(Pakdestiny.com) Blasphemy accused and actor Veena Malik wants to be an Islamic scholar like Junaid Jamshad. Many wish her new plans do not turn out to be a mere ‘media attention seeking tricks’.
The other day Veena visited Jamia Binoria al Aalmia in Karachi and expressed her wish to receive education from the Islamic institute.
“I had started reading Islamic books given to me by Junaid Jamshed when I was expecting after which I decided that one day I will seek Islamic education from Binoria University,” she said while visiting the seminary at the Karachi’s SITE area along with her husband Asad Bashir Khattak.
“I also want my son to become Hafiz-e-Quran [the one who memorises the Holy Book],” she added.
The infamous actor and her husband met local as well as international students in the girls’ section of the institution.
Veena said: “This institute not only opened its doors to me but Mufti Naeem also gave me a status of daughter having guided me at every stage of my life. My life has changed because of my husband Asad as he is very religious himself.”
The Lollywood actor said it was due to the efforts made by Mulana Tariq Jameel and Junaid Jamshed that she embraced a change in her life. “They [Islamic scholars] helped me every time I became upset.”
During the visit, the couple, along with the head of the varsity, Mufti Muhammad Naeed also spoken to the reporters.
In January, Veena had returned to Pakistan, touching down in Lahore with her husband and two children. Pak Destiny
