Earlier today we informed you how Kamalrukh Khan, wife of late music composer Wajid Khan, has accused his family of harassing her to convert to Islam. Kamalrukh in a lengthy post shared how being a Parsi she was made an outcast in Wajid’s family when she refused to convert to Islam.

Now coming out in support of Kamalrukh is none other than actress Kangana Ranaut. The ‘Panga’ actress took to her Twitter handle and reaching out to Prime Minister Modi asked how is the country protecting minorities like Parsis.

Kamalrukh Khan in her post had said that she is opened up about her ordeal as currently, discussion surrounding ‘Anti-conversion’ law are rife. Now reacting Kamalrukh’s ordeal, Kangana took to her Twitter handle and wrote, “Parsis are the genuine minority in this nation, they did not come as invaders they came as seekers and gently requested for mother India’s love. Their small population have hugely contributed to the beauty- growth and economy of this nation.”

Kangana went on to add, “She is my friends widow a Parsi woman who is being harassed by her family for conversion. I want to ask @PMOIndia minority that don’t do sympathy seeking drama, beheadings, riots and conversions, how are we protecting them? Parsis shockingly decreasing numbers.”

The ‘Queen‘ actress ended her post by writing, Reveals India’s own character as a mother, child who does most drama unfairly gets most attention and advantages. And the one who is worthy, sensitive most caring and deserving ends up being a nanny to the one who keeps throwing fits…. we need to introspect #anticonversionbill.”

A part from Kamalrukh’s post reads, “My simple Parsi upbringing was very democratic in its value system. Independence of thought was encouraged and healthy debates were the norm. Education on all levels was encouraged. However, post marriage, this same independence, education and democratic value system was the biggest problem for my husband’s family. An educated, thinking, independent woman with an opinion was just not acceptable. And resisting the pressures of conversion was sacrilege. I have always respected, participated and celebrated all faiths. But my resistance to convert to Islam drastically widened the divide between me and my husband, making it toxic enough to destroy our relationship as husband and wife, and his ability to be a present father to our kids. My dignity and self-respect did not permit me to bend backwards for him and his family, by converting to Islam.”
