Smart woman

For too long many (muslim) men have gotten away very easily ater saying "Talaaq" three times. One smart woman in Ghaziabad has tamed her dumb husband. I came across the following news item in a website.

A woman has refused to accept her husband’s decision to divorce her by sending a letter with the word “talaq” written thrice.

Farzana, who has been living with her parents here for the past four months, said she has not read the letter sent by her husband Siraj. “So talaq cannot be accepted.”

Superintendent of police Ashfaq Ahmad, who is also chairman of the family disputes settlement committee where the case is being heard, said if Farzana had read the letter, the marriage would have been annulled.

But if any other member of the family saw the letter and told her about its contents, it would have no effect.

Siraj had reportedly sent Rs 2,250 as the meher or alimony for Farzana along with the letter on June 2.

I agree Prabhu but this is like a moral victory for her...not giving that guy what he wanted.
I, one can count on you to give "vaazhkai" to women.:-)

She'd make a good lawyer...she seems to know the law and its loophole.

I don't think thats the Muslim law just writting or saying Talaq for three times, they have to wait certain amount of time between talaqs...
