Actually, Mufaddal Saheb's first marriage was to the daughter of YN. His second marriage was with the daughter of Mazoon. It was this second marriage that was dissolved.
There was no love lost between YN and Mazoon who were both STS's sons but they were half-brothers. YN was the son of STS's favorite wife, Fatima, while Mazoon is the son of Amena.
Apparently, Mazoon had understood that he would succeed to the post of Dai as the 53rd Dai. He even made an announcement to that effect in Nairobi. This was not received kindly by powers in Saifi Mahal, most notably by YN, his children and associates. The suspicion is that the latter leaked Mazoon's secret liaison with Bollywood actresses Mumtaz and Nafisa Ali to Gujarati newspapers. This permanently destroyed Mazoon's chances ever to become the Dai. YN and his henchmen lost no time in concluding that Mufaddal Saheb would be the next Dai and solidified their hold on Saifi Mahal by getting YN's daughter married to him. For some time, Mazoon was not given 'raza' to lead prayers or perform waez in Bombay. To save his face he spent some time with his children in the United States.
All Mazoon's daughters, grand-daughters of I-Saheba Amena, inherited latter's beauty. Mufaddal Saheb was smitten by one of them and got married to her. However, machinations of YN's family including Mufaddal Mola's first wife, YN's daughter, lost no time in conspiring to wreck this marriage. Mufaddal Saheb duly divorced her.
You will have read GM's contribution to this forum where he has mentioned that Mufaddal Saheb's son married the sister of Mufaddal Saheb's divorced wife. Thus Mufaddal Saheb's divorced second wife is the step-mother of his son and mother-in-law of her own sister!
Bahen bhi kabhi saas thi!!
