Varanasi: Muslim women from Varanasi are busy making special rakhis with Prime Minister Modi's image on them. The women said they were grateful to PM Modi for scrapping triple talaq as well as Article 370.

The Ramapura women plan to send these rakhis to the Prime Minister before August 15.

Social worker Sadaf Aalam said that PM Modi had given them a gift by passing a bill against triple talaq and said that the whole nation had been facing problems due to the practice. “He understood the pain of the Muslim women and banned triple talaq. Thus, we are preparing rakhis for the PM and will send it to him soon”, she said.

Speaking on the occasion, Huma Bano said that Kashmir did not feel like a part of India but as Article 370 has been abolished the children, daughters, sisters-in-laws and all women will get equal rights. “They will be able to get education easily. The women in Kashmir can live with a sense of freedom”, she said.

They also said that PM Modi is also Member of Parliament from Varanasi, so they consider him as a brother and believe that he will protect them.
