New Delhi (August 02,2023) : Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked NDA MPs to reach out to Muslim women on the triple talaq ban. He said that the ban is a historic step towards women empowerment and that it is important to ensure that Muslim women are aware of their rights. Modi made the remarks during a meeting with NDA MPs on Tuesday. He said that the ban on triple talaq is a "victory for women" and that it will help to "empower" them. He also said that it is important to ensure that Muslim women are aware of their rights under the law.

 The ban on triple talaq was passed by the Parliament in July 2019. The law makes it a criminal offense for a man to divorce his wife by saying "talaq" three times. The law also provides for a punishment of up to three years in jail for men who violate the law. Modi's remarks come at a time when there is a growing awareness of the issue of triple talaq among Muslim women. In recent years, there have been several high-profile cases of Muslim women who have been divorced by their husbands through triple talaq. These cases have highlighted the need for legal protection for Muslim women.
