Triple talaq petitioner Ishrat Jahan’s children go missing

Kolkata (West bengal) [India]: Following the Supreme court‘s decision to strike down Triple Talaq, one of its petitioners, Ishrat Jahan has been allegedly facing continuous repercussions of fighting against the Triple Talaq.

In a recent case, which came to light on Thursday, Ishrat’s two children have gone missing. She said, “Both my children have gone missing, saw them last at 11:15 am. My brother & his wife are behind it”.

She has registered a complaint in Golabari Police Station, Howrah in the same regard.

Soon after the Apex court pronounced the judgment on August 22, the petitioner has been facing social boycott in Kolkata.

Also, Jahan’s lawyer, Nazia Elahi Khan earlier said that the females in the society have started boycotting them after Supreme Court’s decision.

The apex court struck down triple talaq and declared it unconstitutional in a 3-2 majority verdict. ( ANI)
