Prime Minister Narendra Modi has requested the Muslim society not to politicize the Triple Talaq issue.
Saying that discussions are on in this direction, Mr Modi hoped that the issue will be resolved within the Muslim community itself.
Speaking at a function in New Delhi today, he said, it will be good if people will come to resolve the issue on their own.
Mr Modi said, there should be no discrimination in the country. He said, Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas is the motto of his government and government will fulfil promises made to the people without any discrimination. On corruption, Mr Modi said, the corrupt conduct is eating into the very vitals of the democracy.
The Prime Minister was speaking after unveiling translated volumes of Vachana, penned by 12th century social reformer Basavanna and other saints in 23 Indian languages on the occasion of Basava Jayanthi. He also released the digital version of the work at the first ever celebration of Basava Jayanthi at the national level in New Delhi. Speaking on the occasion, Mr Modi said, India’s history is not only about defeat, poverty or colonialism but the country gave the message of good governance, non violence and Satyagraha to the world.
The Prime Minister said, lord Basavanna gave importance to give equal opportunities to women. He said, India has been blessed with greats who have transformed the society.
As per reports, Vachana is a prosaic form well known in the Kannada literature which propagate values of universal brotherhood. This style of writing was used by Basavanna for spreading social awareness and bring equality in the society in the 12th century.
The 23 Vachana volumes, edited by esteemed literary scholar late M M Kalburgi and translated by more than 200 people, was commissioned by the Bengaluru based Basava Samithi at a cost of 2.5 crore rupees of which, the Karnataka government contributed 1 crore rupees. Unveiling of the work by Prime Minister Modi will help spread Basavanna’s ideology and philosophy across the country. The event also coincides with golden jubilee of Basava Samiti, set up by former Vice President B D Jatti in 1964 with an aim to spread Basavannas message across India.
