Triple Talaq issue: Three months pregnant woman urges PM Modi to abolish practice
Luckow : The Triple Talaq cases are rising every passing day. Another case has emerged in Uttar Pradesh, where a woman in her third month of pregnancy has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi for help. The woman, who is from UP’s Saharanpur, is three months pregnant and has two daughters.
In her message to the Prime Minister, she urges him to bring an end to Triple Talaq - an Islamic tradition, where a man just has to utter the word 'talaq', or divorce thrice in order to leave his wife.
She claims that her in-laws have been pressuring her to abort the fetus. She also alleges that her husband has verbally divorced her and thrown her out of the house.
Apart from her letter to Prime Minister Modi, she has also sent a copy of it to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to apprise him of her situation.
Working on Shagufta's complaint, the Uttar Pradesh police has filed an FIR and has initiated an investigation in the matter. The husband and the relatives are absconding.
However, the Muslim board has requested the Supreme court not to interfere in the Triple Talaq issue.
