Threatened with triple talaq for giving birth to a girl, woman seeks justice from Modi and Yogi

Ever since the law commission put out a questionnaire [PDF] asking for people’s feedback on Uniform Civil Code (UCC), religious practices like Triple Talaq and polygamy have been in the news.

Every other day news reports emerge about women asking for justice after getting divorced via Triple Talaq for assorted reasons. Just last week we had reported how a 90 year old man had given Triple Talaq to his 80 year old wife in 2013, in a fit of anger. He soon came to regret his decision but the route to their remarriage went through the practice of Nikah Halala in which his wife needed to marry another person, consummate her marriage and take talaq only after which would she be able to remarry him.

Now another case of triple talaq has emerged from Sambhal, Uttar Pradesh where a woman has alleged that her husband threatened her with talaq for giving birth to a girl.

The woman in question was reportedly married 4 years ago and after living with her husband for 8 months she returned to her parents’ home. She alleged that she used to be harassed at the home of her in-laws which sparked her decision to return to her parents.

Later she gave birth to a girl which annoyed her husband. After she had returned to her parent’s home, her husband started to plan his second marriage and now doesn’t want to live with her and has threatened her with talaq. The woman has appealed to PM Modi and CM Yogi to ensure justice for her in this matter.

A police official at Hayatnagar police station in Sambhal stated that as per a complaint, the victim while she was living with her parents was beaten up by her husband, his brother and his father. One person has been arrested in this regard.

One relative of the victim also gave his account. He claimed that a few months after the victim’s marriage, her husband started harassing her for dowry and also claimed that she was harassed by her mother-in-law and sister-in-laws. He also claimed that her husband ostracized her from his home after she gave birth to a girl. He appealed for justice to be meted out to her so that her life can be settled again.
