Home News Reports After talaq, Muslim woman forced to have halala with father in law, demand law banning nikah-halala

After talaq, Muslim woman forced to have halala with father in law, demand law banning nikah-halala

In a shocking incident in Bareilly, few years after a man allegedly forced his wife to go through halala with his father after the talaq, he again forced her to go through halala with his younger brother. Nikah-halala is a practice of a divorced woman having to consummate the marriage with another man and then getting a divorce from him before remarrying her previous husband.

As per reports, in 2011, two years after getting married in 2009, Wasim Hussain gave talaq to his wife, Shabina for the first time. After begging him to take her back, he relented on condition that she undergoes halala with his father (get married to his father, consummate the marriage and then divorce him). But things didn’t end there. Last year, Hussain again gave talaq to Shabina. This time, after talaq, he asked Nida to have halala with his younger brother, but Shabina decided to take a stand and not be a part of the humiliation.

Aala Hazarat Helping Society head Nida, along with three dozen other Muslim women, held a press conference yesterday where they talked about the ordeals and atrocities carried out by their husbands under the guise of triple talaq. The women have also demanded a female Kaazi (a judge or magistrate of a Sharia court). Another victim, Nisha, said she got married to Anwar in 1999, but was given talaq in 2009 and forced her to go through nikah-halala with his friend, following which he abandoned her.

The women now seek legal course for justice. The women seek law banning the triple talaq, halala and polygamy. According to Nida, Muslim women could get justice only with strict laws. She raised questions against the fatwas issued by maulvis and said how they are usually misogynist and anti-women. Only with a stricter implementation of laws can the atrocities against women under the guise of shariat could stop, said Nida.
