Meerut: Amid the raging debate over triple talaq, a Muslim woman, hailing from Uttar Pradesh's Meerut, claimed her husband wrote the three words in a letter to divorce her.
The distressed woman refused to accept the 'divorce letter' calling it invalid and accused the police of not acting against her husband even after her repeated complaints.
Notably, PM Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath have advocated for the rights of Muslim women and called for the abolition of the triple talaq and nikah halala.
Several women have filed a petition before the Supreme Court seeking the quashing of the triple talaq practice.
