New Delhi: Seeking equal rights for Muslim women, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said he believes that the reformers from the community will protect women from ill-effects of triple talaq.

"I am sure that reformers from the Muslim community will come forward and put an end to triple talaq," the PM said while speaking on the occasion of Basava Jayanti at Vigyan Bhawan in the city.

He further said: "Triple talaq issue should not be seen through a political prism."

PM Modi also said that he would fight against the sufferings of the Muslim daughters in the country. "My government will bring an end to this archaic law," he added.

The Prime Minister had also raised the issue in his valedictory address at the conclusion of the two-day BJP National Executive in Bhubaneswar.

"He (Modi) talked about social justice. He said our Muslim sisters should also get justice. Injustice should not be done with them. Nobody should be exploited," Union Minister Nitin Gadkari had said, quoting PM Modi.

"We do not want conflict within the Muslim community over this issue. What we have to do is that if there are any social evils, we have to wake the society up and make efforts to provide justice to them (Muslim women). That was the Prime Minister's spirit," Gadkari added.

Meanwhile Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan said: "The PM should also focus on the other problems faced by women in the Muslim community. They are losing their husbands and son due to violence created by gau rakshaks."
