More Hindus than Muslims have two wives in India

More Hindus than Muslims have two wives in India
Apr 10, 2010
The Shoaib-Ayesha-Sania drama, played out live on TV for days, has enhanced the image of Ayesha and her family. The same cannot be said of the former Pakistan captain who sold himself short by denying his first marriage.

Indians and Pakistanis alike can now heave a sigh of relief the controversy is settled. But the entire saga offers important lessons. First, although Muslim Personal Law allows a man to take a second wife during the lifetime of the first, it cannot be a license to commit injustice. Under Islamic tenets, a man is allowed to take a second wife only if he is in a position to provide equal partnership and amenities to both.

However, if you were to carry out an honest survey across the country, you would find that more Hindu men than Muslims have more than one wife. In such cases, the second wife is neither recognized by society nor given the legal status of ‘wife’.

It’s interesting to note that throughout the controversy — and despite Sania’s wholehearted support for Shoaib — the Muslim community in particular and Indian society at large was solidly behind Ayesha, who was seen as the victim in the whole saga.

Perhaps that’s why Shoaib did not succeed in his attempt to cover up his first marriage.

Also, Ayesha’s acceptance of a divorce without preconditions sends out a strong signal to the Pakistani people — the people of India are forgiving if you make amends.

But I am still intrigued about the most important aspect of this drama — the basis of the divorce. Under Islamic law, a husband has to give a reason for divorcing his wife and if she is not satisfied with it, she can ask for divorce under the khula rights. What reason did Shoaib give for divorcing Ayesha? That is still not clear.

Con-woman Ayesha has a Pattern of Cheating men into marriage by misrepresentation: Feroze Jalal

Ayesha Siddiqui seems to have a pattern of cheating behaviour by criminal representation. Such women who are into Criminal misrepresentation and have a poor self-image, bring other Righteous women into disrepute.

The other issue is Closure: Marriages which are Invalid (due to fraud, misrepresentation) have to be closed either by Divorce or Legal recourse.

Such families may in fact be profiteering from Criminal misrepresentation and preying on young vulnerable men.

Con-woman Ayesha has a Pattern of Cheating men into marriage by misrepresentation: Feroze Jalal
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/bollywood/news-interviews/Ayesha-Siddiqui-framed-me-too-US-businessman/articleshow/5787442.cms
Chicago-based businessman Feroze Jalal says Ayesha Siddiqui is no pained wife, and that she tried to con him the same way she ‘framed’ Shoaib Malik.

Hyderabad is my hometown —which I will soon be visiting, probably in June. I’m currently settled in Chicago with my wife. When I read the news about Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik and his alleged link up with the Hyderabad based-Ayesha Siddiqui, what immediately struck me was the name of the woman — since I’ve known her, and had a similar experience, many years back. And in light of that experience, I feel that Ayesha may well have framed Shoaib. What has happened with Shoaib is very sad, and I can understand it better than most because I have gone through similar trauma, because of what Ayesha had done with me a few years back.

In 1997, while I was in Jeddah, I started receiving some crank calls on my phone. I found out that it was my ex-girlfriend’s friend who was making the calls. I then got to know her name —Ayesha Siddiqui. Yes, the same Ayesha who supposedly has just ‘divorced’ Shoaib Malik.

I was only 20 years old at that time. I would keep getting these crank calls everyday. Finally, I decided to speak to her. She introduced herself as Ayesha Siddiqui. Slowly, we both started talking. Sometimes, we’d talk over the phone for hours and hours. She has a typical Pakistani accent. One day, I asked her if she would meet me, and she readily agreed. We decided to meet at a super mall in Jeddah. When I reached the mall and waited for her, a slim, beautiful girl walked up to me and introduced herself, saying, ‘Hi, I’m Ayesha.” We sat and chatted for some time, but after she left, I realised that her voice didn’t sound the same as it did on the phone. I had my doubts. I therefore got in touch with one of my friends, who was Ayesha’s neighbour. His description of Ayesha was very different from what the girl I had met looked like, and he also told me that the girl who had come to meet me at the mall was not Ayesha, but a friend of hers. The next time that I asked Ayesha to meet me, she didn’t turn up at all.
On the phone, Ayesha would cry, and ask me to marry her all the time, and I would refuse. She was crazy and madly in love with me, or so I thought. I finally got irritated of all this and stopped attending her calls. Our relationship lasted only for about six months.

