KARACHI: Lollywood actor Veena Malik said on Saturday that she would like to join Jamia Binoria al Aalmia 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.

Speaking to the media after her visit, Veena appreciated the seminary’s scholars for welcoming both of them. “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, she said, changed upside down owing to 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.

Upon her return, Veena told the media about her plans to participate in human rights campaigns and other goodwill social activities.

Further, soon after the Bacha Khan University (BKU) in Charsadda district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) reopened after a deadly terrorist rampage, Veena had visited the campus too.

    She has realized that this is the only way to stay alive in Pakistan esp. after offending extremists and terrorists. Recommend

    Somebody needs to play that clip where she was abusing the same mufti on TV.
    Instead of building common sense and looking for evidence & science based answers to life, most Pakistanis are going back to the abyss of Arab tribalism.
    Irony is that the Saudis & Iranis are now slowly working to reverse their beliefs and make them up to the par with the modern world, and Pakistanis are adamant on taking a ride back to the old cantt road.Recommend

    It’s always about her. To get publicity, she’s deciding what her son should do as he grows up. Let him be what he wants to be and even if you decide to make him what you want, why tell everyone? It’s your own business.Recommend

    Even if she is doing so to seek limelight, it’s still a zillion times better than what she did few years back in India.

    There’s an old saying in Urdu.. It goes a little something like “nau sau choohay kha kay billi haj pay challi”.. We should appreciate our stars as they are rather than forcing them to be accepted by society only after they declare how religiously inclined they are. Recommend

    Only Allah knows her intention, we are no one to judge. It’s better to believe what she is saying as it is none of our business if it’s fake or real, it’s between Allah and her. Recommend
