First Ishrat Jahan, now Shayara BanoShe was one of the five petitioners who knocked the door of the Supreme Court. She, along with four others, sought justice in Triple Talaq case. She had suffered a lot in the hands of her husband and in-laws, she had to bear the unbearable pain of six abortions, and last but not the least, she was given 'talaq' by her husband. This lady from a lower middle-class background hailing from Uttarakhand fought an unequal and very arduous fight against the society to which she belongs and ultimately won justice.
Shayara Bano, one of the five petitioners in the Triple Talaq case, has now joined Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). She is the second petitioner after Ishrat Jahan from West Bengal who has joined BJP. She has said she is joining BJP because it was support of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi because of which they (triple talaq petitioners) ultimately got justice.
