Kamalukh Khan took to his unofficial Instagram account and revealed that he was in courtship with the music composer for more than 10 years before tying the knot. She faces difficulties in inter-caste marriages.
His note read, “I am a Parsi and he was Muslim. We were what you would call “college sweethearts”. When we were finally married, we had a love marriage under the Special Marriages Act (an act that empowers one to practice one’s own religion post marriage). And that’s why this current debate around the anti-conversion bill is very interesting to me. I want to share my ordinance and my experience in an interracial marriage – that in this day and age, a woman can face such prejudice, suffering and discrimination which is a complete shame in the name of religion. .. and is an eye opener. “
“My ordinary Zoroastrian upbringing was very democratic in its value system. Freedom of thought was encouraged and healthy debates were the norm. Education was encouraged at all levels. However, after marriage, this freedom, 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 pressure of conversion was sacrosanct. I have always respected, participated and celebrated all religions. But my resistance to converting to Islam greatly widened the divide between me and my husband, making it quite toxic to destroy our relationship as our husband and wife, and a present for our children His ability to be a father. He said that my dignity and self-respect did not allow me to convert to Islam for him and his family.
He continued, “Personally, I believed that conversion was not a value system. It was also not an example of a deep-set rotten patriarchy that I grew up with in my beautifully developed children — my 16-year-old daughter Arshi and my 9 Year son wanted to set for Haren. I fought this horrible way of thinking about tooth and nail during my marriage. The result- being out of my husband’s family, afraid of strategizing to get me converted. I feel. I was devastated, felt betrayed and emotionally drained, but my children and I persevered. “
Speaking about Wajid Khan, Kamalukh said, “Wajid was a super talented musician and composer who devoted his life to making tunes. My children and I miss him very much and we want him to dedicate more time to us as a family, devoid of religious prejudices, the way he composed his tunes. We never got a family due to the religious bigotry of him and his family. Today, after his untimely death, his family persecution continues. “
Kamalukh Khan concludes his note, “All religions are the path to God. Live and let live be the only religion of all of us. “
