Triple Talaq victim succumbs to injuries after being tortured for a month

177

The Supreme Court has pronounced triple talaq as unconstitutional, yet there are thousands of women who are still suffering on account of misuse of a clause within personal religious laws. The Supreme Court had on August 22 last year struck down triple talaq, calling the practice unconstitutional and in violation of Article 14 of the Constitution, which provides for equality before the law.

The “triple talaq” bill has not been cleared by the Rajya Sabha yet.

In a state of further misery, another triple talaq victim in Uttar Pradesh, who was allegedly thrashed and confined to a room without food for a month by her husband, died on Tuesday, 10 July, during medical treatment .

According to Razia’s sister, the victim, who has a six-year-old child, got divorced from her husband over the phone. Subsequently, she was locked inside the room without any food or water and was thrashed by her husband for dowry.

“After locking her for a month in the house, he left her at a relative’s house. I got her home as soon as I was informed. We went to the police to report the incident. However, the police didn’t register any case,” she said.

Founder of NGO Mera Haq, Farhat Naqvi, told ANI that Razia’s husband Nahim was married before and that he tortured his first wife in the same way.

“Razia was admitted to the district hospital. After that, she was transferred to Lucknow for treatment. However, her condition became critical and was transferred back,” said Naqvi.
