June 25, 2006 -- A Brooklyn anesthesiologist callously ditched his wife and three kids, leaving them homeless after he secretly sold their house and fled the country with all their money, the wife alleges. Dr. Raihan Chowdhury was deemed a fugitive Wednesday for ignoring repeated court orders to provide for his hapless family.
His wife, Sharmin Sultana, who gave up her career as a gynecologist to become a full-time mom, is now broke and staying at a women's shelter with the couple's two daughters and toddler son.
All while her husband lives in luxury in his native Bangladesh, possibly having remarried without getting a divorce here, according to her divorce documents and her lawyer's statements in Brooklyn Family Court.

Is that Sharia you are quoting from? I think not.
She ought to update her license, and get to work and forget about the well, whatever he is.
She will not be able to work as a doctor until she is licensed which would take her at least 4 to 7 years.

In America, if he remarried before getting a legal divorce, he'd end up in jail and she sure would get the house (with the mortgage) and the kids (and the costs of raising them). But he couldn't earn that much for alimony while in jail.
(BTW, there's no alimony in Texas. But there is community property, which can include assets such as the benefits of education earned while married.)
Months, see post 139 years.
In order to disposition property, you have to own it. This directly opposes your statement that women cannot own property under Sharia.
"Good Grief! Wasn't the home in both their names? "
Maybe it's a cultural thing.
Ah. OK, Leme google for you.
Oh come on, he went with well over a million dollars.
You're right. I was just being foolish.
Likely realized an American (Feminist) divorce would have destroyed him, so he took his money and bolted.
Please make a list of those organizations that would spot a potential foreign doctor start up costs.
I am guessing that she did not do any certifications nor take any exams. Even so exams expire after seven years unless she took the Step 3.
See my post at 139.
This poor gal is looking at years not months to be certified and licensed to practice medicine in the USA.

The draft Iraqi bill of rights favors men in other respects, such as the right to marry up to four wives, and the right to an easy divorce, without the interference of a court, simply by repeating "I divorce you" in the presence of two male witnesses. A wife divorced in such a fashion will receive an allowance for a period of three months to one year, and after that period nothing. On the other hand, if a wife wants a divorce, she must go to court and prove that her husband does not meet her material needs, that he is infertile and that he is impotent. Once a divorce is finalized, if there are children, the custody of the children will automatically go to the father (for boys at age 7 and for girls from the start of menstruation). Inheritance based on the Shariah means that wives will get only a small portion of the property of their husbands and a sister will get half what her brother gets.
It appears you are correct. Sharia law does allow women rights. The right to 3 month's alimony, the right to give up her children upon divorce (how liberating that must be!) The right to a few crumbs from her late husband's wealth, the right to half what she would get as a son.
Read post #146, under that 'perfect' islamic family law a woman can own property, but her husband or ex-husband controls what she can do with it.
Replace 'husband' with 'government', and you have the definition of Fascism: private ownership, under total government control.
If her med school is on the WHO list, why would it take 4-7 years for her to get her license? It makes sense that the other steps you described would take some significant time, but 4 years or more? She might as well start med school from the beginnng.
Drs. Sharmin Sultana and Chowdhury seem to have a strange past.
Thank you. As to the treatment of women in Muslim societies, we all know that it is not what it should be.
Becoming a certified U.S. doctor takes hard, gruelling work and a fortune. It's not a walk in the park straight to easy street. I wish more people understood that.

