According to Islam, the purdah practice requires married Muslim women to stay in separate rooms, behind a curtain or dress in all-enveloping clothes, in other to say out of the sight of men or strangers.

Azanat told the judge:

“This is not in our agreement. I cannot be covering my body with black cloth, including my eyes, all of the time.’’

Demanding the custody of their children, Mumin said: “If she doesn’t agree to be in purdah, she is free to go.’’
