Uttar Pradesh: Muslim man gives Triple Talaq to his wife for being fat

The woman, Shahin, has registered a complaint with the Police over the matter.

A woman from Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh has alleged that her husband has divorced through the Islamic practice of Triple Talaq because of her obesity. She claims that her husband accused her of being fat and not good enough for him before giving her Triple Talaq.

The woman, Shahin, has registered a complaint with the Police over the matter. She has further claimed that her in-laws threw her out of the house. According to her, whenever she visits her in-laws with her child, they physically assault her and turn her out of the house.

She also claims that her husband is in a relationship with another woman who is apparently slender. Shahin met the SP on Monday and narrated the entire series of events. The Police has reportedly registered an FIR in the matter. Further investigation is underway.

Similar events have occurred in the past as well. In Madhya Pradesh last year, Arif Hussain Dewan was arrested for giving triple talaq to his wife claiming she is obese. He reportedly tortured his wife for being obese. The wife had to flee to her brother’s residence, unable to bear the mental and physical abuse she was allegedly subjected to.

Efforts to ban the oppressive practice of Triple Talaq through law has been one of the primary agendas of the NDA government. The Triple Talaq Bill was recently tabled in the Lok Sabha, however, it faced stiff opposition from the Opposition. During its first term as well, the NDA succeeded in passing the Bill in the Lok Sabha. However, it failed to pass in the Upper House of the Parliament.
