Actress Urfi Javed, the first Bigg Boss OTT contestant to be evicted, has dropped a bomb again. Frequently in the news due to her unique fashion choices, the actress made a categorical statement that she would never marry a Muslim man. She said in the course of the interview that she was currently reading SrimadBhagavadGita (the Gita).
Urfi Javed, who comes from a Muslim family that claims to be conservative notwithstanding the allegation that her father abused her, has spoken out also about being trolled every day, as well as her views on marriage and love, in an interview with IndiaToday.
Because she does not have a Godfather in the industry, Urfi Javed believes society disapproves when she flaunts bold looks. But, perhaps, more importantly, she is a Muslim.
“I am a Muslim girl. Most of the hate comments I receive are from Muslim people. They say that I am tarnishing the image of Islam. They hate me because Muslim men want their women to behave in a certain way. They want to control all the women in the community. I don’t believe in Islam because of this. The reason why they troll me is that I do not behave the way they expect me to as per their religion,” said Urfi Javed.
When asked if Javed will ever have an interfaith marriage, if she fell in love, she said, “I will never marry a Muslim guy. I do not believe in Islam and I do not follow any religion, so I do not care who I fall in love with. We should marry whoever we want to.”
Urfi Javed holds that religion should not be forced and everyone should have the free will to choose what religion they want to follow. And that’s something she’s learnt at home. She stated, “My father was a very conservative man. He left me and my siblings with our mother when I was 17 years old. My mother is a very religious woman, but she never forced her religion on us. My siblings follow Islam and I do not, but they never force it on me. That’s how it is supposed to be. You cannot force your religion upon your wife and children. It should come from the heart, otherwise neither you nor Allah would be happy.”
“I am reading the BhagavadGita right now. I just want to know more about that religion [Hinduism]. I am more interested in the logical part of it. I hate extremism, so I just want to extract the good part of the holy book.”
After her brief appearance on Bigg Boss OTT, Urfi Javed rose to prominence due to the various controversies she has courted.
