Man Accidentally Divorces Wife In His Sleep

According to Islamic law, to have a permanent divorce from your wife, all you have to do is say "I divorce you" 3 times (um, OK, sure). Looks like this guy in New Delhi took some kind of meds to help him sleep, and uttered talaq (the Urdu word for divorce) 3 times in his sleep. His wife got worried, discussed it with friends...and now village elders have ordered him to leave her, as they are divorced. The religious leaders said that before remarrying, the couple would have to be apart for at least 100 days and that the wife would also have to spend a night with another man and then be divorced by him (apparently implying that they'd have to get married).

Problem, of course, is that he had no intention of divorcing her. As far as he's concerned, he's done no such thing...and they are actually being ostracised for not following the leaders' decision.
