Daijiworld Media Network - Kundapur (SP)

Kundapur, Sep 9: A woman filed complaint in the town police station here against her husband, who sought to divorce her by means of triple talaq, which was banned recently in the country. The husband was arrested by police. 

It is gathered that this is the first ever triple talaq case to have been registered in Udupi district after the union government amended the act to nullify the method of divorce through utterance of the word, 'talaq' thrice.

The woman, Alfia Akhther (29), has complained against her husband, Haneef Syed (32) from Hiriadka, and his parents, Abbas Sayyed and Jaithoon, as well as her husband's sister, Ayesha.

Alfia said that her marriage with Haneef was solemnized at Moodugopady village on July 4 this year. She said that at the time of marriage, the family of her husband had demanded for payment of dowry amounting to five lac rupees, but her parents could pay only two lac rupees. "Because of this, my husband and his family members used to harass me on a regular basis. On August 15, my husband sought to divorce me by uttering the word ‘talaq’ thrice, she said in her complaint.

The central government had brought amendment to the act and banned triple talaq on July 31 this year. On the basis of the above complaint, case under Muslim Women's Protection of Divorce Rights Act, dowry harassment and family harassment provisions has been registered in the town police station.

    None but a parent or brother would know the pain & suffering of triple talaq not those who are blinded by religion.

    Every Story has 3 Angels - His story , My Story and the Truth. Based on the complaint if police can arrest then it will be dangerous. It should be first proper enquiry and collect the evidence , produce in the court and then he or she should get punishment. If police can arrest basis on the just a simple complain it would destroy the image of victim.

    Dont be bias just think wisely...., Is it only for Muslims or is it applies to all the citizens of India? what if some one doesnot utter Divorece word 3 times and abondon her wife without supporting her monthly expencess? does he will go to jail? or He will be come ?????? do good guess...

    I totally support the ban on triple talak. But the flipside is that now any Muslim woman can lodge a complaint saying the husband said talak 3 times and the men end up in jail. This is just stupid and a cruel joke on men.

    Triple Talaq unfortunately is the misinterpretation of actual sharia law regarding divorce in the subcontinent
    In brief A man or a woman can go for a divorce if they are not happy about the marriage if man initiated it called Talaq and if a woman then it’s Khula
    Both the cases they will be legally divorced however if they feel like they made a mistake or the decision was hasty they can get back together by marrying again
    This divorce and remarriage is applicable max 3 times after which they cannot remarry.
    So in short the third divorce is a final and binding one
    But unfortunately in the sub continent it has been misinterpreted and misused by the male dominant society in their interest
    I am sure many of you have not heard of the womans right for divorce called khula

    Why none is commenting here on men who kick out their wives from their house without divorce. Is this practice acceptable to us and such men should be awarded? Why everyone is dumb on this. Are those women who are kicked out have no right to live. Why none is showing sympathy to them and not fighting for their rights. Why is this partiality. Has humanity died. Shame on all of us.

    I think people misunderstood the recent law on Triple Talaq.
    INSTANT triple talaq is illegal, but one can divorce wife by giving 3 divorces , within a span of 9 months.
    First Talaq with a waiting period of 3 months, and If no patch up he can give second talaq, if he want to continue the married life, remarry again, and final talaq is 3 months after Second Talaq. This is final, and all divorces should be documented, that's only required.

    Like fake rape cases, this law too will be misused, and ultimate suffer will be men.

    @Peacelover India, with all this triple Talaq to put out or divorce the wife,they simply forget feelings to one to another.Only money plays a big role?Heart,compassion ,has nothing to do.Because she didnt bring enough money gold give talaq,bring another with wealthy girl?can she ask her money what she brought during her wedding back?Or get at all?Pity these women.

    We are commenting on the subject over the complaint lodged by first party without knowing its authenticity. Couple of days back a couple caught while robbing in a house in kundapur. The women accompanying was the same women who killed her husband and released on bail. Things are getting exaggerate when similar incidents are taking place on daily basis in the name of domestic violence, divorces, abandoning etc. but media hardly highlight.

    While writng or critzing somone we should clear about of our knowldge, I do keep track of the devolpment of our country, never read anywhere of India as the 2 nd largest economy in the world.The best postion was 6th, which was achived couple of months back and recently slipped to 7th. Probably immediately after monsoon , it may rise again as India is still agrarian country.

    May be story is true or may be conspiracy. But now onwards muslims better to register their marriage in the courts and incase of divorce must be done through courts only to avoid misuse of this law by the wife. Normally when the women started to hate their husband, he will be slapped with triple talaq and dowry case and men will be landed in the jails. Giving high amount MEHR to the girls during the marriage for publicity purpose must be stopped. There are many instances around in recent days, wife dumped husband immediate after marriage and Mehr is not refundable.

    True brother devdas .. actually according to islam a man is not supposed to ask for dowry at all...whereas he has to give mehr money to the wife which the couple have to agree upon...mehr can be a small amount or large but the woman should be in agreement to whatever is being given as mehr...also in Islam even if the woman is earning she cannot be forced to part with her earnings ..but with her free will she wants to support it is her wish...the responsibility of expenses of her food clothing shelter is entirely upon husband.. if all muslims follow Islam properly no issues will arise..it is perfectly just for women..but people choose to follow their whims

    First of all, why did her parents agreed for marriage when groom asked dowry, then if is dowry case then why did she file triple talaq case and if it is triple talaq case, then why case against mother in law and sister in law?? I m not against her, she should get justice but in this case police forced this lady to file multiple section...

    Using legal means to get justice should be appreciated.
    If he wanted Rs5 lacs, he should go to a bank and take a loan, not marry a girl.
    And if FIL and MIL are responsible in giving the illegal TT, they too are party to the case.
    Law would help the lady for her bold and courageous step in approaching the police.

    Indian.... Let me ask same question vice versa... Why did he marry her when he didn't get full amount before marriage? How much expense parents incur to bring up their daughter till their marriage and deliveries... That amount not sufficient? He should happy he got a girl.. Till he said triple talaq...he has not touched her at all??? She gave some amount.. for remaining little amount just throw her out??? Tell me what is her life? Who will remarry her?? Remember girls are not use and throw...

    Dowry harassment law is misused in most of the cases to add punch and settle scores on husband and in-laws. Lawyers suggest their subjects to file such cases in minor disputes.

    Absolutely true. Its the relatives and lawyers who threaten or file dowry harassment case against the whole family. When his aged and sick parents are sent to jail, the son succumbs and pays whatever money is demanded. Happens in all the communities.

    Indian...In Islam bridegroom need to give dowry to bride's parents. In what way husband having right to give talaq on dowry..??? Why not you people follow your religion correctly first. Whereever it find good you modify the same according to your needs. As husband already given talaq..thrice he cannot able to live with his wife together. If by consent both wants to continue as husband and wife.. latter wants to marry and minimum one night shared with him. Is it not a big cruelty on womens...no where seen in another. Are you people only treating wife as just doll. If we stay just for two days with animals bonding started to cultivate...here she after all a human-being..!!

    Who taught you about islam??? RSS or google?? Dear, whatever you wrote is 100% wrong.. first of all there is no dowry in islam, its mehr which is demanded by bride for her security if husband dies or husband divorce her.. and if husband utter talaq thrice, its not talaq, they will be still in marriage, and after talaq if husband wants to marry her again, then she dont need to spend a night with other man or something like that... tell RSS to teach your own religious book, which you still dont know..
