Veena Malik, who was criticised for her Ramzan show Astaghfar on Hero TV, has hit back at her critics while insisting that entertainers have the right to talk about their religion.
The actress also rejected the perception that entertainment and religion should be kept
The Pakistani actor, model and reality TV star's nude FHM spread has created an outrage in her home country. While she has sued the magazine over the issue, the mag in turn has sent her a legal notice. This is one controversy Veena Malik is finding hard to 'cover'! Here're other soups she's been in before.
On being told that entertainers talking about religion were similar to a maulvi wanting to be a hero in the entertainment industry, she lashed out at the maulvis, saying that they did portray themselves as some sort of heroes on television, wearing gaudy clothes and makeup, for entertaining viewers, Express Tribune reported.
Malik added that religion is a very beautiful thing and everyone, no matter anywhere in the world, had the right to learn about their religion.
