AbstractIn this present paper, a slowly rotating stat is investigated in shift symmetric scalar torsion theory framework using a nondiagonal tetrad that gives an axially symmetric spacetime. We present the general equations for a general Lagrangian in a spherical symmetric space time and then in an axially symmetric spacetime. The obtained equations will allow us to study the behaviour of a specific model at the center of the star and at large distance. We find that this particular model

The integration of the equations of motion, for different realistic equations of state (EoS), confirms that the mass, the radius as well as the moment of inertia are effected by varying the parameters of the model. Finally, we examine the universal relation of normalized moment of inertia and the stellar compactness of neutron star in slow rotation approximation. We showed that for all values of parameters present in the model leads to a deviation from GR for all EoS with a relative deviation below $$10\%$$ 10 % .
