Triple talaq victims should become Hindus: Hindu Mahasabha leader

In a first, Hindu Mahasabha Secreatary, Dr. Pooja Shakun Pandey invites muslim women to convert into hinduism.

In a statement that probably could create bizarre, Hindu Mahasabha Secretary, Dr Pooja Shakun Pandey invited Muslim women to convert into Hinduism.

Pooja Shakun Pandey said, "I am ready to fight for my Muslim sisters. I want to declare that if you my Muslim sisters are feeling insecure, then be assured that I will help you. If the government of the state or the judiciary delayed providing you justice and your rights, I invite you to adopt Hinduism. It would be my pleasure to secure your future, I will make all arrangements and definitely do your kanyadan for sure".

Nikah Halala is a practice as per the Sharia law (followed by Muslims) that prohibits a divorced couple from remarrying unless the former wife has married a different man, consummated the marriage, and then divorced him.

India is home to world's third-largest Muslim population which is governed by the Sharia or Islamic jurisprudence and this has been the case since British colonial rule. But till today, India's 90 million Muslim women face the threat of a sudden, oral, and out-of-court divorce.
