Urfi Javed who hails from a conservative Muslim family expressed her opinions on marriage and love. Urfi Javed says she will never marry a Muslim guy. She also gave a clear-cut explanation as to why she will never marry a man of her religion. She further added that she is currently reading the Bhagavad Gita.
Urfi said she is receiving most of the hate remarks are from Muslim people. They hate her because Muslim men want their women to “behave in a certain way”. “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 don’t behave the way they expect me to as per their religion.”
Urfi was also asked if she will ever tie the knot with someone out of her community if she fell in love. To which, Urfi says, “I will never marry a Muslim guy. I don’t believe in Islam and I don’t follow any religion, so I don’t care who I fall in love with. We should marry whoever we want to.”
She also stressed the fact that religion should not be forced. “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 don’t, 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,” says Urfi.
The actress is currently reading the Bhagavad Gita and expressed her interest to learn more about Hinduism. “I am reading the Bhagavad Gita 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.”
