Triple Talaq bill : Petitioner Ishrat Jahan's lawyer too joins BJP in West Bengal

Days after Ishrat Jahan, one of the petitioner in the Triple Talaq case joined the BJP in West Bengal, her lawyer and activist Nazia Elahi Khan too joined the party at an event in Kolkata. The triple talaq bill is stuck in the Rajaya Sabha after it faced protest from the opposition who wants the bill to be referred to the standing committee of the parliament. In spite of all the roadblocks BJP is unlikely to let go the political benefits the party is going to get because of the issue. The controversial Islamic practice was struck down by the Supreme Court on August 22. Recently, the Lok Sabha has passed the triple talaq bill. Now, the bill has to be passed by the Upper House of Parliament, Rajya Sabha, to become a law.
