Reward announced for chopping triple talaq victim’s hair

Bareilly: A fatwa or a ruling on a point of Islamic law was issued on Saturday against triple talaq victim Nida Khan, announcing a cash reward of Rs 11,876 for anyone who chops off her hair.

Khan has been in the news lately for defying Muslim clerics by challenging instant divorce and ‘nikah halala’.
In an interview to ANI, Khan said: “A fatwa has been issued against me, which says whosoever brings chopped hair of Nida Khan will be rewarded with an amount of Rs 11,786, and if I do not leave this country within three days then I will be attacked with stones.”

She also appealed to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the same issue.

“I will take a proper appointment to meet Prime Minister Modi and will appeal to him about it. He was in Shahjahanpur today, but I decided not to go to meet him due to my own security issues,” she noted.

Earlier this week, the Imam of Bareilly’s Jama Masjid had issued a fatwa against Nida for opposing several Islamic practices, including Triple Talaq, and demonstrating against the same.

As per the fatwa, Nida was ostracised from Islam for regularly speaking against the religion and its practices.

Furthermore, Imam Khurshid Alam noted that no Muslim was to maintain contact with Khan until she publicly apologised and retracted her “anti-Islam stand.” (ANI)
