Surat man gives Triple Talaq to wife after her parents could not give dowry to buy auto rickshaw

The illegal divorce through barbaric practise of Triple Talaq came just a day after the Lok Sabha passed the bill to criminalise triple talaq.

A 23-year-old Muslim woman in Surat has lodged an FIR against her husband accusing him of giving her triple talaq illegally after her parents could not provide him Rs. 40,000 to buy a cycle-rickshaw, reports ANI.

Speaking to the media, the victim woman said that her husband gave her Triple Talaq orally in front of his family, just 40 days after her mother died.

The victim has now lodged a complaint at Chowk Bazar Police Station, senior police officer  PL Chaudhary said.

“The woman said that her in-laws used to torture her physically and mentally. Her husband had asked for a dowry of Rs. 40,000 to buy a cycle-rickshaw, which they didn’t give. After that, she was given death threat and her husband asked her to leave the house after giving her triple talaq,” police officer Chaudhary said.

The illegal divorce through barbaric practise of Triple Talaq came just a day after the Lok Sabha passed the bill to criminalise triple talaq. The practise of Triple Talaq has already been declared as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2019, seeks to criminalize the act of instant divorce among Muslims with a three-year jail sentence for men who practice triple talaq, which has been made illegal by the Supreme Court.
