Palamkad District Sessions Court Judge Kalam Pasha’s wife against Kerala regarding triple talaq complaint Has approached the Kerala High Court for lodging. Kalam Pasha’s wife has also alleged that Kalam Pasha’s brother and retired Justice B Kamal Pasha also threatened him. According to the woman, Kalam Pasha threatened her that she would have to face dire consequences if she refused to divorce him.
The complainant woman stated that Kalam Pasha had issued triple talaq against her on March 1, 2018. He also sent a letter in this regard to her on the same day. But later, he sent her another letter saying that there was a typing error and the original date was March 1, 2017. The woman alleged that it was an attempt to avoid legal procedures, which led to the mention of a date before the law was enacted against the triple talaq.
According to the Supreme Court, permission of the Chief Justice concerned is necessary to register a case against a judge. Prior to two years, a preliminary inquiry was carried out after the case came to the notice of the High Court. The Parliament of India passed a law against triple talaq on July 30, 2019, making it a punishable offense. It was also implemented from August 1 the same year.
He also alleged that Kalam Pasha’s brother and retired judge Kamal Pasha threatened him and told him that if he refused to divorce Kalam Pasha, he would have to face dire consequences.
It is noteworthy that under the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act, 2019, three times ‘divorce, divorce, divorce’ has been considered an offense. After the law is made, it is now illegal to grant triple talaq through written, mail, SMS, WhatsApp or any other electronic chat. In cases registered under this law, there is a provision for punishment of up to three years if the offender is found, as well as the victim is entitled to maintenance from the husband for the woman and herself and dependent children.
