LUCKNOW: Atiya Sabri, one of the six petitioners who fought the practice of Triple Talaq in the Supreme Court, won a major battle when a family court in Saharanpur ordered her estranged husband to pay her Rs 21,000 a month so she can raise their two daughters.

The decision was made on Thursday in the five-year process. In addition to the maintenance payment, Atiya will also receive a arrears of Rs 13.4 billion as the case was filed more than five years ago.

Atiya had also filed a petition with the Supreme Court, which issued a ruling against the age-old practice in August 2017.

Atiya Sabri’s marriage fell apart with the birth of their second daughter. According to her allegations, she was forced out of the house by her husband and in-laws for giving birth to a second girl in 2015. She also claimed that she tortured her for dowry and asked her to bring Rs 20 lakh from her parents.

Atiya was married on March 24, 2012 and received the instant “Talaq” on November 2, 2015 from her husband Wajid Ali, who sent her three letters containing the word Talaq.

Atiya transferred the Saharanpur Family Court on November 24, 2015, about 20 days after receiving the talaqnama.

“Now I can raise my two daughters properly. It was a battle of Atma Samman for me. I am satisfied with the order as God was kind in choosing me for this purpose, be it fighting for the triple Talaq law or winning this alimony. This will be a blessing for women in our community and inspire them to fight for their rights, ”Atiya said when dealing with media representatives.
