Triple talaq was not a religious issue but related to "social ills", Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said today, stressing that the ongoing debate on the practice would have a "positive" impact on the people. "It is about social ills and reform," the minister of state for minority affairs said. He said the debate would have a "positive bearing on the (Muslim) community and the country".
