On Congress Foundation Day, one of the patron saints of liberal values, Salman Khurshid defended Triple Talaq giving one of the most feeble excuses ever, “who will take care of the family if the man who gives Triple Talaq is jailed for the same”?
I don’t think we can support it because they didn’t make us understand how this criminality of Triple Talaq will benefit women. If someone is lodged in prison as a punishment for saying Triple Talaq, who will take care of his family: Salman Khurshid, Congress on #TripleTalaqBill pic.twitter.com/C6OgzzGH07

This, of course, got twitterati riled up over the regressive, vote bank pleasing statement.
Shameless Baisakhi Chacha blabbering rubbish nonsense. Many husbands are jailed for various crimes that time nobody cares for his family,kids,wife

What a shameful and regressive stand. If anything, the repeated instances of ITT even after the Supreme Court verdict justify the criminalization of ITT. https://t.co/eZIKGWvr71

By that logic, if someone is lodged in jail for rape or murder, who will take care of his family?
The most base, puke-worthy, slippery and regressive argument. So, is this the Congress stand on #TripleTalaqBill? https://t.co/EE3II6mP1n

If we apply this logic, you dunderhead, who takes care of families of every criminal behind bars, congress party? Unbelievably dumb logic! https://t.co/uNPDIcupFE

Some even thought it would be a good idea for Khurshid’s wife to give some basic lessons of decency to her husband.

One wonders whether the newly crowned Congress President Rahul Gandhi endorses these statements.
