Hyderabad Woman Given Triple Talaq On Phone Seeks Sushma Swaraj’s Help
Months after a woman from Old City was divorced over phone, she took to Twitter and sought justice from foreign minister Sushma Swaraj.
Ghousia Begum, 31, from Errakunta in Pahadeeshareef was married to Zahran Hamed Al Rajhi, a resident of Nizwan, Oman, in 2008 at Barkas in Hyderabad.
“My husband who resides in Oman called me over the phone on August 15 and pronounced talaq without any prior notice or due procedure as per Islamic laws. There is no one to look after me and my mother after my father passed away. We need help,” Ghousia said.
On Tuesday, Ghousia put an appeal before minister of external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj through a video that was posted on Twitter.
The 31-year-old also sent a written application to Swaraj seeking her help in getting compensation from her Oman-based husband. The email to Swaraj was sent along with a photograph of the couple on their wedding day and her husband’s identity proof.In the email, Ghousia alleged that out of the seven girls who were presented to the old Omani national, he selected her for marriage and also promised to buy her a house worth 10 lakh in Hyderabad.Having lost her father recently, Begum has no one to look after her and her mother. Also, she has not been given a proper Talaq certificate either. Hence she has appealed to the Indian Embassy in Muscat, Oman, to inquire by summoning the Omani Sheikh to the Indian Embassy and settle her issue”Ever since we got married, he visited Hyderabad every year and sent me money regularly. But in August this year I received a call from him and he pronounced “talaq” without giving any prior notice or following due Islamic procedure,” Ghousia said.
When Ghousia approached her relatives who had mediated the marriage, she said that they were of no help. “They were rude and asked me to marry another Arab,” she said.
