As #BoycottTanishq continues to trend on social media after the jewellery brand released an advertisement, many people — from actors, TV personalities to writers — have come forward to speak in its support, with many sharing instances of interfaith marriages in their family, amid allegations against the ad for promoting ‘love jihad’.
Actor Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub’s wife Rasika Agashe recently shared a glimpse of her baby shower ceremony and captioned it, “Meri gobharai…socha share kar dun…(My baby shower…thought let me share it)…and before crying out love jihad, let’s learn about special marriage act”.
Writer Mrinal Pande wrote, “My daughter married an Indian Muslim in USA, neither converted. Both mothers flew there when our first grandchild arrived. Together we cooked, cleaned, entertained family/friends. At night groaning Ya Allah and He Ram, giggled and slept on hard mattresses.”
