Lucknow, April 17: A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for “justice” to Muslim women facing triple talaaq, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday said people sitting silent on the issue are equally to be blamed as criminals for the condition of divorced women.

Speaking at a book launch on the anniversary of former Prime Minister Chandrashekhar, Adityanath talked about the situation to the “cheer haran” (disrobing) of Draupadi in the court of Dhratrashtra when many silently watched as she was being humiliated.

“People are mum on such a contentious issue,” Yogi said, questioning the silence of people on the matter.

He slammed those who were against uniform civil code, questioning why should there be two laws when the entire country was one.

Adityanath also said that politics should be practised under the constitutional limits and pointed out that the late Chandrashekhar was also a votary of common laws.

The Chief Minister said Chandrashekhar had the courage to speak the truth even if it was bitter and that despite being a socialist by heart he was a spiritual man as well.

The Bharatiya Janata Party government in Uttar Pradesh has already said that it would get a referendum conducted among Muslim women on the issue of triple talaaq.

New Delhi, Feb 21:  Delhi police on Wednesday arrested AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan in Delhi Chief Secretary alleged assault case. He would be produced before Delhi’s Tis Hazari court.

Earlier today the MLA Amanatullah Khan reached Jamia Nagar Police Station, says that he has come to surrender. He  also added that ‘I have not done anything wrong.’

Delhi Police has detained the AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan at Jamia Nagar Police Station in connection with the investigation of the case.

The police today also questioned V.K. Jain, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s advisor in connection with an alleged assault on Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by two AAP MLAs.

This comes just hours after AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal was arrested by the police on Tuesday night in connection with the alleged assault.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police, Harendra Kumar Singh told IANS that Jain was being questioned at the Civil Lines Police Station.

On Tuesday, Prakash had alleged that he was beaten up by Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan and his colleague in front of Kejriwal at the Chief Minister’s residence on Monday midnight, where he was called for a meeting.

The Chief Minister’s advisor was present at the time of the incident, according to Prakash’s police complaint.

The Additional DCP said police were also trying to track down Khan. They had been to Khan’s residence to detain him on Tuesday night, but the AAP MLA from Okhla was not present.

The allegation of the assault triggered a political storm in the national capital a day ago with the BJP demanding Kejriwal’s resignation and the Congress asking for the AAP chief’s apology.

The AAP hit back by stating that the Chief Secretary was making false allegations and said he was working at the “behest of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)”.

The Home Ministry sought a report from Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on the issue and Home Minister Rajnath Singh said he was “deeply pained” by the development.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday afternoon, Delhi Environment Minister Imran Hussain was manhandled by a crowd which gathered outside the door of a lift inside the Delhi Secretariat. Hussain’s Assistant Personal Secretary was beaten up, according to multiple video clips from the Secretariat.
