‘Deserted By Husband ’— How Triple Talaq Criminalisation Has Increased Abandonment Of Muslim Women


‘Latka ke choda hua hai’ or ‘he has left me hanging’, is a common lament among several women at the Shaheen Women's Resource and Welfare Association—a centre in Telengana’s Hyderabad which has been working for the victims of Triple Talaq for decades.
