Samajwadi Party MP who compared actresses to ‘tawaif’ says triple talaq ‘better’ than setting your cheating wife on fire

"If a man comes home and sees his wife with another man, then he will get angry. In that anger it is better he give her a triple talaq instead of burning her to death," Samajwadi Party MP ST Hasan.

As the bill to ban Triple Talaq is being taken up for consideration and passage in the Lok Sabha today, the controversial Samajwadi Party MP from Moradabad, ST Hasan made a shocking statement. As reports, Hasan said that if a man comes home and sees his wife with another man, then he will get angry. In that anger it is better he give her a triple talaq instead of killing her or burning her to death.

He even said that the Government should not interfere with it as it is an internal matter of religion. He added that a small sect who are followers of Abu Hanifa practice Triple Talaq. However, the decision of whether or not Triple Talaq should be followed should be left on the girl and her parents if the nikah receipt states that the boy’s side are followers of the sect, he said.

Though he mentions that he is against the practice, Hasan tries to evoke the ‘minority card’ by asking why a Muslim should be imprisoned for three years and others just for a year? Is this justice? he asked. Opposing the bill the SP MP asked how a husband can provide remuneration if he is in jail?

The criminality clause in the bill provides for 3-year-imprisonment and remuneration from the man who gives Triple Talaq to the wife.

Notably, ST Hasan is the same MP who had earlier stoked controversy by comparing actress to a ‘tawaif’. Speaking on the Zaira Wasim controversy, Hassan had then endorsed Wasim’s decision to quit films because it interfered in her faith.
