Recently, “Krishnadasi” actress Sana Amin Sheikh became a target of social media agitators for wearing vermillion (sindoor) and a mangalsutra.
She plays the role of a Hindu woman in the show “Krishnadasi,” and there were lot of anti-Sana posts saying that she is not a “real Muslim.”
In a Facebook post, she told those who called her a “non-Muslim that her mother and grandmother wore Mangalsutras and that does not make them less of a Muslim. She asked the trolls to stop watching her show and stay away from social media.
Here are her posts: There r people who bash me asking why do i put sindoor after pack up.. (btw it goes off only when i wash my hair), even if i wear it by choice.. does it make me less of a Muslim.. my Nani and my Mum wore Mangalsutras.. which is a “Hindu thing”
Does this make us less of a Muslim.. ? I know i am going to get bashed at this too.. All those who r staunch muslims who write to me.. why don’t u get off insta and facebook.. Isn’t this entertainment.. why do u watch my soaps on tv.. Isn’t it Haraam.. ? Will Allah put me in dozzak because i wore sindoor.. ? And will u go to jannat inspite of the fact that u wasted your time on facebook and other entertainment sources and that u gave me hidayat.. ??
