THE Uttar Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will soon be appointing about 100 women as ‘teen talaq pramukhs’ across the State to ensure rehabilitation of the victims and their children, a party leader said on Sunday. Nazia Alam, Secretary of UP Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) minority wing, who will be the overall in-charge, said triple talaq pramukhs will be appointed for each of the 93 ‘organisational districts’ and six regional units of the BJP party in the State.

“Educated women who have sound knowledge of Shariat and law and who can bring a social change in the lives of the victims of triple talaq will be appointed as pramukhs,” Alam told PTI.

“We will also seek information from the victims as to what do they actually need, be it education and health-related needs for their children or employment-related things for themselves,” she said.  Nazia further said that the minority wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party will also  launch awareness campaigns to dispel the wrong notions surrounding the holy Quran and Shariat.
