Atiya Sabri, UP’s three-time Talaq petitioner wins the upkeep battle, urges extra ladies to hitch the combat India Information

New Delhi: A family court in Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur has ordered the estranged husband of Atiya Sabri, one of the six petitioners at the Supreme Court, against the instant triple Talaq to pay her monthly alimony of 21,000 rupees.

In a great victory for Atiya, the court also ordered her husband, Wajid Ali, to pay her 13.4 lakh arrears, as the case was filed five years ago. The duo has two daughters.

Atiya claimed her husband and in-laws forced her out of the house after giving birth to their second daughter in 2015. She had also accused her of demanding Rs 20 lakh in dowry.

Atiya filed a complaint with the Saharanpur court on November 24, 2015 after Ali gave her triple talaq by writing the word ‘talaq’ three times in a letter on November 2, 2015.

Atiya expressed high spirits at the verdict, telling a leading publication that she would like more and more women who have faced harassment to come forward. She added that she felt blessed that God chose her, be it to “fight for the triple law of ‘Talaq’ or win this alimony case”.

Meanwhile, Atiya had also filed a petition with the Supreme Court banning the immediate Triple Talaq and calling it “unconstitutional” in August 2017.
