Social media is filled with stories where people from different religious disciplines fall in love. While the pressure of the society is loaded on their shoulders, the social media warriors, in their opinion, share how the lovers will be showered by the wrath of Almighty. While we can continue debating over what we feel is right or wrong, we fail to see all the better things that come out of such acts.
Norendro Mondol, now known as Abdur Rahman, fell in love with a Muslim girl, Nahar. The love rooted in the early days of life – the childhood days, the young and carefree moments, had them in a deep affection for each other. Little did they know that the struggle will be so hard that it will cost them a life.
Shared on Facebook page GMB Akash, Abdur Rahman told the tragic love story no one wishes to picture themselves in. Before we jump to make any harsh comments, keep the following plea made by the page in mind:
Here’s How The Love Story Ended Before It Even Started:
“Fifteen years every single day we suffered for religion. Whenever I wake up in the morning I wanted to know if she was alive or not. My family wanted to kill Nahar. And her family wanted to kill me. Everyone wanted to separate us. But all her prayers were to keep our love alive. I was a Hindu. And she was a Muslim. From childhood, we were in love. When we grow up everyone around us hated our relationship. They tortured us to end our love. They harassed us everyday. Nahar and I cried more than we breathe. She only told me that she was praying to Allah so that one day everyone accept our love. Not a single day of her life she missed her prayer. Whenever I asked her what she actually prayed to Allah, she always said she prayed for the acceptance of our love.
I left my village four months ago. I am moving from places to places. No one let me to see Nahar’s dead body. They did not allow me to see her once. They were happy because they thought we did not get each other. But they do not know I am continually seeing her; they have no idea that Nahar is living with me since her death. That night I was sitting under a bridge, was talking to Nahar, and then I noticed Nahar was very unhappy. I asked her what had happened. She told me that she was feeling very sad because she could not pray for our love anymore. I saw intense pain in her face, in her eyes. Next morning, I converted to Islam and become Muslim.
Since then I never missed any prayer. I do not know if Allah will accept my appeal or not. But I am praying for our love like Nahar did her whole life.” – Norendro Mondol (Abdur Rahman).
***This is Norendro and Nahar’s life experience. This post is not published to hurt any religious views or opinion. Nahar prayed for her whole life to Allah so he accepts the love of two people who have religious differences. They could easily convert to Islam or Hinduism and live in this society. Please see their sacrifices. Kindly do not pass any harsh comments to them or attack each other in the comment section about religion, it’s a request***
It is indeed tragic what happened. We will all be too quick to talk about what happened, we will voice our verdict in every possible way. But we can’t even imagine what Abdur Rahman and Nahar went through!
