Nikah Halala case: Muslim woman who moved Supreme Court claims death threats
The woman, Farzana, had claimed in her petition that she had been illegally divorced by her husband, leaving her and their daughter without any means of living or financial support.
A Muslim woman from Uttar Pradesh's Sikandrabad, who had filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking abolition of Nikah Halala practice earlier this month, today alleged that she has received death threats from her husband.
"From the day I have filed the petition my husband has been pressuring me to withdraw it and has even threatened to kill me. He has also told me that going to the Supreme Court will not help me and I will be forced to do halala," Farzana told reporters here.
