Aligarh: Mohammad Mohsin threatened and beaten up after wife participated in BJP’s membership drive

Mohammad Mohsin, the victim and husband of Farheen Mohsin said that assailants threatened him to stop his wife speaking against the practice of triple talaq.

In a shocking incident, the husband of a local Muslim BJP leader was allegedly beaten near Delhi Gate in Aligarh by some people who were miffed about the participation of his wife in a membership drive of his party here.

Reportedly, Farheen Mohsin is a leader of the BJP minority wing in Aligarh. Her husband Mohammad Mohsin was allegedly attacked after she registered members under the BJP membership drive. According to Mohsin, Muslims women have aspirations from Prime Minister Modi after the triple talaq bill was passed. “Every Muslim woman wants to join BJP. Many orthodox people in my neighbourhood can’t see their women stepping out of their houses,” she said.

“They are threatening to stop the membership drive. I have received death threats asking me to stop my work, my husband was attacked due to the same reason. The incident took place on August 8. Some people came and abused us. They also have beaten up my husband,” Mohsin said.

Mohammad Mohsin, the victim and husband of Farheen Mohsin said that assailants threatened him to stop his wife speaking against the practice of triple talaq.

“Seven to eight people attacked me inside my office. They said my wife should not speak anything on triple talaq and this is not in their religion. They threatened that they will not let my wife work in BJP,” he said.

“A woman named Farheen Mohin has filed a complaint that some people threatened her over her participation in BJP membership drive and used violence. A case has been registered and the required action is being taken,” Additional Superintendent of Police, Aligarh (City) Abhishek told ANI.

In a historic act, triple talaq bill was passed by Narendra Modi led NDA government making a declaration of talaq-e-biddat in spoken, written or through SMS or WhatsApp or any other electronic chat illegal. Talaq-e-biddat refers to the pronouncement of talaq three times by a Muslim man in one sitting to his wife resulting in an instant and irrevocable divorce.

On August 1, President Ram Nath Kovind also gave his assent to the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage), Bill, 2019, which criminalises instant ‘triple talaq’ among Muslims and attracts a jail term of three years for the husband.
