One of Kaushal’s witty tweets is now going viral on Twitter. Swaraj wrote: “Talaaq to de rahe ho nazar-e-kehar ke saath, Jawani bhi meri lauta do mehar ke saath” – a phrase purportedly recited by Meena Kumari in front of her husband Kamaal Amrohi after being given Triple Taraq.

“What an expression of a soul crying for inflicting injustice in the name of religion!” Alok Kumar Chaudhury‏, a Twitter user replied. “Teen talaq is an islamic manly scapegoat to intimidate his wife if she tries to save her fundamental rights of sex at their mutual consents, (sic)” Sanjay Chaudhařy, another user replied. “And ultimately Kamal Amrohi realized his fault and finally laid to rest beside Meena Kumari’s grave !!!” Anand another user replied.

      Now, muslim women must insist upon registering their marriage under special marriage act in addition to Nikahnama, lest the radical moulvis try out some dirty way to subvert the court order.
