"I am clear that on triple talaq I will not be silent. Everything is not about elections," Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday. 

Modi was campaigning in Dhandhuka in Gujarat for the upcoming state elections. 

"This issue is for the rights of women.. elections come later, humanity comes first," Modi added.  

On the anniversary of the Babri Masjid demolition, he mentioned Ayodhya, asking why a solution to the issue should not be found before the 2019 general elections.
