Husband Gives Triple Talaq, Wife Sits on Dharna Outside Home in Aligarh

In a fresh written submission filed before the apex court, the government has reiterated its earlier stand and said these practices render Muslim women “unequal and vulnerable” as compared to men of their community as well as women belonging to other communities.

Aligarh: A woman is sitting on a dharna outside her home here after her husband pronounced Triple Talaq and refused to let her enter the house.

Married for more than five years, Rehana said that she came to know from her neighbours that her husband gave her Triple Talaq.

Rehana said, “I want to go in. I will die but won't leave from here until I am taken in."

Meanwhile, the victim’s father alleged that her in-laws started demanding money after three years of marriage.

“My daughter was married five years ago. After three years, they started asking for money. I gave them Rs 10 lakh in cash. I had spent Rs 40 lakh on the marriage ceremony. When my daughter came here, she saw the preparations for another marriage,” said girl’s father.

The police have said they will make both parties sit and only after that will know what the matter is.

“The man is not taking his wife inside his residence. Once we will make both the parties sit and talk only then we will get to know what the matter is. We haven't been able to get in touch with the boy’s family,” said Kumar Verma, Inspector, Civil Lines Police Station.

Triple Talaq has been controversial with petitions in the Supreme Court demanding its abrogation.

According to reports, Rehana was staying at her mother's house for a year as her husband refused to take her home.

Finally, on Wednesday, she turned up at her husband's house and sat on a dharna.

Police were called in but both sides could not find a solution.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Centre told the Supreme Court that the practices of ‘triple talaq’, ‘nikah halala’ and polygamy impact the social status and dignity of Muslim women and deny them fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution.

In a fresh written submission filed before the apex court, the government has reiterated its earlier stand and said these practices render Muslim women “unequal and vulnerable” as compared to men of their community as well as women belonging to other communities.

The apex court had on March 30 observed that practices of ‘Triple Talaq’, ‘Nikah Halala’ and polygamy among Muslims were important issues involving “sentiments” and a Constitution bench would hear the pleas challenging these from May 11.​
