BJP suspends party’s triple talaq face in Assam, Benazir Arfan suspended through WhatsApp message


BJP has suspended the face of its Triple Talaq campaign in Assam and state executive member, Benazir Arfan, for expressing her support for Rohingya Muslims, currently facing persecution in Myanmar.

Confirming the news, Arfan said that she was served the suspension letter through a WhatsApp message on Thursday by the party’s state president, Ranjeet Kumar Das. She’s been with the saffron party since 2012 and was BJP’s state executive body member.

Arfan told News18, “I have been insulted and will take this issue up at the highest level of the party.”

Arfan, who also contested the assembly elections on BJP ticket in 2016, said that she had posted a Facebook message asking people to join in but “inadvertently, I used the wrong word ‘protests’ for what was a prayer meeting.”

More than three lakh Rohingya Muslims have been forced to leave Rakhine state in Myanmar, where Buddhist terrorists and Burmese army have been brutally killing them allegedly at the behest of Aung San Suu Kyi’s order. More than 500 people have been brutally killed and hundreds of villages, where Rohingya Muslims lives, set on fire.

The videos of Buddhist terrorists committing their act of brutalities have b=gone viral on social media platforms. The United Nations and other Muslim countries have come under severe attack for not doing enough to stop the state-sponsored genocide in Myanmar.

Turkey has been the only country, which has taken a stand on the issue President’s wife, Emine Erdogan, visiting Bangladesh earlier this month to extend her country’s support to Rohingya refugees.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had spoken to his Bangladesh counterpart Md Abdul Hamid and supported measures taken by Bangladesh over the Rohingya refugee issue last week. He had reported assured Bangladesh of every help in efforts to look after Rohingya Muslims.
