Convert to Islam for the heck of it!
I am a Muslim girl in exact same situation (a Hindu bf) as yours.
Its no child’s play. I always thought I could get married in both the styles Muslim as well as Hindu. I don’t believe in idol worship but I respect his faith. He himself is not very religious. One sad thing that comes along specially if you are not from city like Mumbai is that constant disgrace and comments in public. I am so scared of all this. I can’t hurt my parents but I want my love. I have always been their fav kid and now I have a Hindu bf this will blow their minds off.
Why can’t life be just easy like Genilia and Ritesh , SRK and Gouri.
@Shinivas: Please do not convert this thread into a HINDUISM V/s ISLAM war. Religion was made at those times to unite ppl, make them civilised but today we are divided and united only by being uncivilized. – Ara.
Are you indirectly indicating that Vicky should convert to Islam, just for the heck of it? There is no legal hassle when a couple marries by a court, then why convert if he has no intention of being a true Muslim? Are you telling that Shahadah is a hollow ritual devoid of meaning? Are you teaching Hindu lovers to go and lie to Allah, to Islamic religious leaders, to religious institutions and to all their new Muslim relatives? What a shame! Why make lies and deception a foundation of a married life?
Ara, if you forgot, Shahadah is the declaration that “there is no god but Allah (…meaning Lord Rama and Goddess Laxmi are nothing but idols?) and Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah (…meaning only Muhammad’s messages are true while Lord Krishna messages are fake?). Associating partners with Allah is called Shirk (…meaning praying to Lord Rama and Goddess Laxmi is sin?). Shirk is not only the worship of idols (…is Kaaba not an idol?), but also offering prayers or supplications to anyone (…so no more eating prasad offerings at Hindu temples?), living or dead, believing that they hold the same attribute as Him (…should Christians stop praying to Jesus as His Son and convert to Islam?). The Koran considers Shirk as an unpardonable sin.
Instead of teaching to lie, why not ask Vicky to be truthful and honest. Tell him not to take Shahadah oaths just for marriage, unless changing his birth religion is his main objective. Why mix love and the business of religious conversion? If he has interest in Islam, ask him to go to a madrasa and spend 6 months there; not with a girl friend! Why waste lovely premarital dating time preaching about religion? Asking to take Shahadah “for the heck of it” is nothing but a love-trap (and a sin).
It you ultimately convert your Hindu boy friend to Islam; you are nothing but a love-proselytizer. For the heck of it, why don’t you convert to Hinduism (read Ayesha)? Do you feel Hinduism (and Christianity and the rest) is an inferior religion while Islam is the only true religion? Do you consider dating a Hindu is, in your word, “disgrace,” but converting him to Islam is an honor? If pleasing your community is so vital to you, why are you dating a Hindu to begin with?
You gave a big lecture to Srinivas of “civilization and unity,” and the same time indicating Vicky to convert to Islam, for the heck of it? What an “uncivilized” thought! Don’t preach that you cannot put in practice.
If you want an “easy” life, just do like that of Shah Rukh Khan…marry in a court and later perform pooja to Hindu Gods to show respect to your spouse. Show that you have guts to do right things.
Please make up your mind. Instead of proselytizing, tell your Hindu bf that you will never ask him to BBS and prove your true love.

…i do agree with Admin on Ara… She is hypocrite, who dates a hindu boys and then tells him to convert for the heck of it. She is not only betraying her family, God, Faith but herself as well.
Readers, what is your thought on religious conversion just to please your lover? Is religious conversion an “on” and “off” switch? Why these Muslim young adults have so much desire to convert others?
