It has been nearly five months since the music composer Wajid Khan breathed his last due to a cardiac arrest. His family members and friends are still struggling to come in terms with his unfortunate death. Amid this, his wife Kamalrukh Khan has opened up for the first time about her ordeal of marrying the late music composer. She talked about the suffering that she is facing in an inter-caste marriage. In her recent social media post, the Wajid’s wife has poured out her heart about being harassed to convert to Islam.

While divulging the details into her married life, she wrote, “I am Parsi and he was Muslim. We were what you would call "college sweethearts". Eventually, when we did get married, we married for love under the Special Marriages Act (an act that upholds the right to practice one's own religion post marriage). I want to share my ordeal and my experience in an inter-caste marriage - that in this day and age, a woman can face such prejudice, suffering and discrimination in the name of religion is a complete shame...and an eye-opener.”

She further said, “My simple Parsi upbringing was very democratic in its value system. However, post marriage, this same independence, education and democratic value system was the biggest problem for my husband's family. An educated, thinking, independent woman with an opinion was just not acceptable. And resisting the pressures of conversion was sacrilege.”

Wajid’s wife also said that Khan’s family has used “scare tactics to make her convert included taking her to court seeking divorce”, adding that she was devastated, and felt betrayed. She also revealed that her in-laws have been harassing her to convert to Islam, adding that she will keep on fighting for her rights and for the inheritance of her kids. She said in the post, “The harassment from his family continues. I stand fighting for the rights and inheritance of my children which have been usurped by them. All this because of their hatred against me for not converting to Islam. Such deep-rooted hatred that even the death of a loved one could not move.”

Check out her post below:

 

Kamalrukh also pointed out that the “anti-conversion law should be nationalized in order to reduce the struggle for women like her who are fighting the toxicity of religion in inter-caste marriages.” She added that the religion should be a cause for celebration of differences not separation of families. “All religions are the path to the divine. Live and let live should be the only religion we all practice,” she said while summing up the post.”

Her demand for anti conversion law is the only way to redress such demands for conversion by Islamic husbands and his family . Deterrent punishment should be imposed for such crime .

Incredibly sad. Growing up, my muslim and Christian friends wouldn't even accept 'Prashad'. While we easily entered their worships of face, to marvel at the architecture and peace and quiet their places of worship offers. Our open appreciation of their places of worship showed our democratic upbringing and not just the beauty of their religion. PINVILLA, Please post this!

Not everyone is forced to convert, I know many inter religious couple who stuck to their religion. That said, this is pathetic and nobody should force anybody to forcibly do anything leave alone change religions. But I am against bills against so called love jihad sort of nonsense. An adult should be able to marry whoever he or she wants, you can't bring a law against it

I fail to understand how such a lovely and beautiful lady can be harassed by the stupid family .They should be locked up and action taken against them .

I entirely agree with Kamalrukh. She is the live example of harassment at the hands of stupid and rigid cast following by Islam . The simple successful formula for love marriage is to enjoy togetherness of two loving birds and forgetting the role of religion.

They sound very liberal minded when on TV and this is what happens at home. Secularism applies only for majority religion, minorities enjoy all the perks

oh god she is so beautiful, people are just ruthless, anything to hate such a lovely woman , her religion was same before marriage too then why force her to change it??

Please note that this bent of mind is universal- educated or not. They are wolves in sheep skin and fanatics to the core. They marry inter faith with a design to convert and swell their numbers. Secularism goes to Hell......this is the best way to infiltrate and expand !! All these emotional photos are nautanki. All deception/coercion are fair and justified for CONVERSION......till one converts, killing the bigot is justified in the name of the peaceful religion.

A Parsi women who marries a non-Parsi man was automatically considered to have converted to the religion of her husband. She was forced to renunciate her identity as a Parsi. She no longer had access to the legal protections and religious spaces that are governed by the Parsi trusts. This included places of worship, known as Agyaris or fire temples, and sacred burial sites. On December 14, 2017 Supreme court overruled the verdict of High Court of Gujarat which stated the denial of parsi woman to enter fire temple. A parsi woman marrying a non-parsi is now allowed to enter the fire temple and tower of silence and participate in other religious activities.
