Hats off to Hindu parents of the Muslim girl: Communal Harmony Project-3


It's an amazing story. The eight-year-old girl, Naseema, was sold in her childhood but a Brahmin couple gave shelter to her, brought her up like their own child, educated and married her off to a Muslim youth working in Middle-East.

The girl's father Ibrahim rolled 'bidis' and his wife had died. The youngest, Naseema, was one day picked up by a relative who had sold her when her father was away.

For two years she worked as domestic servant until she escaped. And when she reached the Hindu couple they made sure that she was brought up as a Muslim, telling her about her faith and even making her wear a burqa.

Jaya Menon tells this astounding story in Indian Express from Vellore. She reports that Naseema and her husband used detective service to trace her father recently. Ibrahim Sharif, 65, is now deaf and mute but heard his daughter Nasima's voice on phone and 'began to utter noises'.

He works at a roadside tea shop and is about to leave to Jeddah to meet her daughter and son-in-law. All these years she had remembered her father taking her to school and carrying her as a kid on her shoulders and now comes the reunion after 24 years. It is a great story and must read. Read it here.

Now read this emotional story:

A Muslim couple raise a 'Hindu daughter', as per her religion of birth, marry her off to a Sharma family. Do read and share in the times when online bigots, trolls and communal minded elements are spreading falsehoods about communal harmony and Hindu-Muslim relations in India.

The Story: Hindu couple marries off their 'Hindu daughter' in Sharma family

[Harmony exists all around us but is often ignored. Instead, stories of hate, discord and communalism get spread easily.

There are a million examples in our daily lives across India but they don't get promoted, hence, news of hate and discord gets heard more. Let's change it, now. This is a small attempt to change it through Communal Harmony Project]

There is hope I guess.
Thanks for posting some heartening news; there's such a dearth of it these days.

Its touching indeed. To promote inter-faith harmony, we need to project such stories at a grand scale.

Can we reproduce it on our site, with credits of course?

THE STORY IS VERY TOUCHING. BUT UNFORTUNATELY THERE ARE GUYS LIKE WASEEM WHO STILL BELIEVES THAT BRAHMIN IS A KAFIR AND IT SEEMS THAT THIS GOOD DEED WILL MAKE HIM GO TO HEAVEN. WASEEM THIS THOUGHT OF YOURS WILL MAKE YOU GO TO HELL. DONT GET PARANOID. ALL THE RELEGION WILL UNDERSTAND ISLAM IF MUSLIMS THEMSELVES FEELS GOOD ABOUT OTHER.

Waseem,
You need not to worry about that Brahman couple. As at the end of the day we all revert back to our respective dwellings, so is for that Brahman couple. If Jannat is meant for the Muslims and Heaven for the Christians then a 'Swarg' also exists for gentle and pious Hindus. I am sure this noble Brahman couple will go there. Happyz Endings (Om Shanti Om).

THERE IS A BIG QUESTION MARK ?

LET METALK ABOUT INDIA ...(BUT THIS INCLUDE THE WORLD AS WELL )
A MUSLIM BOY CAN MARRY A HINDU GIRL OR ANY OTHER CASTE GIRL ....

EXAMPLE---- AKBAR AND JODHA BAI

SHARUKH KHAN WITH GORI

ARBAS KHAN WITH MALIKA ARORA KHAN

AND LOT OF OTHERS ...

BUT A MUSLIM GIRL CANNOT MARRY HINDU BOY ...WHY ?

HAVE NO EXAMPLE TO GIVE CANNOT FIND ONE ....

ANON dear

That's the problem. There are millions of such marriages but you won't remember:

1. Madhubala (She was Muslim) married to Kishor
2. Waheeda Rahman married to Dr Bali
3. Nargis married to Sunil Dutt
4. Zareena Wahab married to Aditya Pancholi
5. Suzanne Khan married to Hrithik....

I have no interest in Bollywood but in a few seconds I could remember 50 more. Please try to be sensible and don't go by popular myths that exist against Muslims.

lets not remember tat couple as brahmin but indians.VICTORY FOR INDIA

GV said...

How come the story doesn't mention any thing about the brahmin couple. Naseema is never really thankful to them for being Kafirs? I can understand her search for her lost father, but what about the relationship with her adopted parents? It is could also be a very poor journalism..

Anonymous said...

yup! the answer is suzane khan and hrithhik roshan, ajit agarkar and fatima agarkar

The Biggest questions is.....WILL ANY MUSLIM DO SUCH THINGS???? And about the muslim lady marrying Hindus man...Are they leading a muslim life or hindu life???
