ne of the most confused women Hasin Jahan was inducted to the Congress by the party’s Mumbai President Sanjay Nirupam, who himself is another confused politician. He has yearned for opportunities and finally settled with Congress. Hasin Jahan had made headlines earlier in the year when she alleged that her husband, Mohammed Shami, had abused her physically and mentally and was involved in several extramarital affairs. On April 10, Jahan had filed a domestic violence case against Shami and others in Kolkata’s Alipore Court and also sought maintenance from her husband. Shami, however, has denied all the accusations made by his estranged wife. Before marriage, she used to work as a model. She always wanted to become a successful model. She even wanted to work in the entertainment industry, but due to family commitments, she left modeling.
She belongs to a Muslim Bengali family. Her father Mohammed Hassan is a Kolkata-based businessman and runs a transportation business. Her mother is a homemaker. She first married Sheikh Saifuddin of her native locality in 2002 and was blessed with two daughters. After having kids, she wanted to continue with her studies, but her husband’s family was against it, which later became the core reason for their divorce in 2010. On June 6, 2014, she got married for the second time to her boyfriend-cum-Indian cricketer Mohammed Shami. In December 2016, her husband Shami posted a pic of himself with her, which was criticised by fanatic Muslims as she was wearing a sleeveless dress. Those days Shami stood for her against all odds and no one remotely imagined that they have any differences; soon after this incidence, she alleged that her husband and his family tortured her for more than two years and also tried to kill her several times. She even previously informed the Jadavpur Police Station in January 2018 about him and his family verbally but at that time, she didn’t take any legal action. She also alleged that her husband has extramarital affair. She posted his chat screenshots with other women on different social media platforms. According to her, her husband has also married a girl from Pakistan.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) withheld Shami from their national contracts list as a result of the allegations. On March 22, 2018, the BCCI cleared Shami’s central contract after its Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) cleared him of corruption charges. One fine day, all of sudden, his career got trashed and shattered. Jahan spread her winds in open and resumed the headlines by doing workouts, making rounds in Bollywood and finally joined politics. She has appeared on national television for various debates but still, she is not very seasoned with political updates. Meanwhile, Shami has reportedly asked for a gunner for his security as the dispute between him and Hasin Jahan continues. It all started in March 2018 when Jahan took to Facebook to post screenshots of Shami’s alleged chats with other women.
Over the next few weeks, both Hasin and Shami took potshots at each other and issued strong statements in the media. Both parties accused the other of lying and Shami questioned Hasin’s mental health. Hasin had also mentioned Shami’s involvement in match-fixing, which forced the BCCI to withhold his central contract. But, after a thorough investigation from BCCI’s Anti-Corruption Unit, he was cleared of any such thing and BCCI offered him a fresh central contract, which it had withheld following his wife’s police complaint. The latest news that’s coming from the quarters is that Shami has submitted an application to the District Magistrate of Amroha for a gunner while the District Magistrate Hemant Kumar has asked him to complete the formalities on the application. Shami recently played for India in their 4-1 loss to England in the five-match Test series but his individual performance with the ball was widely appreciated. Shami was the fourth highest wicket-taker in the series with 16 wickets in five matches. Among Indians, only Ishant Sharma topped him with 18 wickets in as many matches. Bowlers were praised for their performance in England where they continuously put India in positions to win the matches and Shami was a crucial part of the bowling unit and one who Captain Virat Kohli brought in to pick wickets. According to media reports, Shami stays with his family in his village Sahaspur Ali Nagar whenever he is not playing with India and had also kept a personal security guard in the past. However, the guard was later removed. Last month, it was also reported that Jahan lost the maintenance case against Shami after the Alipore court turned down her demand of Rs 10 lakh per month. However, the judge approved the maintenance claim for their daughter Aairah Shami, according to which Shami will be paying Rs 80,000 per month. Recent reports have also suggested that last month Jahan sent Shami’s cricket teacher Suman Chakravarty to ask for money for the admission of their daughter in a school in Kolkata. However, angry by the fact that she used a third person to ask for money for Aairah, Shami refused.
After the entire above saga, she joined the party that is almost sunk and there are many women takers who are fighting in between due to the distribution of powers; only time will tell how Jahan and Congress get mutually benefitted.
