Ishrat Jahan tying Rakhi to PM Modi was the moment of Raksha Bandhan

She, however, lamented that she could not hand over the container of 'rosogolla' that she had got for the Prime Minister from Kolkata

Ishrat Jahan, one of the key petitioners in the Triple Talaq Case, tied a rakhi on the wrist of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday and thanked him on behalf of muslim sisters for making the Islamic practise illegal.

Qamar Mohsin Shaikh also praised PM Modi for criminalising the practice of instant 'Triple Talaq', declaring "he has done a very good job in interests of Muslim women".

"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," said Qamar Mohsin Shaikh, after meeting the Prime Minister.

"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," Mohsin Shaikh, a Pakistani national who came to India after her marriage, added.

Qamar Mohsin Shaikh also had a surprise gift for PM Modi - a painting made by her husband.

"(I have) known him since the time he was a Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) worker. There has been no difference in his behaviour. It is just that he has got busy so we get less time, apart from that everything else is same," Qamar Mohsin Shaikh had said after tying a rakhi last year.
