Home News Reports Muslim clerics issue fatwa to stone Nida Khan if she doesn't leave the country within 3 days

Muslim clerics issue fatwa to stone Nida Khan if she doesn’t leave the country within 3 days

A group of Muslim clerics, All India Faizan-e-Madina Council from Bareilly has reportedly issued a fresh fatwa against the activists Nida Khan and Farhat Naqvi. The clerics have also announced a cash reward of Rs. 11,876 for anybody who chops her hair. She has also said that a fatwa has been issued that if she doesn’t leave the country within 3 days, she will be attacked with stones.

Farhat Naqvi and Nida Khan, along with her associates of the NGO Mera Haq, have been championing the cause against Triple Talaq. The NGO headed by Farhat Naqvi gives moral and legal assistance to Muslim women, who are victims of Triple Talaq and Nikah Halala.

Farhat was divorced by her husband for giving birth to a girl child. Farhat then founded an NGO called ‘Mera Haq’ in 2014 to fight for justice for triple talaq victims and against domestic violence. The Supreme Court judgement banning instant triple talaq brought to an end the 11-year long struggle of Farhat Naqvi against the practice.

Nida Khan said, ”A fatwa has been issued against me, which says whosoever brings chopped hair of Nida Khan will be rewarded with an amount of Rs 11,786”. Nida Khan also said that she has been threatened to leave the country in the next three days or she will be stoned.

Nida Khan, unafraid of these fatwas issued by the clerics, intends to meet Prime Minister Modi and request him to take action against those who issue such fatwas. ”These people issuing such fatwas should be stopped. I will take a proper appointment to meet PM Modi and will appeal to him about it,” she said.

The fresh threat to Nida Khan comes after Bareilly court on Wednesday declared the instant triple talaq given to Nida Khan by her husband Sheeran is invalid. The court had also rejected his petition seeking a stay on the domestic violence case filed against him by Khan.

Nida Khan, sharing her story said that she was forced to sleep, consummate the marriage with her father-in-law and brother-in-law, under the Islamic practice of ‘Nikah Halala’, so that her husband could marry her again.  She grabbed headlines when she went to the Supreme Court to challenge the triple talaq given by her husband.

The campaigning against the evil practices like triple talaq and Nikah halala has not received well by several Muslim clerics. They have now resorted to unconstitutional fatwas to threaten the activists from continuing their work.
