SC to hear plea filed by triple talaq victim tomorrow


New Delhi: The Supreme Court today agreed to hear on Friday a plea of a Muslim woman challenging the Talaq given to her by the husband violation of Supreme Court judgement on Triple Talaq.

32-year old Ruby had approached the top court to declare the Talaq issued by her husband illegal.

The woman said her husband had thrown her out of the house and issued two notices of Talaq in a violation of the top court’s judgement and Triple Talaq ordinance.

A Bench of Indira Banerjee and Justice Sanjiv Khanna said it will hear the case on Friday after the woman’s counsel mentioned the matter for urgent hearing.

The petitioner Ruby Mansoori said, “I request the court to give me justice. Talaq that was given by my husband is illegal. I should be allowed to stay back with him. Where will I go with my kids?”

The 32-year-old alleged that her in-laws used to thrash her for not giving dowry. “They demanded Rs 5 lakh and a car from me, but when I failed to provide it, they threw me out of the house on March 19. After that my husband sent me a divorce notice on March 25,” she said.
