Mohena Kumari slams trolls who questioned her for wearing a veil during wedding celebrations
Mohena Kumari, who got married in 2019 donned a red lehenga with a veil on her wedding day, slammed trolls who questioned her for covering her face under a veil. The princess and actor clarified that it was not forced on her and that she preferred to do so.
Two years ago, she wished her fans on New Year by sharing a family portrait from her royal wedding. She texted, “Wish you all a Happy New Year from the Rewa and Rawat Family with a message to spread Love , Peace , feeling of Unity , Happiness and good health to the World and our Country. #fromustoyou.”
The women wore lehengas with their heads covered with dupattas and the men are in sherwanis and turbans. Meanwhile, Mohena is the only one who covered her face with a veil.
A user responded to the post by saying, “because these are people who follow their so-called male-dominated rituals. Even education doesn’t get them a brain.”
Meanwhile, another user went on to say, “you’re so backward!” Another user wrote, “Nothing to do with any particular religion.. but such rituals, whether in any religion, are incorrect owing to the fact that such rituals are always meant for a woman whether in any religion .. and being the aware and the enlightened person that you are, you can always choose not to follow such rituals which somewhere surely are responsible for women inequality !”
Giving a sharp reply, she wrote, “Even Christians have a veil when they marry…and so do Muslims…I guess they are all uneducated too! Its an age old Rajput tradition which Rajput women follow when they get married. This was not forced upon me…I chose to do it.”
