Habiba Qureshi’s husband of eight years, Haroon, gave her triple talaq in March

In what could be a significant case related to instant triple talaq, which was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in August, the Vadodara family court has issued an injunction restraining a Muslim woman’s husband and his family from addressing her as a “divorcee”. Habiba Qureshi, 28, a resident of Navayard in Vadodara has been fighting a battle for “dignity” after her husband of eight years, Haroon Qureshi, pronounced the triple talaq in March.

The court pronounced the order on Monday, the copy of which reached the petitioner on Tuesday evening. For Habiba, who has pleaded the court to invalidate the talaq, the injunction has brought more hope.

Habiba, a painter, says she gathered herself during the mandatory period of ‘iddat’, before deciding to file a petition in the family court in May, challenging the triple talaq uttered in one instance by Haroon who works at a butcher’s shop.
