UDHAM SINGH NAGAR: Another case of Triple Talaq has surfaced from Udham Singh Nagar of Uttarakhand, where after falling victim to the Islamic divorce practice, a woman has threatened either to convert to Hinduism or commit suicide if she did not get justice
 
In a new video which went viral on Wednesday, Shamim Jahan has sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Supreme Courts intervention 
 
Jahan was given Triple Talaq by her husband Asif inside the Gadarpur police station.
 
"After my experience, I think it is better to convert to Hinduism as these things do not happen in Hinduism. The other option is suicide. I have suffered a lot," she says in the video.
 
Jahan married Asif 12 years ago who divorced her after four years of marriage.
 
However, with some counselling from family elders, after completing the Halala period of 40 days, the two were reunited.

Refusing to succumb to the violence Jahan took the matter to the Gadarpur Police Station.