Finally, later, I got to know about Ayesha’s real identity, her family, etc, through a common friend. I got to know that she had been calling other boys too, and talking to them the same way, and trying to somehow force them to marry her. In fact, one of my close friends, whom I’ll just call K (since his family doesn't know about all this), who was at that time staying in Hyderabad, had started receiving similar crank calls from Ayesha. When I told K about Ayesha, he also gave up talking to her. He is now, fortunately, happily married and settled in Australia.

I strongly feel that Ayesha needs proper medication. She seems normal to speak to at first, but she is not quite a ‘normal’ personality. I think she is just looking for fame and money. What appears stranger is that her parents seem to be supporting her in all this. She has probably trapped Shoaib and framed him.
And yes, I’m saying this all on record, as my wife is fully aware of this episode.

Testimony Wife deceived into Bigamous marriage Ch 6. Balaji aka Krishna cheats a Widowed wife and profiteers at the cost of the Fatherless Orphan

Biography of a Wife deceived by a 'Husband' into a Bigamous marriage(s): Chapter 6. Balaji aka Krishna cheats a Widowed wife and profiteers at the cost of the Fatherless Orphan

Main Characters:

1. Meera -The Legally Wedded Wife or Narrator in USA (Married by Civil Registered Marriage)

2. Veena - Yet another wife in India and Young widow (Married by Hindu Religious rites)

3. Balaji aka Krishna -The Bigamous Husband in USA (The Charming Con-Artist)

4. Roshan - Veena's Fatherless orphan from previous marriage with Madan

5. Madan -First husband of Veena, who died an unnatural death with unfinished business
-----------------------------------------------------

Date of writing: 10 April 2010

Date of Editing: 10 April 2010

-----------------------------------------------------
Balaji aka Krishna cheated the widow Veena's Fatherless orphan Roshan more than the widow. The young widow married a much older man, who was 14 years older.

How?
The Fatherless Orphan was eligible for 2/3rd of the Deceased father's insurance awarded in the USA.

First Marriage of Veena with Madan
The deceased father Madan was working in his native place in Andhra Pradesh, and then relocated to the USA after 10 years of marriage. The Fatherless orphan Roshan was about 9 years old, when the father moved to the USA. The father Madan had an unexpected and unnatural death in the workplace (within 4 months of relocation with wife and Fatherless orphan), when he died of Brain haemorrhage. The wife and Fatherless orphan were shocked at the sudden death, and the wife fainted on hearing the news and was inconsolable. The wife and Fatherless orphan were awarded a Fat Insurance by the Employer of Madan.
According to law, 2/3rd of the Insurance should have been given to the Fatherless orphan (Best interest of the Child principle) and 1/3rd was the Widow's share.

Life of a Young Widow

Veena's mother was herself a young widow with 5 children. This included 2 Greedy brothers and 3 deserted sisters. In her community in Chennai, a widow was considered as a curse. She was not invited to marriage functions and other happy community occasions.
Veena was berated by her own mother.
All this impacted the pretty young widow.
Second marriage of Veena with Balaji aka Krishna
The assets of the late departed Madan were usurped by the crooked Balaji. The promise of a Widow re-marriage was in the best interests of the young widow. The assets (2/3rd) of the Fatherless orphan ROSHAN were used by the Widow to marry herself off, using the assets of the late Father. Rs 4 Lakhs cheque was written to Balaji to travel to the USA.


The marriage was conducted by a RELIGIOUS CEREMONY in a Hotel only. Marriage was not registered intentionally by Balaji.

The Groom and Widow Bride had a Honeymoon for 15 days and 15 nights. After that, when it came to Civil Registration of Marriage, the Bride baulked and broke all contact with the Widow bride.

Desperate cheated widow was contacting Balaji to allow her to come to US (with her Fatherless orphan) but Balaji told her to educate better to make herself marketable. Balaji was finding out some excuses to avoid Veena and told her to complete some beautician courses and then he can invest 'beauty and massage parlour' in USA for her. After finishing that Balaji suggested her to do some computer course and then will take her to USA which did never happened.

Meanwhile, Balaji was fishing on Shaadi.com and talking to Meera for hours and hours on the telecommunication company's cell phone.

