In an unusual instance of domestic strife between a couple from Bihar , a woman Noori Fatma has alleged that her husband Imran Mustafa gave her triple talaq after she rejected his demand of becoming a ‘modern woman’ and doing things like consuming alcohol, going to parties at night and wearing short clothes, reports PTI.

After their marriage in 2015, the couple had moved to Delhi. In that city, Mustafa allegedly asked her to become like other girls who lived there by doing the same activities which they did.

"When I refused, he started beating me every day. The torture continued for many years. A few days ago he asked me to leave his house and when I refused, he gave me triple talaq," she claimed.

Fatma has now approached the Bihar State Commission for Women and they have registered a complaint. A notice has been communicated to her husband in the matter.

The practice of triple talaq, through which a ban can divorce his wife in Islam just by saying the word talaq thrice, was banned recently through the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage), Act, 2019.
