"Our government has made its stand very clear on triple talaq. If necessary, it will bring a legislation against it.. after allowing the community to reach a consensus through deliberations," said Mr Naidu on the margins of a campus event in Bengaluru.
Mr Naidu's remarks came days after the Supreme Court on Thursday reserved its verdict on multiple petitions on the constitutional validity of the practice of a Muslim man divorcing his wife by pronouncing the word talaq thrice in one instance. A section of Muslim women have opposed the practice.
Asserting that the community itself should come forward towards ending the practice, Mr Naidu said like the Hindus, Muslims too should put an end to such social evils.
