Hardly 10 days after his wedding, an NRI man from Kerala has sent his 21-year-old wife a tripple Talaq message from Dubai on WhatsApp. The shocked woman, a BDS student and hailing from Chertala in Alappuzha district, has now approached the Kerala Women’s Commission for help.
The young woman in her complaint said her husband had not even informed her if he had reached Ber Dubai, where he is working, safely. After her repeated messages to him went unanswered, she finally got a reply shocking her to the core.
“Why are you calling me? I do not like you. Do not wait for me. If we like apple, will we keep eating it every day?. We will like to eat other fruits also. Talak Talak Talak”, the woman, who was at her wit’s end seeing the message, told the Commission, its member J Prameela Devi said.
She wants her husband to be tracked and Non-Residents Affairs department has been asked to trace him, Prameela Devi said. Prameela Devi said she spoke to Panakkad Sadik Ali Thangal, an Islamic scholar, who was of the opinion that this type of talaq was against rules.
