Ishrat Jahan from West Bengal, who had filed a petition over the practice of Triple Talaq, on Thursday, alleged that she has been harassed and received threats to her life after she attended a Hindu religious event, said the police.
It is reported that Jahan had attended BJP’s ‘Hanuman Chalisa Paath’, following which some people from her community have threatened and rebuked her for attending the event wearing a Hijab.
Ishrat Jahan had joined the BJP last year.
According to Jahan, she attended the event as many Hindus take part in offering Namaz and she doesn’t see anything wrong in it.
“Now I am being pressurised and people are suggesting to beat me up and chase me out of the house. I am being abused and threatened with dire consequences. I stay alone with my son and anything can happen to me,” Jahan said.
On Wednesday, she had filed a complaint at Golabari police station in Howrah.
“We have received Ishrat Jahan’s complaint where she has mentioned about threats and named her in-laws. Steps are being taken as per her complaint,” an officer of Howrah city police said.
Jahan, who was one of the petitioners in the Triple Talaq Case in the Supreme Court, was divorced by her husband over the phone from Dubai in 2014.
