It’s appreciable that women of Islam community raising their voice against Triple Talaq and domestic violence at-least in 21st century.
At Bareilly, forty women have sent Rakhis to Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adithyanath Ji demanding justice. Women who went through triple talaq and domestic violence made the decision to send a Rakhi to CM in order to get justice. These women claim to be “Sisters of nation” and say that CM should fulfil the responsibility of a brother by ensuring justice to them as soon as possible. They stated that they have been suffering for years and want yogi to them urgently.
Esha khan, 22, main lead of those women who went through triple talaq few months back, has sent a yellow colored Rakhi to the CM. She said, “Tired of facing harassment from my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, one day I complained to my husband about them. However, instead of helping me, he got angry at me and uttered the three dreaded words. My two and half year marriage ended badly.”
Adding to it, “BJP had promised before elections that it would help women like me. Through my Rakhi, I want to remind the CM about his promise.” She said.
Nazrath Kisa, who went through domestic violence, said, “I had been waiting for justice since December 2016. As my husband and his family were disappointed with me for not bringing dowry, they would often physically assault me. Even when I was pregnant, the trashing continued and it resulted in my miscarriage. I somehow managed to survive and I am now seeking action against them. As a sister of the nation, I have asked yogi to ensure the justice as my Rakhi present.”
Farahna, 27, said, “I was given triple talaq in May 2015 after I gave birth to a daughter. My husband wanted a boy. After my delivery, he divorced me and shifted to Saudi. His family threw me and my daughter out. When I approached them again, my mother-in-law asked me to do ‘Nikah halala’ with my brother-in-law which was unacceptable to me. On the occasion of this Raksha Bandhan, I want Yogi Ji fulfil the justice,”
On Friday, with the help of a local NGO named “Mera Haq” foundation, these women sent a Rakhis to Yogi.
Farah Naqwi, president of the NGO “Mera Haq” claimed that, “Most of these women have lodged an FIR against them with the help of local police. But, they are being pressured by their family to take their complaints back. They have received numerous threats. They are scared for their lives as have not been provided security by police. Besides, most of them have nowhere to go. These women want justice and safety and that is why, they have sent Rakhis to Yogi.”
Women have been suffering from Domestic violence and triple talaq in a need of justice badly. Assaulted by their own family, they are now in a terrible situation where no-society could bravely fight for several issues of Islam.
Women must be independent first before their marriage. Having an economic stability, however, they could manage to survive with a strong base of confidence.
