Leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband has claimed that Saif Ali Khan's wedding with Kareena Kapoor is anti Islamic as Kareena Kapoor did not convert to Islam before the marriage.
The Islamic institution located in Deoband, a town in Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, told TOI, "Kareena did not convert to Islam before her marriage with Saif. Islam does not approve of such marriages."
"According to the Muslim laws, since Kapoor has not converted to Islam, this marriage is anti-Islam," said Habibur Rahman, a senior cleric of the seminary.
Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor got married on October 16. The couple got their marriage registered in Mumbai.
The five-day wedding celebrations of actors Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor culminated in a grand Mughal themed reception in Delhi yesterday with political and Bollywood bigwigs in attendance.
Saif Ali Khan's mother Sharmila said, "Bless the couple and join in our happiness."
