Uttering talaq three times in sleep lands couple in soup
Mar. 26, 2006

A Muslim couple in Jalpaiguri district have been ordered by local religious leaders to separate as the husband allegedly uttered ''talaq'' [I divorce you] three times in his sleep.
Aftab Ansari and Sohela have been married for the past 11 years. However, on the night of December 20 last year, Aftab allegedly uttered ''talaq'' three times in his sleep after a tiff with his wife.
The matter came to light when Sohela discussed it with her close friends and soon it reached the ears of the Muslim leaders.
The leaders, quoting the Shariyat, ruled that the talaq has to be implemented and if it is not acceptable, the only alternative was temporary separation for 100 days during which the wife will live at her father's house and spend a night with another man.
