Actress and now, a Trinamool Congress MP, Nusrat Jahan, while attending an event, put forth her views on ‘love-jihad’. She categorically pointed out that ‘love’ and ‘jihad’ are two separate things and that they did not go hand-in-hand. She also spoke about how it is an individual’s choice to love whomsoever they want and be with them. The actor-turned-politician further stated, ‘Don’t make religion a political tool’. Ever since her marriage to businessman Nikhil Jain, the MP has faced severe backlash from religious sects and accused of disrespecting certain religions for practising both her’s and husband’s traditions.
