Even though the Supreme Court has outlawed the practice of instant triple talaq and the Lok Sabha has even passed a bill criminalising the draconian practice, its usage still seems to be continuing en masse.
It was reported by us how things were possibly brazened out when a husband gave his wife triple talaq just a day after the Lok Sabha criminalised the act.
Now ahead of the Parliament session, which might see the introduction of the Triple Talaq bill in the Rajya Sabha, it seems that some husbands have decided to squeeze in their Triple Talaq, before the practice is officially criminalised by law.
It was recently reported how a Husband decided to give triple talaq to his wife, after she asked him to admit their four year old daughter to a school. Apart from this, a woman had alleged that following a dowry dispute her husband gave her triple talaq, and threw her off their house’s roof.
Further, it has been reported that a woman from the Bhiwandi region of Thane, Maharashtra has alleged that her estranged husband sent her triple talaq written on a stamp paper via registered post. She also alleged that her in-laws used to mentally and physically harass her for dowry. In another case, a woman from Barabanki, Uttar Pradesh was allegedly given triple talaq simply because she failed to bear a child, five years after their marriage.
Now in a latest incident, a woman hailing from Uttar Pradesh’s Hapur was allegedly forced to marry her rapist by the village panchayat, after which he gave her triple talaq. The uncle of the victim claimed that she was also mentally tortured after the marriage.
The report claims that the husband took the victim and her father to a deserted place, after which she was forcefully made to put her fingerprints on the divorce papers and later triple talaq was pronounced.
A case has been filed regarding the matter and as per SSP Harpur, Ram Mohan Singh, the matter is being investigated and appropriate action will be taken.
