Kolkata, July 5 (IBNS): Newly elected Lok Sabha MP Nusrat Jahan, who married long-time boyfriend Nikhil Jain recently, threw a grand wedding reception at a hotel in Kolkata on Thursday.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee attended the reception to bless the couple.

Prominent personalities from the world of politics, movies and business attended the event.

TMC MP Nusrat, who has worked in numerous popular Bengali movies in her acting career, married longtime boyfriend Nikhil Jain in an intimate ceremony in Turkey last month.

Nusrat's Tollywood colleague and fellow Parliamentarian Mimi Chakraborty also attended the reception.

Se described Nusrat's marriage as a 'fairytale'.

Fatwa controversy in brief

Deoband clerics had issued a fatwa against Nusrat, who married Hindu businessman Nikhil Jain, stating that a Muslim woman should only marry a man belonging to the community.

Cleric Mufti Asad Wasmi  was quoted as saying by Times Now, “After investigation, we got to know that she married into the Jain religion, Islam says that a Muslim can only marry a Muslim. Second, I want to say that Nusrat Jahan is an actor and these actors do not care about religion. They do what they feel like doing. This is what she showcased in Parliament.”

“She came to Parliament with sindoor and mangalsutra, so it is a waste of time to talk about this. We cannot interfere in her life. I just told her what Shariat says with the help of media,” Wasmi added.

Nusrat replies strongly

Responding to the fatwa, Nusrat said she represents "an inclusive India".

Issuing a statement on Twitter, Nusrat said: "I represent an inclusive India.. which is beyond the barriers of caste creed and religion.. as much as i respect all religions.. i still remain a muslim.. and non should comment on what i choose to wear.. faith is beyond attire.. and is more about believing and practicing the invaluable doctrines of all religions..."
