Triple talaq petitioner Ishrat Jahan joins BJP


Kolkata, Jan 1 (PTI): Ishrat Jahan, one of the petitioners in the triple talaq case, has joined the BJP, the party's state unit general secretary Sayantan Basu said today.

"Ishrat Jahan joined the BJP at our Howrah office yesterday," Basu told PTI.

Sources said Ishrat was felicitated by the Howrah BJP unit yesterday and inducted into the party.

Basu said a state-level programme to felicitate her was yet to be organised.

Ishrat was one of the five petitioners in the triple talaq case. Her husband had divorced her over the phone from Dubai in 2014 by uttering 'talaq' thrice.

The controversial Islamic practice was struck down by the Supreme Court on August 22.

West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh, who is touring various districts in the state, said he had also come to know from party sources that Ishrat had joined the BJP in Howrah.

Repeated calls to Ishrat for a reaction went unanswered.

    some parties are really stuck by this masterstroke by Modi.
    Now they cannot even claim they are the saviours of Muslims.
    all kind of contradictory statements coming from thier supporters as well.

    BJP'S IDEOLOGY IS QUESTIONED. THE PARTY'S MAIN AGENDA & THEIR MAIN ENEMIES ARE MUSLIM & MINORITIES. AND WHY THEY WANT MUSLIM LADY IN THEIR PARTY? ONE CAN ASSUME THAT THEIR MAIN ENEMY IS NOT MUSLIMS. THE POWER GREEDY BJP IS READY TO GO TO ANY EXTENT TO KEEP THEMSELVES IN THE POWER.

    The paid agent of bjpee disclosed, the person who left his wife to suffer for life without divorcing claimed himself saviour of Muslim women. Talaq is not only weapon of Muslim men to settle marriage discord even women too have right to peacefully end their unpleasant marriage. And those who are against triple talaq are against the Quran teachings and and those who ignore it will not be considered as Muslims.

    What’s wrong. Congress n other sicular parties who always boast of champions of minority cause liberty freedom women rights, now won’t utter a word supporting this lady. Even communist brinda karat who mocks oppose some of the temples who bans women entry into , now writes long negative comments on Govt initiative on TTL. People like Prof Bhagwan Champa Prakash rai Mewani and Trupti Desai hailed as Hero’s n awarded by siculars parties now silent on this lady who faught with family society on her cause endangering her life.

    all are paid agents of bjp, they are using name of islam to fool people to hide their failure.
    not only others, even some muslims also greedy for money which bjp got through demonetization.
    if she don't believe in islam, anytime she can accept whichever religion she believe, but misguiding people in the name of islam not acceptable.

    We hear many Muslim women suffer because of this 'talaq' word uttering three times, though according to them in Islam it is not a legal talaq. There are some rules to follow. Thanks to the present government for highlighting this practice. In fact muslim women should fight for their rights and here also these men are suppressing them.

    Years ago 'Sati' is stopped, dowry system and child marriage are also stopped. In case it happens at least there is a privilege to fight this practice. Hats off to Modiji.

    Ishrat is a paid candidate of bjp and she has sold herself for few bucks. she will soon accept hindu religion and marry any hindu bjp leader (may be the top leader). Let us forget us as if she is a waste and we have clearned our home. She is an useless and untrustoworthy lady. She has betrayed her own religion for the sake of money. She has joined betrayers club with having member Modi Jai Akbar, Shahnawaz, Mukhtar Nakli etc etc who prefers not to be called as muslims. I hope Allah will teach them a good lesson in this world itself and they will be deserted.

    Most of us don't agree with BJP's policies, but calling her a non-believer just because she has joined BJP is uncalled for.
    How does she become less of a Muslim just because she joined BJP?
    It's no surprise that Muslim women are fighting for this cause because they suffer the most.
    She is fighting an evil in our society, and we should be supporting her. Instead, if we call her names, it just portrays us in a bad light.

    She should have fought for the abolition of INSTANT TT instead of TT as ordained .. All are paid agents of BJP.... and some muslims misused TT...

    Almighty has left a solid proof of Indian Hypocracy on the earth ,.. where Indian Muslims are jailed for 3 years if they use TT, where as Indian Hindus , who do not live with their legal wives, are allowed to roam freely on the streets and can occupy any positions...
