Did Modi Snub A Muslim Woman Who Asked About Jashodaben?: A FactCheck

Viral post claims that a Muslim woman asked PM Modi when Jashodaben would get justice.

A Facebook post claiming Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not know how to respond to a question from a Muslim woman about his estranged wife Jashodaben, is false. The image is from an unrelated event and is being shared with a false context.

 

The viral post has used a photograph of the prime minister looking away
while a woman dressed in a hijab appears to be speaking to him
animatedly .

 

The post is a dig at the prime minister who has frequently spoken against the practice of ‘triple talaq’ or instant divorce prevalent within sects of the Muslim community in India.

 

The Hindi text accompanying the post translates to, ‘When a Muslim woman told Modi leave us aside, tell us when will Jasoda Ben get justice, he stood there poker-faced.’
