Hyderabad, July 23 (NSS): Hyderabad July 23 (): CPI general secretary S Sudhakar Reddy today condemned the “fatwas” issued against Bareilly-based two women — Nida Khan and Farhat Naqvi — for speaking out against the “inhuman Islamic practices”.
In a statement today, Sudhakar Reddy said the All India Faizan-e-Madina Council had issued a fatwa on July 20 signed by its chief Moin Siddiqui Noori, offering a reward to anyone who could stone and cut the hair of two women, who recently spoke out against triple talaq and nikah halalapractices.
Nida Khan and Farhat Naqvi claimed they were “divorced” through triple talaq. In a recent press conference, Khan had come out in support of a woman, who claimed she was divorced this way twice and forced to marry her father-in-law in the name of nikah halala, a law that requires a woman to marry and sleep with another man in order to return to her first husband, he said.
The CPI extended its full support to the fighting duo and appealed to all women in general and Muslim women in particular to oppose any move to deny them their just and genuine rights, Sudhakar Reddy added.
