Making his anger clear over those remaining mum over triple talaq, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that those silent on the issue were equally guilty. Speaking at an event in Lucknow Yogi Adityanath on Monday said, "A debate is going on nowadays and the silence on the issue reminds me of Draupadi's Cheerharan. I am surprised over the silence."
The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister quoting the Mahabharata said that much like those who kept mum during Draupadi's disrobing, those silent over triple talaq were equally guilty. He was at an event to release a book on late politician Chandrashekhar and said that the former Prime Minister was also for Uniform civil code.
Yogi Adityanath's statements come a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked party workers especially the BJP Mahila Morcha to empathise with the victims of triple talaq.
