SILCHAR, Aug 24 - After the Supreme Court quashed the practice of triple talaq system bringing great joy to the Muslim women of the nation, Union Minister of State for External Affairs, MJ Akbar, said that had the Congress been in power now, it would have done everything to overturn the decision of the Supreme Court.
Akbar was here to attend the mega blood donation camp organised by the BJP Silchar Town and Block Mandal Committee as a part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s vision of New India Manthan 2022. �Had Congress been in power now, it would have initiated laws to overturn the decision of the Supreme Court. It is now spreading misinformation that the ban on triple talaq system is a verdict of the Supreme Court and Government has no role behind the decision,� Akbar was quoted as saying.
Further, Akbar said that the Prime Minister has been striving for women emancipation and creating congenial environment for women since the day he took charge to lead the nation.
