Mustaq, a Bangalore-based software professional, married Ayesha Banu on March 30, 2009. On August 1, 2013, they had a child. But due to differences of opinion, they decided to separate and apply for divorce. But with the custody of the child, there is a rift between the two husbands and wives. The court said that the child is 6 years old and it is more important for the child to be with the mother at this age, so this right cannot be taken away from the mother.
Mustaq said he would take better care of the child and he got an affidavit from his second wife that he too would take good care of the child. But the court rejected this argument of the petitioner. On the first and third Saturday of each month, the court allowed Mostaq to spend four hours with his child.
