A woman in Dakshina Kannada district has lodged a complaint with the Sullia police station against her husband for giving her triple talaq over WhatsApp, according to the police. The accused, Abdul Rasheed, is currently employed overseas and the couple has two daughters.
Abdul Rasheed, originally from Thrissur in Kerala, married the woman from Jayanagar in Sullia taluk in Dakshina Kannada district seven years ago. The couple had moved abroad two years ago, but Abdul had left his wife in Sullia during her second delivery.
Triple talaq is a controversial divorce practice in certain Islamic countries, where a husband can verbally divorce his wife saying the word “talaq” three times. This practice has received significant criticism for its impact on women’s rights and has been banned in several countries.
The woman has sought legal action against her husband, stating that the triple talaq has caused her immense mental and emotional distress. She has also expressed concern for the well-being and future of their two daughters.
The complaint has prompted the police to investigate the matter further. They will also be consulting legal experts to ensure that the woman receives proper support and justice.
This incident highlights the need for stricter laws and awareness campaigns to protect women from arbitrary divorce practices. It also emphasizes the importance of providing legal and emotional support to victims of such practices.
As this case unfolds, it serves as a reminder of the ongoing struggle for gender equality and the need for societal change to eliminate discriminatory practices against women.
