A must read….A man says he wants to divorce his wife in sleep.. and the wife shares this bizarre dream act with her friend.. a cleric gets to know of this… and what is store for the couple now? ACTUAL DIVORCE! Didnt someone tell the women to stop gossiping so much!! Well the funny thing is that both dont want the divorce now! Do read the last para here to see the alternative that the cleric gave them – honestly … if Quran has stuff even remotely close to what these clerics are suggesting.. then I cannot understand how does it have any respect for women!!! Sorry but that inference is inevitable!!

A Muslim couple in Jalpaiguri district have been ordered by local religious leaders to separate as the husband allegedly uttered talaq three times in his sleep.

While the couple, who have three children, refused to obey the order since there was no discord between them, the community leaders are adamant that they must separate or face a "social boycott".

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.

She can remarry her husband only after the man has given her talaq.

As the couple was unwilling to accept the verdict, the matter went to the family counselling centre at Falakata police station in Jalpaiguri district.

The counselling centre, attended by judges of the Alipurduar sub-divisional court, discussed the problem in detail on Saturday, but failed to find a solution.
