New Delhi: Shumaila Javed is a national level netball player whose husband gave her triple talaq over phone in Amroha, Uttar Pradesh. The reason for giving triple talaq is not for any crime but for giving birth to a baby girl.
The resident of Amroha, which is 380 km from the state capital of Lucknow, has pleaded with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to look into the matter.
The triple talaq is a practice in which a Muslim husband can divorce his wife by uttering the word “talaq” thrice.
In yet another instance, a 22-year-old woman Afrin, from Shahjahanpur was divorced by her husband via a Facebook post.
Recently, there have been several instances of men giving triple talaq to their wives through social media platforms like Facebook, Whatsapp, or even via a postcard. A couple of these cases are currently being fought at the Supreme Court.