Deception of being a Married (ex-widow) Woman
Veena tried to use the status of being a married woman. She was thrown out of 4 jobs, because the employers asked her where her husband was. People knew that she was an abandonned Woman, and her marriage was questionnable.

Fate of the Fatherless Orphan
The fatherless orphan Roshan was upset about the abrupt widow re-marriage (albeit Religious ceremony only). The misuse of the assets of his late father to be lent to Balaji aka Krishna meant that Roshan missed out the love and affection of his mother and no investment on his education.

Breach of Trust! and Breach of Financial assets of Fatherless Orphan!

Shoaib receives support of Indian men's rights activists SIFF

Shoaib receives support of Indian men's rights activists SIFF
April 06, 2010
The Save Indian Family Foundation, a men's rights organisation fighting against misuse of marital laws and domestic violence act, on Monday, voiced its concern over section 498 A (harassment) of IPC being filed against Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik and reiterated its demand for scrapping it.

"Marriage disputes before, during and after marriage are civil disputes and they have to be tried under a civil court. It has become a regular habit for women and their families to invoke section 498A for every petty dispute in marriage", the organisation said.

"It is dangerous if every marriage or relationship dispute is considered a crime by the Government and it sends police to interrogate, counsel or settle these marital disputes.

"What crime did Shoaib Malik commit that he is victimised in this way?" SIFF activists asked.

"Whether the claims by Ayesha Siddiqui are false or true, that is up to a family court or civil court to decide and give a judgment", it said.

They demand the Government scrap section 498 A of IPC on April 16 as soon as Parliament meets for budget session.

Section 498A is the most misused, it said. In 2008, more than 81,000 cases were registered under the section which resulted in arrest of 37369 women and 127492 men.

"So far as Shoaib Malik is concerned, section 498A against him has to be dropped immediately and his passport returned to him", it said.

Ayesha's father files FIR against Shoaib Malik over 'first' marriage

Ayesha's father files FIR against Shoaib Malik
Apr 4, 2010
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sports/events-tournaments/sania-shoaib-wedding/Ayeshas-father-files-FIR-against-Shoaib-Malik/articleshow/5760146.cms
Siddiqui, in his complaint, accused Shoaib of cheating, cruelty to woman and criminal conspiracy, Banjara Hills Police Inspector Iqbal Siddiqui said.

"We received the complaint and we have not booked any case so far. We are verifying the facts," the police official said.

Earlier in the day, Shoaib had confirmed that he would go ahead with his marriage with Sania Mirza on April 15 here but refused to clarify his version on his alleged marriage with Ayesha saying that his lawyer will deal with the issue.

The move came after the Shoaib-Ayesha controversy turned murkier with the Pakistani cricketer claiming he was emotionally forced into the 'nikahnama' with the Hyderabad girl but said the marriage was invalid as her family had cheated him and ruled out divorce.

On a surprise visit to the city days before his marriage to tennis star Sania Mirza, Shoaib Malik distributed a press statement and also took a few questions from a battery of mediapersons outside Sania's house in posh Jubilee Hills.

28-year-old Shoaib will tie the knot with 23-year-old Sania on April 15 and a reception will be held at the Taj Krishna the same day.


'Nikah' with Ayesha is invalid: Shoaib
Apr 4, 2010
http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sports/events-tournaments/sania-shoaib-wedding/Nikah-with-Ayesha-is-invalid-Shoaib/articleshow/5759907.cms
On a surprise visit to the city days before his marriage to tennis star Sania Mirza, Shoaib Malik distributed a press statement and also took a few questions from a battery of mediapersons outside Sania's house in posh Jubilee Hills.

28-year-old Shoaib will tie the knot with 23-year-old Sania on April 15 and a reception will be held at the Taj Krishna the same day.

After days of flip-flop, Shoaib admitted to the 'nikahnama' but said it was invalid since the intention was to cheat. He said to this day he has not met the girl whose photographs were sent to him by the Siddiqui family purported to be that of Ayesha.

"Now they are asking for a divorce. To begin with there was no 'nikah' because they pressurised me into it with the intention to cheat. In Islam, there can only be a divorce if the 'nikah' is valid," he said.

