Dear Indian Muslim, have you seen Muslim brides of the world?
Did you pay attention to their white attire at the time of Nikah?

Why is your custom different? Why does an Indian Muslim bride wear red?

From where your unique custom of Haldi, Juta churayi etc is adopted by?
The ritual called Tattva or delivering fish for Gaye Hould where large Rohu fish, which is decked up as a bride, draped in a sari, and decorated with jewelry, paan and some turmeric gifted to the bridegroom's family among both Hindu and Muslim Bengali. ImageImage
Haldi/Manjha ceremony in Indian Muslim wedding- The bride wears yellow and is anointed with turmeric paste that is given by the groom’s family. After this, a married friend accompanies the bride everywhere until the wedding. Just like Haldi custom of Hindu marriages. Image

The Shaheen's who Shaheen Bagh is fighting against-

1.Meet Shaheen, a hard-working lady, who earns her livelihood as a maid.
Today she told me how shaheen Bagh protests are making her life hell. Image
2. She has to feed her three children, pay their tuition fee which is approximately 400 per month.

She does not have the luxury of attending the Shaheen Bagh protests but she wonders how they sit there and earn their daily expenses?
3. She has to pay 50 Rupees,instead of 20 rupees and spend a lot more time which she can otherwise utilise in more productive ways.

Every minute, every penny matters to her.
