In one of the rarest event, first time Trinamool MP Nusrat Jahan addressed a press conference at her reception on July 3, Thursday. Nusrat Jahan married her long-time boyfriend Nikhil Jain, a businessman. Nusrat who gave a firm answer to the hardliners while she was at the Jagannath Rath Yatra, said that she won't make a comment as it is her reception.
Speaking about her beautiful maroon Lehenga that she wore for her reception and her feelings on the day of her receptions, Jahan said:
"It is no different from any girl how she feels when dressed like a bride. At my reception today, I feel exactly the same. I am excited, slightly nervous also. Nothing different, same feeling that every girl feels, every bride feels."
When asked about the hardliners she said: "It is my reception and I will only speak on happy news, thank you."
Her husband Nikhil said that he is really happy because finally they made it to the reception day after a lot of roller coaster ride in their relationship. "I support her in everything she does and pray that she is always happy," he added.
Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also attended the Reception ceremony and was snapped alongside the bride and the groom with another new MP Mimi Chakrovorty.
Affirming her stance on religious inclusivity, newly-elected Trinamool MP Nusrat Jahan, on Thursday, has said all religions speak of unity and peace adding that she believes in celebrating all festivals together, as she visited the ISKCON temple at Kolkata on the occasion of the Jagannath Rath Yatra which is currently held at Puri, along with other Trinamool leaders and party chief Mamata Banerjee.
"Whichever religion we belong to, we always celebrate all festivals together. It speaks of unity and peace. I am very glad that we are here," she said.
The West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee visited the ISKCON temple and raised slogans of 'Jai Jagannath' at a rally. Ironically she has raised issues against the BJP for 'making Jai Shri ram' as their political slogan.
Trinamool MP Nusrat Jahan, who recently married businessman Nikhil Jain in Turkey in June, took oath into parliament wearing a sindoor and bangles, which raised major controversy. A city-based Muslim cleric criticised Jahan for marrying a Jain and wearing sindoor, calling the practices un-Islamic.
"Islam says a Muslim can marry only a Muslim. I have got to know that Nusrat is a film actor and people in the cinema do not care about religious practices. They do what they have to," said Mufti Asad Quasmi of Madrasa Jamia Sheikh-ul-Hind.
