A Muslim woman in Ghaziabad has reportedly announced she would convert to Hinduism as she can’t tolerate the Triple Talaq and Nikah Halala provisions of Islam. Hindi Daily Dainik Jagran reported today that the 25-year-old woman talked to reporters in this regard on Wednesday.
She said that her husband had given Triple talaq to her. After that, he forced her to undergo Nikah Halala and sent her to a friend. When she returned to her husband after three months, he didn’t accept her and instead forced her into prostitution. Under Sharia law, a woman who has undergone a divorce cannot remarry her husband unless she marries another man and the relationship is consummated.
The woman told reporters that in the name of religion, a number of Muslim women have to undergo a lot of suffering. Almost every Muslim woman is facing some sort of torture. They are married off at a young age and then forced to bear children, the report quoted her as saying.
The report said that a local outfit, Jai Shiv Sena has offered help in conversion and support by all means to her.
In a similar incident in Jaipur recently, a Muslim man had drugged his wife and forced her to sleep with a friend under the pretence of following Nikah Halala. The victim had told HT, that she could not get over the insult and shame that was meted out to her. She expressed her anger and said that her husband had her raped by his friend. “I feel angry, depressed, scared”, she cried.
