Wednesday, January 31, 2018
Jihad Watch : Women’s rights in Islam: the village Muslim leaders forced the rape victim to marry her rapist. Then he divorced her by saying “talaq”

the feminists? Too busy marching against Trump to notice this sort of
“Woman forced to marry her rapist by the village panchayat, later gets Triple Talaq,” OpIndia, January 29, 2018:
Even though the Supreme Court has outlawed the practice of instant triple talaq and the Lok Sabha has even passed a bill criminalising the draconian practice, its usage still seems to be continuing en masse. It was reported by us how things were possibly brazened out when a husband gave his wife triple talaqjust a day after the Lok Sabha criminalised the act.
Now ahead of the Parliament session, which might see the introduction of the Triple Talaq bill in the Rajya Sabha, it seems that some husbands have decided to squeeze in their Triple Talaq, before the practice is officially criminalised by law. It was recently reported how a Husband decided to give triple talaq to
his wife, after she asked him to admit their four year old daughter to a
school. Apart from this, a woman had alleged that following a dowry
dispute her husband gave her triple talaq, and threw her off their house’s roof.
Further, it has been reported that a woman from the Bhiwandi region of Thane, Maharashtra has alleged that her estranged husband sent her triple talaq
written on a stamp paper via registered post. She also alleged that her
in-laws used to mentally and physically harass her for dowry. In
another case, a woman from Barabanki, Uttar Pradesh was allegedly given triple talaq simply because she failed to bear a child, five years after their marriage.
Now in a latest incident,
a woman hailing from Uttar Pradesh’s Hapur was allegedly forced to
marry her rapist by the village panchayat, after which he gave her triple talaq. The uncle of the victim claimed that she was also mentally tortured after the marriage.
The report claims that the husband took the victim and her father to a
deserted place, after which she was forcefully made to put her
fingerprints on the divorce papers and later triple talaq was pronounced.
