Some people are maintaining a silence on this issue. "This reminds me of the scene in the Mahabharata in which Draupadi is being disrobed and she asks a question to the gathering as to who is responsible for this incident, this sin?"

Politics should be done within the limits of the nation and constitution".

What we have to do is that if there are any scial evils, we have to wake up the society and make efforts to provide justice to them (Muslim women).

President of the All India Muslim Woman Personal Law Board Shaista Amber said, "Talaq should not be compared to disrobing of Draupadi". Triple talaq is wrong, and the also the tendency to remain silent on this issue.

"These men need to be restrained from treating women like a commodity; and a common civil code will instill the fear of law in them; this frivolous law of triple "talaq" is totally anti-women", asserts Alia.
