In the first case, a Hyderabadi woman named Heena got married to Fayazuddin Hussain in February 2013.
Later, she received divorce papers from her husband staying in the US.
Mehreen was married to Hussaini's brother Mohammad Abdul Aqueel.
Heena and Mehreen decided to fight back against the discriminatory practice of unilateral talaq.
Heena and Mehreen discussed the issue in an interview with TV9 as reported by NDTV.
Heena stated, "I have two children, who will take care of them? Sharia law lets you divorce me, but who is going to look after our children? Doesn't Sharia law ask you to take care of your children?"
She explained, "After marriage, I found out that my husband's name is Usman Qureshi. And now, without reason, he sent me a divorce notice. They have made marriage into a joke. What is my fault? He has to tell me the reason. He can't say Talaq over WhatsApp."
Mehreen, a resident of Moghulpura, was thrown out of her in-laws' house in the last week of February after receiving WhatsApp message of three words 'Talaq, Talaq, Talaq' from her husband.
Moghulpura inspector R. Devender stated, "Mehreen has been staying with her in-laws at Moghulpura and in the last week of February, she received a WhatsApp message from Usman saying "Talaq Talaq Talaq". Subsequently, in-laws shunted Mehreen out of their house and she lodged a complaint with us on February 27. The family members of Usman claimed that he had also sent talaq notice through email. But, Mehreen has not received any talaq documents and the talaq over WhatsApp is not valid."
All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board (AIMWPLB) appealed for a ban on Triple Talaq issue and also demanded a fair trial of unilateral talaq cases. IMWPLB President Shaista Amber explained, "Quran says there must be time for reconciliation between partners. It says when a man gives talaq he must pause and consult his wife. Otherwise, triple talaq is like a hanging dagger for Muslim women."
Currently, Supreme Court is discussing the verdict of Triple Talaq.
