Wearing ‘Sindoor’ doesn’t make me less of a Muslim: Sana Amin Sheikh of ‘Krishnadasi’

Mumbai: Popular TV actress Sana Amin Sheikh lashed out at her fans on social media who called her a non Muslim for her decision to wear sindoor and mangalsutra.

The actress is currently portraying a lead role of a Hindu girl on the show Krishnadasi in Colors  has to sport sindoor and wear mangalsutra.

One of her fans  said she wasn’t a true Muslim as she sports sindoor, “You are a Muslim and still you put sindoor.”

The 26-year-old actress took to her Facebook page and gave a befitting reply to all the haters asking them to get off from Instagram and Facebook.

She wrote on Facebook, “There are people who bash me asking why do I put sindoor after pack up. (btw it goes off only when i wash my hair), even if I wear it by choice. does it make me less of a Muslim.. my Nani and my Mum wore Mangalsutras.. which is a “Hindu thing. (sic)”

Does this make us less of a Muslim.. ?

I know i am going to get bashed at this too..

All those who r staunch muslims who write to me.. why don’t u get off insta and facebook.. Isn’t this entertainment.. why do u watch my soaps on tv.. Isn’t it Haraam.. ?

Will Allah put me in dozzak because i wore sindoor.. ?
And will u go to jannat inspite of the fact that u wasted your time on facebook and other entertainment sources and that u gave me hidayat.. ??”

She got married to TV director Ayaz Sheikh on January 15, 2016.
