The court made this observation while hearing a
15-year-old divorce case in which the petitioner had claimed
that his assent for `talaq` from his wife was "forcibly" taken
by his in-laws.
Shafiqullah, 45, a resident of Aligarh, had approached
the Shariat court seeking reunion with his 42-year-old wife
Farah, who had been living with his parents for last 15 years.
Shafiqullah had claimed that two years after his
wedding, he was separated from Farah by his in-laws who
forcibly took his signatures on a `talaqnama`.
The Shariat court, which heard both husband and wife,
held that "a talaq given under pressure is not valid and the
couple can be united again".
The couple had contended that their son had turned 16
and wanted his parents be reunited.
