A woman who converted in 2013 to Islamism following the death of her Hindu husband in 2011 has approached the Delhi Court to announce her as one of the 3 owners for the property purchased by her deceased father in Shahdara, Ashok Nagar, in east Delhi.
The issue is unique wherein her brothers claim she cannot claim the ownership over a Hindu property since she is now a Muslim. Additional district judge Ravinder Singh has fixed August 26 for hearing the case.
The woman, who is aged 33, has filed a case through her advocate Amit Kumar who alleged that her brothers has cheated on her.After her father’s demise in 2010, the woman who also became the joint owner of the property was taken to the sub-registrar office by her brothers in the pretext of announcing her as one of the owners of the property, legally. She signed the documents in good faith without going through the contents and now came to know that it is the relinquishment of all her rights over the property.
Though she was getting the share of her rent initially, it was stopped later and the brothers tried to sell the property in 2015, she alleged.
Citing the Hindu Succession Act, the brothers claim that they did nothing against it and that the Woman who is a convert has lost all her rights over the property.
