Lucknow: Just when the Supreme Court is gearing up to hear arguments on Nikah Halala, another victim has come forward saying she was given divorce multiple times and was forced to consummate marriages with several men.

Shabina, who lives in Bareilly, said she received threats that she would be declared an outcast and also threats to her life from “members of her community” after she revolted against the practice.

Narrating her ordeal, she said that her husband had first given her instant talaq. Thereafter, she was forced to marry her father-in-law and consummate the marriage as part of Nikah Halala as she had to marry her first husband again after getting a divorce from her father-in-law.

However, her ordeal did not end there. After marrying her first husband again, Shabina was again given divorce and this time she was being forced to marry her brother-in-law. But this time, she decided enough is enough.

She approached Nida Khan, who had married into the influential Dargah Aala Hazrat family, and the two went to the media to highlight their plight. Nida Khan had also met the same fate as that of Shabina. She was also a victim of triple talaq and has been fighting against it for quite some time.

Both Nida and Shabina have now lodged a case in the local police station against five individuals after receiving death threats.

The two alleged that the local clerics have said that “people who do not follow Shariat are automatically considered out of the Islam” and those who raise their voice against Shariat will face ““dire consequences”.

SP (City) Abhinandan Singh said that a case has been registered. “The orders for investigation have been given,” he said.

Bareilly’s Shekhar Imam Mufti Khurshid Alam said people opining against Shariat and critiquing Halala are doing so to gain media attention.

“Some people are giving statements against Talaq and Halala just to gain media attention. We do not need to throw anyone out of Islam, people who speak against Shariat are automatically considered out of Islam,” said the cleric.

The Supreme Court will hear a batch of petitions challenging Nikah Halala and Polygamy from July 20.

A Muslim man from Jaipur drugged his wife and forced her to sleep with a friend under the pretence of following nikah halala. The 42-year old victim filed a complaint on charges of rape. The nikah halala, according to Muslim Personal laws, dictates that a woman must consummate her marriage with another man if she wants to go back to her former husband, with whom she has been divorced. The victim told HT, that she could not get over the insult and shame that was meted out on her. She expressed her anger and said that her husband had her raped by his friend. “I feel angry, depressed, scared”, she cried.

The woman informed that her husband is also her cousin and had divorced her some 8 months ago. They had been married for 25 years before that. The couple also happens to have two grown up sons. The woman further informs that her husband used to insist her to sleep with his friends despite her refusing repeatedly. She talks about their divorce and says that her denial angered him one day and he gave her a ‘triple talaq’. where this gets interesting though that he still lived with her and had physical relations. “So why the need for halala?”, the woman asks. She talks about the day she was raped and says that her husband took her to his friend’s house for a drive and then drugged her with tablets. After reaching the friend’s house, she was made to swallow more tablets following which she passed out. She says that the next thing she remembered was waking up naked to his friend.

The husband then came into the room as she shouted and warned her not to fuss over it. When the woman went to a police station and the Muslim civil rights campaigners’ to report the case, he showed her a video clip of her in compromising position with his friend. The victim, though, did not pay any attention to these threats and immediately lodged a case of rape and cheating against him and his friend. Even Mohammed Iqbal of the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, a part of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, which is opposing the Uniform Civil Code agreed that since she was not married to the man, it was a case of rape must be punished.
