Islamists attack newly elected TMC MP Nusrat Jahan for wearing Sindoor in parliament

Jahan took oath as a member of the 17th Lok Sabha with her post-marriage name Nusrat Jahan Ruhi Jain today. She also wore a saree and sindoor while appearing in the parliament for the oath-taking.

The newly elected TMC lawmaker from Basirhat, Nusrat Jahan who recently married her long-time beau businessman Nikhil Jain found herself at the receiving end of the Islamists’ fury. Chauvinistic Muslims resorted to insulting her with bigoted comments online for apparently marrying outside her community. They also seemed unhappy about her embracing her husband’s culture in the Indian Parliament.

Jahan took oath as a member of the 17th Lok Sabha with her post-marriage name Nusrat Jahan Ruhi Jain today. She also wore a saree and sindoor while appearing in the parliament for the oath-taking. However, this was not acceptable to a certain section of fundamentalists who started hurling abuses at her. These radical Islamists were visibly rattled about the fact that a Muslim actor and politician had converted to Hinduism and was espousing Hindu cultural practices in the Parliament.

Nusrat married her long-time beau, businessman Nikhil Jain in Turkey on June 19, 2019. She had applied sindoor, essentially a Hindu tradition followed by married Hindu women that didn’t sit well with the Islamic religious supremacists. In response, they started reviling Nusrat for embracing Hindu cultural mores and traditions.

Nusrat also invoked chants of Vande Mataram towards the end of her oath, thereby further inviting the wrath of the Islamic zealots online. Many online extremists also called her a Kaafir- a pejorative reference used for non-Muslims.

Such is the profound hatred for Hindu traditions and cultural practices among these online Islamist extremists that they don’t hesitate in expressing their unmitigated vitriol and utter disdain for cultural practices and traditions that form an integral part for the majority of the people in the country.
