- Shaikh said she will be happy to visit New Delhi if PM invites
- She has been sending rakhi to PM Modi for over 25 years
New Delhi: Qamar Mohsin Shaikh, a Pakistani woman has sent a rakhi for PM Narendra Modi ahead of Raksha Bandhan. According to a report, Sheikh has been sending rakhi to PM Modi for the past 25 years and she is willing to visit New Delhi if he invites her.
“I get the opportunity to tie rakhi to elder brother once every year, I’m happy. I pray that the next five years go so well for him that the whole world recognizes the positive decisions he made,” she had told news agency ANi last year.
Prior to that, she had hailed the Indian government’s decision to ban triple talaq and said that she would be keen on presenting a painting made by her husband to PM Modi.
No provision for triple talaq in Quran: Shaikh
“There is no provision of instant triple talaq in the Quran and Islam. No other than him could have taken this step (formation of law). He has done a very good job in interests of Muslim women,” she had said while commenting on triple talaq.
She had also lauded the Indian government’s decision to abrogate Article 370 and revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.
Sheikh’s gesture comes at a time when her country has been strongly opposing the Indian government’s decisions in Jammu and Kashmir and has made several futile attempts to garner international attention on the Kashmir issue.
Raksha Bandhan will be celebrated on August 3 this year. As reported earlier by Times Now, women artisans from Varanasi have already sent rakhis to PM Narendra Modi and soldiers posted along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Galwan on the occasion of Rakshabandhan.
