Ishrat Jahan, one of the crusaders against triple talaq case, has joined the BJP. According to media reports BJP’s state unit general secretary Sayantan Basu revealed this information on Sunday.
“Ishrat Jahan joined the BJP at our Howrah office yesterday (Saturday),” Basu told PTI.
Sources said Ishrat was felicitated by the Howrah BJP unit on Saturday and inducted into the party.
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 Supreme Court on August 22 struck down the controversial Islamic practice.
However, no formal announcement has been done by Ishrat Jahan.
