One of the country’s first group of women trained as kazis, Jahanara, is using her religious knowledge to help Muslims fight back against male domination“Do you want to take her back alive? Or do you want her corpse?” That’s what Jahanara’s husband asked her mother as he beat his wife 10 years ago. That night, Jahanara gave up on her brutal marriage and left her home and four children. Since then, her husband has refused to let her see the children, though they live in the same city, Jaipur. He has paid no alimony. He has refused to give her the 15 grammes of gold promised as part of the mandatory payment that Muslim men must make to their wives if the marriage ends. Her share in the marital home has also been denied her. Related: ‘If a man can do it, why can't I?’: turning the tables on India's instant divorce law | Amrit Dhillon Continue reading... [...]
