Shivam Dube’s marriage gave false impression of Hindu marrying Muslim girl

Shivam Dube seen in the posture of Muslim 'dua' and his wife Anjum Khan caught not sporting vermillion made it clear who had converted

Indian cricketer Shivam Dube married his long time girlfriend Anjum Khan in Mumbai two days ago, or so said the headline. He gave this information through his account, after which many fans congratulated him.

But then some of them noticed him in a posture of seeking ‘dua’, Islamic style. It was evident he had converted to get his bride.

Shivam still his name?

Shivam Dube shared photos of his wedding on . He wrote in the caption, “We loved with a love which was more than love … And now this is where our forever starts (sic)… Just Married… 16-07-2021.”

One of the photos Shivam Dube shared shows the ring ceremony with his bride Anjum Khan. Another shows the bride and groom raising their hands in prayers the way Muslims do.

Fans protest

Pictures of Shivam Dube seeking ‘dua’ went viral on social media soon. Many objected to the fact that Anjum Khan was not sporting vermilion whereas Shivam had embraced Muslim customs.

A fan compared the marriage with that of Nusrat Jahan and Nikhil who separated recently.

A nikah with a non-Muslim is not permitted in Islam and this was an Islamic wedding, not one held in a magistrate’s court under the Special Marriage Act. However, his family refused to clarify whether he is now a Muslim.

Shivam Dube, who played Ranji Trophy for Mumbai, has been a part of Virat Kohli’s team in the IPL. He joined this year. Now he will be seen in the IPL to be held in the UAE.

Cricketer Shivam Dube played his first international match (T20I) against Bangladesh in November 2019. He participated in 13 T20 Internationals and 1 ODI match for Team India. He was last seen at the international level in the T20 match against New Zealand in February 2020.
