Shagufta, a mother of two girls alleged that she was abandoned by her husband Shamshad Shah when she refused to give in to her in-laws' demand of aborting her third child. "My husband and my in-laws wanted me to abort this child. I have got two daughters and they feared that it would be a girl again," she said in her letter.

She added that her refusal to abort the child was perceived as defiance. She was subjected to physical abuse by her husband but she refused to abort her child. Her husband later pronounced Talaq thrice, leaving the woman to fend for herself. "I was subjected to violence and one fine day, my husband verbally divorced me uttering 'talaq' thrice. I was thrown out of the house," she wrote.
