The 25-yr old Afreen Rehman hailing from Jaipur tied the nuptial knot in 2014 through a matrimonial portal. Her in-laws started demanding dowry and mentally harassed her just 2-3 months after her wedding.
"Later they started to beat me and in September my in-laws asked me to leave their place. Thereafter, I came to my maternal home and after some time received a speed post from my husband announcing divorce," Rehman was quoted as saying by Zee News.
Muslim intellectuals, scholars recently urged the All India Muslim Personal Law Board to take corrective measures to stop and prevent the misuse of triple talaq.
The 'triple talaq' -- pronouncing 'talaq' thrice in one instance to divorce wife -- is being exploited and misused by some undesirable elements for their own interests and this needs to be checked by the AIMPLB as it is getting a bad name for the community, the scholars and intellectuals said at a conference organised by the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat here on Monday night.
Shaista Ambar, president All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board (AIMWPLB) has also called for nullifying the triple talaq system.
