New Delhi: Slamming the Centre for introducing a bill against 'triple talaq' in the Lok Sabha, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday claimed that it violates the fundamental rights and will be injustice to Muslim women.

Blaming the BJP-led central government of not doing enough consultation before forming the bill, he said, "This will be injustice to Muslim women... Make a law where the 20 lakh women from other religions, who have been abandoned, which also includes our Bhabhi in Gujarat, they should be given justice."

By saying 'Bhabhi in Gujarat', he indirectly referred to the wife of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He also opined what was the need of a separate law to declare 'Talaq-e-Bidat' a criminal offence when there was an existing law on domestic violence. He claimed that the newly introduced bill lacks basic legal coherence.

"There is absence of consistency with the existing legal framework. The bill says the husband will be sent to jail, and it also says he will have to pay allowance... How can a person in jail pay allowances," he said referring to the provision that a woman given triple talaq will have the right to seek maintenance.
