Triple Talaq has inarguably become one of the most talked about topics in the Indian society of late. On one hand the All India Muslim Personal Law board is vehemently opposing any action to abolish the practice, and on the other hand various women groups have been calling for making it illegal.
As this face-off continues, more and more instances of this practice are coming to light, which show the practice is indeed proving to be a bane for women.
In on such case from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh, a 35 year old women has opened up about her plight of being given triple talaq in three of her past marriages and is now afraid that her fourth marriage too might end up following the same fate.
The woman named Tara Khan, who is the resident of Tahaka Nagaria village, has claimed that her first marriage lasted for 7 years after which her husband gave her triple talaq to marry a younger woman as they failed to have kids.
What further worsened her plight was that two subsequent marriages yielded her abusive husbands who used to assault her and ended up giving her triple talaq. These marriages lasted 3 years and 4 months respectively. In her fourth marriage, she and her husband have been going to a counselling center, to sort out their marital issues.
She reportedly stated that she wants her existing husband to keep her and if need arose, she would seek the help of Prime Minister Modi or Chief Minister Yogi.
Another incident regarding Triple Talaq has emerged from Bahraich in Uttar Pradesh. In this case, a man has been accused of giving triple talaq to his three wives and has also been accused of serious allegations like rape of a minor and blackmail.
Reportedly all the three women together went to the police station and complained against a man named Danish who is a resident of Kanungopura.
They claimed that Danish first married in 2013 and after his marriage allegedly made an objectionable video of his wife in order to extort money from her family members in exchange of not leaking the video. As claimed by them, he later gave her triple talaq and married another woman and did the same with her. They further allege that Danish then proceeded to forcibly marry an underage girl and gave her the same treatment.
When all the three women came to know about his plans to marry the fourth time, they put forth the whole matter in front of police. Local police inspector has reportedly stated that Danish would be booked under rape of a minor and the sections of the POSCO act.
