India: Muslim husband divorces wife three times, she is raped by another man so husband can remarry her
By Robert Spencer

Nikah halala is one of the most bizarre aspects of Islamic law. It is a temporary marriage that allows a woman to return to her previous husband after a divorce. If her husband says "I divorce you" to her three times, she can’t return to him unless and until she marries another man, consummates the marriage, and is in turn divorced by the new husband. This is based on the Qur’an. Allah’s regulations for divorce emphasize regarding women that "men have a degree over them" (Qur’an 2:228). This may be why men can divorce their wives simply by saying, "Talaq" — You are divorced, or I divorce you. Such an easy procedure leads to divorces in a fit of pique, followed by reconciliation — and the Qur’an anticipates this and attempts to head it off by stipulating that a husband who divorces his wife three times cannot reconcile with her until she marries another man and is in turn divorced by him: "And if he has divorced her [for the third time], then she is not lawful to him afterward until she marries a husband other than him" (Qur’an 2:230).

"'Woman Given Triple Talaq, Raped By Man Who Was Part Of Wedding: Cops,' Press Trust of India, December 12, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Bhopal: A 21-year-old woman was allegedly given triple talaq, and subsequently raped by a ‘tantrik’ citing the custom of ‘Nikah Halala’ when her husband wished to remarry her, the police said here on Thursday.

The woman’s husband and the tantrik (witch-doctor) who allegedly raped her were arrested on Wednesday, Bhopal police said.

According to the woman, her husband (name not disclosed to protect her identity) divorced her by giving her triple talaq — which is now illegal — on November 23 after the couple had a fight.

The husband later had a change of heart and wished to remarry her, said Jahangirabad City Superintendent of Police (CSP) Abdul Aleem Khan.

Anwar Baba (50), who was the woman’s 'nikahi baap' (one who offers the bride’s hand to the groom during the wedding), told the couple that if they wished to remarry, the woman will have to first marry someone else, consummate the marriage and then remarry her first husband as per the custom of Nikah Halala.

Baba, who is a tantrik, then allegedly took the victim to his flat in Ashbagh area and raped her.

When the woman returned to her husband's house, he refused to take her in, following which she lodged a complaint against him as well as the tantrik, SSP Khan said.

'We have arrested the husband under the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act (which bans triple talaq) and Anwar Baba for raping her,' the official added."
