Guwahati: While the Assam government is considering banning polygamy in the state, All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) chief, Badruddin Ajmal, said that Muslims generally believe in monogamy.
Adding to his statement, he reportedly also said that it is the Hindus who often marry multiple times.
Ajmal also said that the BJP and Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma have made it difficult for Muslims to make a living, so they cannot afford to marry more than once.
