Bareilly: Divorce is a trauamatising ordeal for all parties involved. Usual divorce proceedings take months and sometimes years, especially if the circumstances are less than amicable.
The ‘triple talaq’ tradition has been a long debated and concerning social issue. Perhaps that is why Fayra, a woman from Uttar Pradesh, found herself being attracted to the Modi government’s promise to bring about legislation that would ban the practice of instant triple talaq.
The issue remaining unclear at best, it seems, according to Fayra, that her attending the ‘Dhanyavad Rally’ has resulted in her life being turned on its head.
Fayra alleges that her husband, Dinesh, gave her a triple talaq after she returned from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally. She further alleged that Dinesh had an affair with his aunt which resulted in her (the aunt) bearing a son. She claims that this was the reason why he kept saying he would divorce her, also alleging that he physically assaulted her and her son and threw them out of the house.
“When I came back from rally he said the prime minister can’t do anything to harm him and gave me triple talaq,” she told ANI.
In his defence, the husband said that he did not give her a triple talaw, and claimed that he divorced her because she had an extramarital affair, adding that the divorce had nothing to do with Modi’s rally.
