UP rape victim willing to abide by fatwa Monday, 27 June , 2005, 19:27 Muzaffarnagar: A woman, who was allegedly raped by her father-in-law at Charthawal in Muzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh, on Monday said she was ready to abide by the fatwa issued by the Islamic seminary, Darul Uloom Deoband. Deoband had ruled that she could not be allowed to live with her husband any longer. "I and my husband are willing to abide by the fatwa if the Darul Uloom Muftis want us to," Imrana said. Mufti Habibur Rehman of Darul Uloom Deoband said in a fatwa on Sunday that the woman’s living with her husband Noor Ilahi had become untenable as per Islamic law after the alleged rape on June 3. Reacting to the ruling, Imrana said she had full faith in the Shariyat. Noor Ilahi said he would take steps as per the fatwa. The rape case made headlines as a local community panchayat passed a verdict that the woman should treat her husband as her son, triggering outrage among women activists.
