According to Habiba’s lawyer Niraj Jain, the injunction has taken them a step closer towards victory. “When the Supreme Court delivered the landmark judgment, we won half our battle. This injunction is a step closer towards the victory. The court is examining all evidences to support our prayer. By issuing a stay order on the husband’s family addressing Habiba as a divorcee, the court has acknowledged that their Islamic marriage is currently alive.”
Habiba says, “I am doing this for my son Hamza. If Haroon promises to keep me well, I will return to him. As a Muslim woman, I do not have the option to live alone, although I would want to. Our community does not support women living alone.”
Haroon too has filed a reply before the court stating that the talaq was given as per the tenets of the Shariah Law. Haroon’s advocate I M Makrani said he was yet to receive a copy of the injunction from the court. The court will give the next date of hearing soon.
