President of All India Shia Chand Committee opposed

Javed Akhtar’s statement said that if a husband keeps many wives, then the woman should also get this right. Saif Abbas Naqvi countered on this. No matter how much it is opposed, it is less. Some such people in India give blatant statements in the media, so that they remain in the media. I think the women of our country should protest strongly against this statement.

Saif Abbas Naqvi said that through this statement he has attacked the culture of our country. You see, any woman, no matter how bad her husband is, he tortures her, even then the woman never thinks of getting married again. She wants to perform the same marriage. Even after the atrocities, such women work to save their character. It is regrettable to give advice like this out there. It is condemnable.
