The Trinmool Congress MP Nusrat Jahan always is on point of Muslim clerics who often slammed her for wearing sindoor and chuda, dancing for Durga Puja and now celebrating the Durga Ashtmi. A prominent Muslim cleric taunted on Nusrat that popular Bengali actor should change her name and religion because she is defaming Islam and the Muslims.
Mufti Asad qasmi an Islamic cleric associated with Darul uloom Deoband told that “this is nothing new. She has been offering pooja to Hindu Gods and goddess despite the fact that Islam orders its followers to pray ‘Allah’, what she has done is ‘Haraam’(Sinful).” He further adds that “She has also married outside of her religion, she should change her name and religion. Islam does not need people who assume Muslim names and defame Islam and Muslims”.
Nusrat Jahan was seen in red saree and sporting sindur along with her husband Nikhil Jain attending Durga Ashtmi. She was also seen reciting hymns being recited by the priest. She also played Dhak (drum) and danced joyously.
Jahan told that “she has prayed for peace and prosperity of all, she said that in Bengal they celebrate all festivals together and she always enjoys being part of the celebration.”
After being asked for controversy, she said that she does not bother about controversy, controversy does not touch her, she represent an inclusive India.
