Wife should have access to ATM through joint account, SC advised men to recognize the sacrifices of their wives

New Delhi: Creation cannot be imagined without women. In Indian culture, women are said to be the epitome of sacrifice, but we forget their sacrifice. In such a situation, today the Supreme Court has shed light on the rights of women while giving its verdict in the case of a divorced woman. The court said that now the time has come for Indian men to recognize the role of housewives and their sacrifice. Along with this, the court emphasized on making married women financially strong.

The court suggested some measures

Underlining the role of the housewife in Indian families, the court said that we emphasize that it is important for husbands to provide financial support to their wives. Practical measures such as maintaining joint bank accounts and sharing ATM access can ensure economic stability of women in the household.

The court made this comment in the case of a divorced Muslim woman

In fact, today, while hearing the case of a divorced Muslim woman, the bench of Justice BV Nagarathna and Justice Augustine George Masih has justified demanding alimony from the husband under Section 125 of the Criminal Procedure Code. The court said that the law of demanding alimony applies to all married women, irrespective of their caste or religion. The court clearly said that paying alimony is not a donation but a fundamental right of married women.

Actually, this whole case is related to a person named Abdul Samad. Recently, the Telangana High Court had ordered Abdul Samad to pay alimony to his/her wife. Abdul Samad filed a petition in the Supreme Court against this order. Abdul said in his/her petition that his/her wife is not entitled to ask for alimony from him/her under Section 125 of the CrPC. She will have to follow the Muslim Women Act, 1986.
