I am Muslim Qaum ki Beti.— Gems of Bollywood (@GemsOfBollywood) February 18, 2022
I am Queen of Jannat ki Hours
I dress in full black parda.
I do Tauba for not wearing black parda so far.
Not doing Parda is way of Kafir.
Those who don’t do parda are Satanic.

The song essentially promotes Muslim women’s burqas, which cover their entire bodies, including their eyes. The actual name of the song is “Main Bhi Parda Karungi”. It is written by Mufti Kausar Roohani and sung by Zainab Roohani. It is produced by Roohani Media which is based in Pakistan. The following are translations of some of the lyrics used in the song.
Main Muslim Qoam ki beti hun, main parda karti hun
Allah rasul ke huqmon ki, main parwaah karti hun
Main muslim qoam ki beti hun main parda karti hun
I am a woman of Muslim faith, hence I do put a veil
I do worry about the orders of the prophet
I am a woman of Muslim faith, hence I do put a veil
Mere rab ki taar pardah ai, mere nabi ki chaahat parda hai
Paigaam jahaan ko ye dungi, main waada karti hun
My god wants a veil for me, my prophet wants a veil for me
I’ll convey this message to the world, I do hereby promise
Parde mein rehna hi meri haya ki quwat hai, parde mein rehna hi mere husn ki zinat hai
Fitnon se bara’at pardah hai, Quran ki hidayat pardah hai
Jannat ki khud ko hooron ki main malqa karti hun, main muslim qoam ki beti hun main parda karti hun
To live under the veil is the strength of my decency, to live under the veil is the beauty of my body
Veil provides safety from calamities, the advice of the Quran is a veil
I am the queen among the beautiful women in heaven, I am a woman of Muslim faith, hence I do put a veil
Aaghaz gunahon ka nazron se hota hai, ehsaas sazaon ka kabron se hota hai
Ab tak kiye gunahon ki main tauba karti hun, main muslim qoam ki beti hun main parda karti hun
The criminal activity starts with eyes, the realization of crime happens with graves
I do repent for the previous mistakes of my life, I am a woman of Muslim faith, hence I do put a veil
Kuffar ki aadat hai be dharmo aba rehna, shaitani bagawat hai besharmo haya rehna
Kuffar ke harbe jhaanso ki main chinta karti hun, main muslim qoam ki beti hun main parda karti hun
It is the habit of disbelievers (non-Muslims) to stay without faith, it is a rebellious evil to stay without decency
I am worried about the traps of disbelievers (non-Muslims), I am a woman of Muslim faith, hence I do put a veil