Shoaib's statement comes two days after the Siddiqui family demanded that he gives an "official divorce" to 29-year-old Ayesha and appointed a lawyer to sue him in Pakistan.

"I was wrongly made to believe that the pictures Ayesha had sent me were of the girl I was marrying. I feel terrible about the mess created by a family that has caused a great grief to my own people and the family of my bride-to-be," he said.

Shoaib also said he had met Ayesha a number of times but knew her as 'Maha apa', elder sister of Ayesha and never got to actually meet the girl in the photographs sent to him.

The Pakistani cricketer said it was only by accident that he got to know that Maha apa and Ayesha were the same girl.

"We accidentally ran into the truth about who Ayesha was. It was the worst moment of my life. No one enjoys being made a fool of and that was exactly how I was made to look. It happened in August 2005. My brother-in-law got a photograph of a teacher in Saudi Arabia who was telling people around her that she was married to me. His nephews were studying in that school.

"I was aghast when he showed me the photograph of the teacher. The woman in it was the person I called 'Maha apa'. I immediately confronted 'Maha apa'. It was she who had been making a full of me all these years, pretending to be the person whose pictures she had been sending me. I told her I didn't even want to speak to her again. At that point I wondered if I could ever trust anyone again."

The Pakistani cricketer began the two-page statement by saying that he wanted to clarify "wrongly reported facts" in newspapers and television channels both in India and Pakistan.

"I want to make my position clear especially because I'm to wed Sania Mirza in the near future," he said.


Sania's heart not Indian, says Bal Thackeray
3 Apr 2010
http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/politics/nation/Sanias-heart-not-Indian-says-Thackeray/articleshow/5756171.cms
NEW DELHI: Continuing with his efforts to reclaim his political space, much of which has been occupied of late by his estranged nephew, Raj
Thackeray, Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray on Friday came down heavily on tennis star Sania Mirza for her decision to marry Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, contending that “had her heart been Indian, it wouldn't have beaten for a Pakistani.’’

“Henceforth, Sania will not remain an Indian. Had her heart been Indian, it wouldn’t have beaten for a Pakistani. If she wished to play for India, she should have chosen an Indian life partner,’’ the 84-year-old Mr Bal Thackeray said in an editorial in his party’s mouthpiece Saamna.

The Sena chief’s contention, articulated in his party’s journal, is in keeping with the aggressive stance that he has adopted once again of late on matters pertaining to Pakistan. It was on display earlier this year when he took on popular film star Shah Rukh Khan for taking up the cause of the Pakistani cricket players after they failed to make the grade in any of the IPL teams in the latest auction of cricketers held by the organising committee.

Taking a cue from the anti-Shah Rukh diatribe launched by Mr Bal Thackeray, the Sena threatened to stall the release of “My Name is Khan’’, the latest Shah Rukh-starrer. It was only after the Maharashtra government, and the state police, swung into action that film could be released in Mumbai and other cities and towns in the state.

“More than victories on the tennis court, Sania became famous for her tight clothes, fashion and love affairs,’’ the Sena patriarch alleged, adding, “More than her play, people's attention was on her mannerisms.’’

The Shiv Sena chief argued that for Shoaib Malik, India was an enemy, not only in the sports arena but also in the battlefield. ``We have heard that Shoaib has many affairs in India and has promised many girls he will marry them,’’ Mr Bal Thackeray said.

The Sena supremo also expressed surprise over the alacrity with which Sania's family members were granted Pakistani visas. ``Getting a Pakistani visa is tough even for a singer like Lata Mangeshkar,’’ he said.

The party on Saturday indeed served an ace for Sania by terming Thackeray's comments as typical of his tendency to `communalise' everything.

The Sena veteran had said Sania's decision to marry Malik made it clear that her heart no longer beat for India.

"It is symptomatic of his notorious tendency to lend a communal colour to every issue," senior Congress leader and Union minister Jaipal Reddy said savaging Thackeray's remarks.

Reddy said it would be a big mistake to equate a personal choice with the current relations between the two countries.

"We in India have very serious problems with the government of Pakistan; that does not mean that there cannot be good relations between the peoples of the two countries," he said in a statement.

Echoing similar concerns, Congress spokesman Manish Tiwari said it would not be appropriate for a party to comment on a matter which was in someone's personal domain.

He said that even for those living in public glare there was personal space which should not be transgressed.
