There would be only one caution thrown to me – beta, kisi se bhi shaadi karna buss Muslim se nahi Although family is a Hindu Brahmin family, we were never one of those rigid ones.
Her parents caution her “marry anyone but not muslim and she goes to muslim, thats the beauty of it;)
We were a relatively open-minded family except for the fact that I was told I could never fall in love with a Muslim. Initially, I never questioned this… Somehow, I never had any close Muslim friends so it really didn’t matter.
Slowly, as I started growing up I questioned my parent’s.
Until, one fine day I met a guy at a friend’s party, we started talking, got along really well…and he happened to be a Muslim.
We were meeting, dating, sneaking in and out of houses but I hated the fact that I had to lie to my family every single time I met him.
Many other hindu girls have the same story– comments / reactions.
Some h guy got mad seeing bengali girls supporting it, getting used to it.
Musalmans are amazing.
