A 26-year-old woman from Uttar Pradesh said that she was beaten up and given talaq after she gave one or two packets of Namkeen which were brought at home. The woman met Uttar Pradesh minister of state for food and supplies and said that she was given triple talaq for a trivial matter. The woman met Atul Garg, the minister during ‘janata darbar’ which is held at Kavi Nagar residence on Sunday.
The woman said that she gave one or two packets of Namkeen to her parents as they lived close to their home. The packets of namkeen were brought by his husband who got frustrated with this and threw her out of the house by uttering talaq thrice.
Here is what the minister said,
“She came with her family members and explained the harassment she was subjected to and about being given ‘talaq’ by her husband. She also raised apprehension of an attack by her husband and his brothers if she moved court. However, we asked her to file a case in the matter and assured that the administration will provide her proper security,”
The woman was thrown out of home along with her three-year-old child. The woman and the kid are living at her parent’s house since Saturday night. The woman’s father said that her daughter’s husband has been demanding money since they got married.
“When Hindu women come to us for help in such matters, we call up police to help them out. However, we have no such way for Muslim women. I hope their religious leaders come up with some solution to sort out such issues so that women do not face such issues,” Garg added.
The minister has asked the woman to file a complaint with police on the same matter.
