Neither religious boundaries nor the court of law could stop Jabalpur’s Shama Khan (previously Shiva Parihar) from reuniting with her husband. The Hindu woman adopted Islam to live with the love of her life but her parents objected to the relationship as the man already had three wives.
Shamim Khan, a resident of Damoh, had filed a petition before a court in Jabalpur alleging that Shama, his fourth wife, was kept under houses arrest by her parents and urged the court to set her free. The court ordered the police to drop Shama to her husband’s house under full protection.
Arguing the matter, public prosecutor Akshay Namdev told the court that Shamim, who is tailor by profession, already had three wives and three sons and thus, Shama would find it difficult to adjust.
However, Shama, 26, told the court that she was ready to live with Shamim as his fourth wife despite the fact that he hasn’t divorced his other three wives. ” I know he has three wives and has not taken divorce from them. Despite this, I am ready to live with him,” Dainik Jagran quoted her, as saying.
Shamim, 42, was in a relationship for last seven years before the two decided to marry a few months ago. The family of Shama, who holds a degree in Computer Science, objected to her decision and didn’t allow her to leave the house after she told them about her marriage to a Muslim man.
