Triple Talaq petitioner Ishrat Jahan gets death threats, driven out of her home for participating in Hanuman Chalisa recital

The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha and local Hindu organisations have been organising mass Hanuman Chalisa recital events every Tuesday to protest against the blocking of roads during Friday Namaz.

Ishrat Jahan, the woman who was the petitioner in the historic case that eventually resulted in the Triple Talaq bill, has faced the wrath of her community members again. This time it is because she chose to attend a mass Hanuman Chalisa recital event.

As per reports, Ishrat Jahan had participated in the mass Hanuman Chalisa recital event at the Sankatmochan Hanuman temple in Dobson Road in Howrah. Following the event, Ishrat was allegedly threatened with her life and was asked by her landlord Manazir Hussain to vacate her house.

As per Ishrat’s complaint filed at the Golabadi station, on Wednesday, when she was returning home from her child’s school, she was stopped at the Nand Ghosh road by one Mustafa Ansari and her landlord Manazir Hussain along with over a hundred people.

Ishrat has alleged that the mob, led by Ansari and her landlord Hussain, pointed fingers at her and threatened her for participating in the Hanuman Chalisa event. They even asked him to vacate her house and leave the locality.

As per reports, Ishrat and her child were forced out of their home after the landlord’s threats. She has reportedly taken shelter in another person’s house at Rosemary Lane. She has stated that she lives alone with her child and is fearing for her safety after the Muslim community members have issued her threats.

Ishrat has said in her complaint that she is a citizen of a secular country and she has the full freedom to practice any religion and go anywhere. She has added that she has been receiving such death threats since she became the petitioner in the triple talaq case. She had stated that the has worn a Hijab to the event and the mob that threatened her had objected to that too.

It is notable here that the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha and local Hindu organisations have been organising mass Hanuman Chalisa recital events every Tuesday to protest against the blocking of roads during Friday Namaz. Ishrat Jahan, who had joined the BJP last year, had also distributed Hanuman Chalisa books among the public at the event.

This Tuesday, the Kolkata police had tried to disrupt the Hanuman Chalisa event at the Dobson Road. After the police action, BJYM workers had staged protests.
