Husband Forces Wife to Have Sex with Friend. For Religion.

FAM: RT examines a brutal example of rape in the name of “triple talaq”:


(RT) – A man in India had a friend rape his wife, claiming that it was Nikah Halala, a special Muslim ritual, local media reported. The victim, however, says it was simply abuse and that her husband drugged her and filmed the act of rape.

The incident took place in Jaipur, the capital and largest city of the state of Rajasthan in North India, the Hindustan Times reported, citing the victim, a 42-year-old woman who declined to give her name. 

The woman said she had been married to her 50-year-old husband, who is also her cousin, for 25 years. They have two adult sons.

The man, a property dealer, had asked his wife to have sexual relations with other men in the past, but she refused.

“He used to insist that I sleep with his friends, but I always refused. One day he got angry and gave me triple talaq,”she said. ‘Triple talaq’ amounts to divorce in Islam. The ritual is performed when a husband pronounces the Arabic word ‘ṭalaq’ (I divorce you) to his wife three times.

“But he continued to live with me and had conjugal relations,” she said.

 In August, the woman’s husband took her on a ride to his friend’s home, the victim said.

“I was feeling unwell and he gave me some tablets. I felt dizzy after taking them. He then took me to his friend’s house where he gave me some more tablets. The next thing I remember is waking up naked on the floor next to his friend.”

When she woke up and saw her husband’s friend, she started shouting, but her husband, who then entered the room, told her not to make a fuss. The 50-year-old said that it was a ritual of Nikah Halala. According to Sharia law, a woman cannot re-marry her first husband until she sleeps with another man and then that man divorces her or dies.
