Conversion: How Sharmila Tagore became Ayesha Begum
Converting for "love." Deracinated Hindus in Bollywood.
From Sharmila Tagore to Ayesha Begum or Ayesha Sultana #LoveJihad, #SexJihad
This is from a Times of India story about celebrities who converted to Izlam. In Sharmila’s case, the conversion happened before her marriage.
Sharmila Tagore: The gorgeous actress Sharmila Tagore, who has been awarded the Padma Bhushan by the Government of India in 2013, has also converted to Islam. She fell in love with the late cricketer, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, and converted to Islam before marrying him.
She was born a Hindu, but converted her name to Ayesha Begum after her marriage. The couple was blessed with three children – Saif Ali Khan, Saba Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan.
There is probably zero self respect or honor for one’s family and ancestors when one decides to convert. It seems so in the case of Sharmila. She never took up itsy bitsy bikini roles after becoming Ayesha. Also, the corrupt and paid media continues to use her pre-conversion name to fool others in Indian society.
This is an excerpt from an interview from 2012 conducted by Times of India:
Has Kareena converted to Islam?
She hasn’t converted, but she is now the Begum of Pataudi. He is the Nawab, so Kareena is the Begum. Saif is not comfortable with it. But I say why shouldn’t one take traditions seriously. He says people may mock at him saying, ‘kahaan ki riyasat’ and all that. I understand that, but when you go to Pataudi, there are people who follow it. You are who you are, why should you deny your past? Maybe he feels that his father was so well known as the Nawab of Pataudi and filling in his shoes will be difficult. But slowly, he will get used to it.
Converts are often more jih@di than those born into a religion. Just notice how Sharmila talks about Kareena. Most likely the Kapoors have already embraced Izlam decades ago and therefore Kareena probably had no need to convert to Izlam – she’s already probably a Muslim even before marriage. Who really knows? But it seems highly likely that Taimur ki ammi is a born jih@an?
