Jharkhand: Muslim woman assaulted by husband for voting BJP, FIR lodged

On being informed by family members that Sahana voted for BJP instead of Congress, husband Kudus Ansari and son Osama allegedly assaulted her with sticks.

In a shocking incident a Muslim woman in Chanho district, Ranchi, Jharkhand, was allegedly beaten up by her husband and family members for casting her vote in favour of BJP.

Impressed by PM Narendra Modi’s policies, Sahana Khatoon, decided to vote for the BJP government in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. Irked by this decision, her husband Kudus Ansari along with his family members, allegedly assaulted the woman.

In an FIR lodged in the Chanho police station, Sahana Khatoon said that when she returned home after casting her vote on April 29, her family inquired as to whom did she vote for. On learning that Sahana voted for BJP, Ansari’s son, Osama first assaulted her and asked her to leave the house saying that she was a stigma on the entire Muslim community.

Sahana reportedly resisted saying that it was her democratic right to vote for whomever she wants to. This did not go down well with the family. Kudus Ansari who was away from home returned on May 4. On being informed by family members that Sahana voted for BJP instead of Congress, husband Kudus Ansari and son, Osama allegedly assaulted her with sticks.

Sahana left home with her children to return to her parents who lived in Pandra village in Kuru Tehsil, Lohardaga, Jharkhand.

Sahana returned to her village on Sunday to file an FIR against her husband and in-laws. Meanwhile, Chanho police station in-charge, Rajendra Rajak said that an FIR has been registered. After the investigation, appropriate action will be taken against the culprits, said the police officer.