...(See, New York Times. The Crescent and the Gavel, J. Alexander Their -a legal adviser to Afghanistans constitutional and judicial reform committee- March 26, 2006) fail to understand the pivotal, critical role of religious freedom. As important as property rights and criminal procedure are, without a right to religious freedom, they may not be guaranteed either, at least not for all groups. Blasphemy and apostasy will be criminalized and used against those Muslims who struggle to promote property rights for women heirs, for example as was actually demonstrated in the arrest last October of the womens magazine editor in Afghanistan. Individual rights across the board, equality under the law and other hallmarks of modernity will be undermined by a state-enforced retrograde interpretation of sharia.
Once again - Blasphemy and apostasy will be criminalized and used against those Muslims who struggle to promote property rights for women heirs
Just a reminder: Blasphemy and apostasy both carry the death penalty...
Defend them all you wish, quibble about the finner points of what is islamic, and just how islamic sharia is, or how in keeping with sharia the current practices of islam are.
May your chains not bother you, may you pay the jizyah tax with a smile, and never do anything to offend your masters.
God help you. I won't be there to defend you. I will die before I allow that to happen to my country.
That's only possible if he bought the house BEFORE he got married otherwise the mortgage company would demand her name on it as well.
Yeah. The treatment of men ain't so hot either!
BTW, how do you like FR so far?
Leaving the good people of New York to pick up the consequences.
I'd rather die than abandon my family, but then again, I haven't absorbed the superior culture of TROP.
It's fun. I am learning a lot. Both from the post I read and the googling I have to do to keep up with the subjects.
There may be more to the story. There was a post that indicated that the wife may have been in Bangladesh as late as 2003. Maybe he was 'married' over there but not completely forthcoming of his status when he bought the house.
From the posts on this thread lots of people do not know or understand what it takes to be a doctor in the United States.
Yeah! I learned quite a bit today just responding to your challenge.
With her education could she become a nurse?
Could she sell medical equipment?
How long would it take for her to become a nurse midwife?
I bet she could become a lactation consultant in a short time.
She would be required to take nursing classes for at least a year, pass exams before getting certification.
Otherwise she could sell medical equipment.
I think that she would also have to re-do her residency. A friend is an MD who was originally from Russia, got her degree from St. Petersburg (not Florida of course). Took a few years.
Do you think for one second foreigners (Especially Muslims) care about the American Tax payer especially those in New York
They use and abuse an eager Affirmative Action System all the time
No, my point is that Federal authorities let this mug and his family in. When he skips town, he leaves local authorities (and taxpayers) holding the bag.
Knew a Lebanese guy who tried to pull that one--but it doesn't work like that in Texas.
I don't see a lie. I agree with him.
BTW, are you a family court judge? Your screen name is exactly what the domestic court magistrate told me to do every time I tried to fight for my son.
I agree, the Govt is a joke on immigration.
That is what I was wondering.. if she had an education as a gynecologist.. surely she could have got work immediately.,...and high paying as well
What a slime bag.
o Can have a man charged for a crime with no evidence other than her word.
o Can sue for divorce under no/false pretenses (always granted)
o Gets the house in a divorce.
o Gets the kids in a divorce.
o Can beat a man and have the police arrest him.
o Has preference over a man for government job.
Shall I go on?
Thanks for making my point, Talibma'am.
I haven't heard of any American men who were killed by their mothers or sisters for dishonoring the family by flirting with a woman, or who were stoned to death for siring a child out of wedlock. I also haven't seen any laws that require a man to have his wife's or mother's permission to travel or work, or that specify that a man's testimony is worth a fraction of a woman's. Show me something along those lines and I might reconsider.
Islam is a bogus religion and it isreally just a control freak's ( mohammed) way of keeping control of folks after he died and went to hell!
She can't be a gynecologist again?
yeah, I know. But in California, the guy who was from India pulled it off...
I was reading the whole thread thinking about cab drivers, liquor store clerks, etc. who have professional degrees that are useless here.
You would want this woman as a colleague?
Did you read the article about her? Assuming it is the same person, she doesn't sound competent.
There are reasons why foreign physicians are unable to practice here until they demonstrate competency.
I have questions about the story BECAUSE
under the current law in most states, the domestic relations laws were changed just for this reason. EVEN IF she was not on the title, because he was married she would have had to sign off on the sale of the home.
She could literally "undo" the sale as defective and void as a matter of law. That leaves the buyer to go after him for a criminal act and her in a position for an emergency order for exclusive posession of the house.
most states have similar laws.
something is missing in the article.
