Atiya Sabri of Saharanpur, who took the case of triple talaq to the country's highest court, has won once again in the case of maintenance allowance. The Chief Justice of the Family Court, Narendra Kumar, has ordered Atiya to pay one-time alimony of Rs 13 lakh 44 thousand payable from the date of the application, while he will get a maintenance allowance at the rate of Rs 21 thousand per month. Atia and her two minor daughters will have an equal share in it.
Atia Sabri filed this complaint on 24 November 2015 against her husband Wajid Ali in court. It was said that she was married to Wajid Ali on 25 March 2012. At the wedding, the family spent Rs 25 lakh including a car, jewelry, household essentials, but the in-laws used to demand Rs 20 lakh in spite of it. When the demand was not met, he also tried to kill Atiya by poisoning him, But she escaped and returned to her maternal home. In November 2015, her husband divorced three. Atiya raised her voice against this in the court. Atia, an MA in Urdu and Sociology, filed a maintenance suit against her husband in the court. Stating that her husband's income was one lakh per month, Atiya said that in the name of Wajid, there is a dealership of Hero Honda motorcycle and 100 bighas of farmland. Atiya asked for 25 thousand and for her two minor daughters, Sadiya and Sana, 10–10 thousand per month as maintenance allowance. Chief Justice Narendra Kumar pronounced the judgment on 22 March on the basis of hearing the arguments of both the parties and the evidence that came on the paper. Atia and her daughter Saadia and Sana fixed an amount of 7-7 thousand as maintenance allowance. The court, in its order, also clarified that the payment of maintenance will be given to Atiya from the date of submission of her application. Thus, Atiya was given 5 years and 4 months.
Women should fight against oppression
Atiya says that it was not easy to fight this battle. During this time, one of his feet was in the court while the other leg was in the court. He also had to endure unbearable harassment, but he trusted the judicial system. Justice has won. She gives a message to women that they should fight for their rights fearlessly and have faith in the justice system. Struggle against the oppressors and do not let the oppressors suppress you.
