National Level player gets Triple Talaq on phone.. approaches CM Yogi seeking Justice

Another shameful case of Triple Talaq has come to light in Uttar Pradesh. National Netball player Shumaila Javed first received a talaq message on Facebook from her husband. Her husband caller her after sending the Facebook message & said ‘talaq’ thrice over the phone. This incident is shameful because Shumaila was given talaq for giving birth to a girl child. Shumaila is currently staying with her parents. Her husband’s house is in the city of Amroha which is located at a distance of 380 Km from Lucknow.

Shumaila had given birth to a daughter on 15 May 2015. Her husband Farooq Ali was very angry with the birth of the girl and started torturing her. On 8th February 2016 Farooq Ali called Shumaila on the phone & gave her talaq. Shumaila is presently taking care of her daughter. She is residing at her father’s place after the talaq.

She tried approaching the police but did not receive any support from them. Shumaila has now approached CM yogi Adityanath to get justice. Shumaila also claimed that she was a constant subject to physical & mental abuse from her husband after the birth of their daughter. She claims that her husband got a sex determination test done & after finding out that Shumaila would be delivering a girl, he sent her to her mother’s house.

Shumaila says that after the delivery of their daughter on May 15, 2015 at a local Moradabad hospital, she was ill-treated & abused by her husband. On 24 January 2016 she returned to her husband’s house where she was beaten & abused and once again sent to her mother’s house. Shumaila is seeking help from UP CM Yogi Adityanath in this matter. CM Yogi had spoken against Triple Talaq earlier and stressed for a common civil code. The practice of triple talaq has already been banned in more than 20 Muslim countries.
