New Delhi:

In a shocking incident, Hussain Qureshi, a New York-based Indian techie has divorced his wife in Hyderabad via WhatsApp following family disputes.

Mehreen Noor, the woman who has been divorced said that her husband put ‘Talaq Talaq Talaq’ as his WhatsApp display picture & messaged same saying everything is finished

Mehreen Noor got married to Usman Qureshi, a senior analyst at Seven Heaven Medical Agency in 2015. Her sister-in-law, Heena Fatima, who is married to Usman’s elder brother, Syed Fayazuddin, went through a divorce in a similar manner six months ago.

‘’Husband said this is how it is done these days. How can it be done on WhatsApp? Notice came to house, but I rejected’’, alleged Mehreen Noor.

The two women, who staged a protest outside their in-laws’ house, tried to enter the house but were pushed out by their father-in-law Hafeez. Meanwhile, several women have filed a petition before the Supreme Court seeking the quashing of the triple talaq practice.

However, girl’s mother has to say that this is not the right way to give talaq. Husband should be present in front of the wife and say the words personally. Also, there should be a gap of 40 days between every utterance of talaq. She further informed that the man sent the divorce notice to them and set the triple talaq as his DP.

However, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has defended the practice, saying it is better to divorce a woman than kill her. “The rights bestowed by religion can’t be questioned in a court of law,” it said.
