given that the 20 plus percent of Muslim votes may be pivotal in deciding the outcome in next year’s assembly elections? Or do you think the prime minister’s sudden outpour of emotions for Muslims is genuine.
