Death threat issued to anti-triple talaq activists; reward to those who chop off their hair

The All-India Faizan-e-Madina Council has issued a warning to anti-triple talaq crusaders Nida Khan and Farhat Naqvi to leave the country be stoned to death.

The organisation has also announced a reward of Rs 11,786 lakh to anyone who chop off the hair of the two women.  

The UP State Minority Commission has taken cognizance of the letter after it went viral on the social media. “We have asked the Bareilly police to register a case against those who have issued the threat,” said Rumana Siddiqui, a member of the commission who went to Bareilly to probe the fatwa against Nida Khan.

Farhat Naqvi is the sister of the Union Minority Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi. She has been fighting the cases of triple talaq victims through her NGO Mera Haq. A triple talaq victim herself, Nida Khan recently hogged limelight after raising plight of a Nikah-Halal victims under the banner of her NGO Aala Hazrat Helping Society.

In the threat letter, the Council Chairman Moin Siddiqi Noori has directed both Muslim women to leave the country within three days or they will be stoned wherever they are sighted.

Nida Khan has also filed a complaint with the Bareilly Police, but it was not entertained. However, the state minority commission has taken suo motu notice of the threat letter circulating on social media and directed the Police to lodge an FIR. She has been provided security and the home department has issued an order for another armed policeman to escort her in view of the threat to her life.

The two women were also supposed to meet the Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Shahjahanpur, but the meeting could not materialize. However, a report about the plight of victims of triple talaq and Nikah-Halala and fatwa and threat against those raising their issues was submitted to the PM by a BJP MLA.

A two-member commission committee which had visited Bareilly has drafted its report on fatwa against Nida Khan. “We will submit the report to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in a day or two,” said Rumana Siddiqui.
