The practice, called triple talaq, allows muslim men to divorce their wives by using the word "talaq" three times in person, over the phone or even in writing or text message. the option is not available to muslim women, who can seek a divorce only after getting permission from their husbands, a cleric or other religious authorities. Muslim marriage “nikah” is a ceremony, which is becoming increasingly popular not only because islam began to spread aggressively in Kazakhstan during the years of independence, but also because there are no age restrictions for this marriage. when a bride wears a red wedding dress, she deprives herself of existence within the digital institutional system. she becomes powerless for the formal apparatus of human rights protection, she becomes invisible for the qazaq “iEGOVa”.
