Back On The Plate

As  the 2019 Lok Sabha polls loom large, the BJP has broken a habit set by PM Modi in 2014 of not holding an official Iftaar party. The party has, however, given it a twist. Union minister for minority aff­airs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi—the cabinet’s lone Muslim—was given the green light to hold the Iftaar but only for single Muslim women, mainly victims of triple talaq.
