The Congress on Tuesday ecstatically announced that Hasin Jahan, model and estranged wife of Indian cricketer Md Shami, had joined the party. Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam welcomed Hasin into the party at a function.
A tweet by the Mumbai Congress said, “Mumbai Congress President @sanjaynirupam today welcomed Model Hasin Jahan , wife of Cricketer Mohammed Shami to Congress family.”

Hasin had shot to fame earlier this year after she sensationally accused her husband of indulging in an extra-marital affair alleging that he was seeing a model from Karachi. Among other things Hasin had also accused Shami of being involved in match-fixing.
The BCCI, which had withheld Shami’s annual contract, had later exonerated the Indian pacer from all charges. Though Hasin later made several attempts to make peace with Shami, the latter refused to reciprocate.
Frustrated by her failed attempts to reconcile with Shami, Hasin had resumed her modelling career in July this year.
Shami had recently sarcastically said that he planned to invite his wife Hasin Jahan to be ‘present’ at his second marriage. This was after Jahan alleged that he was planning to marry the ‘sister-in-law of his elder brother’ five days after Eid. She was reported to have said, “Shami wants to marry the sister-in-law of his elder brother five days after Eid and that’s why he has offered me money and asked for the divorce.”
In response, the Indian pacer had told a website, “I am in much trouble due to my first marriage. Do you think I am mad that I will marry another girl?… Hasin has brought a lot of allegations about me in last few months and this is an addition to that. That’s good, then I will invite her to be present at my second marriage (laughing).”
Shami had later taken an extraordinary step to go public with his denial of all the charges made against him by his wife. Taking to Twitter, he had said, “Hi I’m Mohammad Shami. Ye jitna bhi news hamara personal life ke bare may chal raha hai, ye sab sarasar jhut hai, ye koi bahut bada humare khilap sajish hai or ye mujhe Badnam karne or mera game kharab karne ka kosis ki ja rahi hai. (The news about my personal life is false. This a big conspiracy against me and the motive is to defame me. This is a ploy to spoil my performance on the field.”
