Bareilly (Uttar Pradesh) [India], July 16 (ANI): The Imam of Bareilly's Jama Masjid on Monday issued a fatwa, a ruling on a point of Islamic law, against a woman who had been opposing several Islamic practices, including Triple Talaq, and demonstrating against the same.
The woman, Nida Khan, had been opposing practices such as Triple Talaq, Halala, Bahu Vivah, and so on.
She was the wife of a relative of the Imam and was also a victim of Triple Talaq. She had been fighting for the justice for many other victims of the laws that she had termed 'Non-Islamic'.
"Nida Khan has been ostracised from Islam because she has been regularly speaking against the religion and its practices. A fatwa has been issued against her. No Muslim is to maintain contact with her until she publicly apologises and retracts her anti-Islam stand," said Imam Khurshid Alam while addressing a press conference.
In response, Khan said, "Who are they to oust me from Islam. I will be liable to take this issue directly to the Supreme Court if they try to exploit my constitutional, fundamental human rights. They are trying to spoil my image."
Earlier in the day, a woman from Uttar Pradesh's Shamli filed a complaint with the police, alleging that her husband gave Triple Talaq to her for giving birth to a girl child.
The woman alleged that her husband and in-laws even thrashed her and demanded dowry for giving birth to a baby girl a week ago. (ANI)
