The actress took to Twitter and said, ‘Paying heed or reacting to comments made by hardliners of any religion only breeds hatred and violence, and history bears testimony to that’, she also went to on post a note saying that she represented inclusive India and her faith was beyond her attire.
Nusrat has faced the ire of the clerics and radical groups after she recently got married to a businessman named Nikhil Jain.
Clerics from UP’s Deoband had objected to Nusrat’s attire and marriage claiming it was anti-Islamic to marry a muslim person. The actress was previously targeted for wearing a western attire to Lok Sabha where she along with her friend and fellow TMC MP Mimi Chakarbarty were slammed for posing in front of Lok Sabha
While her own party has maintained a stony silence over this controversy, BJP and Congress has backed the young leader over the controversy. Both the parties have maintained that it is unfair to target a person over their personal choice of attire.
