While arguing for an equal share of the property for wives, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma also stated that a Muslim man should marry only one woman.

Further, instead of the ‘Talaq,’ Sarma endorsed the notion of a legal divorce in the community.

During a press conference on Wednesday, the chief minister said, “Assam government is very clear that no Muslim man should marry three women. Don’t give Talaq, give divorce legally. An equal share of the property should be given to daughters like sons. Give 50 per cent share of the property to the wife. Views of the government and the common Muslims are same.”

Further, he stated that racial discrimination among northeastern students has decreased as a result of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s approach.

“If you look at the last 2-3 years, because of PM Narendra Modi’s huge outreach to the northeast now racial discrimination against students of the northeast has suddenly gone down to a huge extent,” he said.
