CASE STUDY OF A MUSLIM WOMAN AFFECTED BY TSUNAMI – VIOLENCE AT THE FAMILY LEVEL

A Muslim family of Alangudi Taluk, Pudukottai district went to Nagoor for worship. The father, mother, with two sons and two daughters along with their 2 grand daughters went to Nagoor. During their visit in Nagoor, the Tsunami tidal waves came and taken away the entire family leaving the father, elder daughter and elder son. The daughter Jesima sat on a big wall along with her children. But she could not hold the children against the forces of the waves. Hence the waves taken away her two children in front of her. The wall where she was sitting was also fallen on her legs. Hence Jesima’s both legs got affected and she can walk anymore. Her brother Mohamed Ali Jinna and her father are alive in this family. The other two members were also had some minor injuries. Now Jesima is under medical treatment in her parents place.

At this juncture, her husband and husband’s family are showing lot of love and affection on her for the purpose of grabbing the relief amount given by the government. They are very much interested in knowing the facts about the money she will get for the loss of two children and not for the loss of lives of the children. Her husband is torturing her to know whether any relatives gave money for her treatment. Knowing the facts about Jesima’s husband, the bank manager hides the draft for two lakhs which was given by the government for losing her two children. For this, Jesima’s husband has given a petition against the Bank manager for not giving the draft. Hence a joint account was opened in the bank to deposit the two lakhs in the name of husband and wife. Now Jesima got cured and live with her husband.
