I represent inclusive India : Nusrat Jahan

Nusrat Jahan won from West Bengal's Basirhat seat on a Trinamool Congress ticket by over 3.5 lakh votes.
Firsttime parliamentarian and Bengali actor Nusrat Jahan was criticised after she was seen sporting vermilion and bangles in Parliament. "I represent an inclusive India which is beyond the barriers of caste, creed and religion," Ms Jahan said in a statement that she shared on micro-blogging site Twitter. She also said she still remains a Muslim even as she "respects all religions". "I still remain a Muslim and none should comment on what I choose to wear. Faith is beyond attire and is more about believing and practicing the invaluable doctrines of all religions," she added.
