Muslim cleric attacks TMC MP Nusrat Jahan for attending Durga Puja festivities, says it haram in Islam

The MP had on Sunday (October 6) offered Ashtami prayers and also played the traditional Dhaak at Kolkata’s prominent Suruchi Sangha Durga Puja in New Alipore, Kolkata, West Bengal.

The TMC MP Nusrat Jahan, who has been under fire from Islamists for embracing Hindu customs ever since she got married to Nikhil Jain in June this year, has yet again been targetted by a Muslim cleric for participating in Durga Puja festivities in West Bengal’s Kolkata.

A cleric from the Darul Uloom Deoband in Uttar Pradesh, named Mufti Azad Wasmi, has slammed the Trinamool Congress leader saying that a Muslim should not offer prayers to any God other than Allah. “She has been participating in such prayers, there is nothing new in this. However, under Islam, a follower is not allowed to offer prayers to any God other than Allah, this is ‘haram’. She should change her name and religion,” the cleric says on camera.

The MP had on Sunday (October 6) offered Ashtami prayers and also played the traditional Dhaak at Kolkata’s prominent Suruchi Sangha Durga Puja in New Alipore, Kolkata.

Nusrat Jahan who is a Member of Parliament from Basirhat was seen offering prayers along with her husband Nikhil Jain draped in a Saree flaunting her Bindi and Sindoor.

She was also recorded playing the traditional Dhaak after offering prayers to Maa Durga.

Nusrat Jahan has found herself at the receiving end of the Islamists’ fury ever since she got married to a Hindu Jain man. She was first targeted when Nusrat walked into the Parliament to take oath as an MP while wearing sindoor and bangles, traditionally worn by Hindu married women. 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.

Soon after, the same Deoband cleric, Mufti Asad Wasmi, issued a fatwa against newly elected TMC MP Nusrat Jahan for marrying outside her religion and wearing the Hindu adornments of a married woman like Sindoor and Mangalsutra.

However, undeterred by the controversies, Nusrat had then stressed religious inclusivity while stating that all religions give the message of peace and unity. She is also on record to say that she believes in celebrating all festivals together. She had said that she still remains a Muslim and no one should be commenting on what she chooses to wear.
