A woman in Uttar Pradesh's Sambhal lodged a complaint against her husband who allegedly threatened her with triple talaq, after she gave birth to a girl child.
The woman told the police that her husband was planning to marry another woman.
"I got married four years ago and after eight months of my marriage I came back home. They used to beat and harass me for dowry every day. They even tried killing me many a times. The situation became worst when, I gave birth to a girl baby. They didn't want to accept me nor the child and currently now my husband wants to get married again. I want our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minisiter Yogi Adityanath to abolish triple talaq soon," said victim.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently spoke about triple talaq dubbing it as a "bad social practice", saying, such practices can be ended by social awakening. He also stressed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) does not want a conflict in the society for this.
Meanwhile, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) issued an appeal to all maulanas and imams of mosques to read out the code of conduct during Friday 'namaz' and emphasise on its implementation.
The Board has made it clear that it will not tolerate any interference in the Shariat laws, and claimed that majority of the Muslims in the country do not want any change in their personal law.
Earlier this week, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath called for an end to the practice of triple talaq and invoked the disrobing of Draupadi in the Mahabharata to emphasise his point.
