Islam is the religion of peace.
Islam is not a religion of war, and we should be fighting for peace,” she explained.”
My faith has made me a better person.
“Award-winning actress and singer Aasim Qureshi, who has also worked as an actor and singer, shared her thoughts on her Muslim identity.”
People will be surprised to learn that I’m a Sikh.
When I’m on stage, I make sure to be very careful to not speak too much.

And I feel like I have a spiritual life.
I believe that my spirit is very strong.
It’s a very strong spirit, so when I’m in a good mood, I think it’s the best.
