FOR his love for a Muslim girl, he took no time to leave his mother religion i.e Hinduism. Five years ago, Prashanth Shetty married his lover Mushra. He got converted to Islam, appeared in a new name and new Muslim style. After five years, he realised the situation and decided to return to Hinduism along with his wife and kids. In a simple home coming ceremony organised at Saralebettu Shivapadi Sri Umamaheshwari Temple near Manipal under Udupi district of Karnataka, the family of Prashanth Shetty voluntarily returned to Hinduism. The family signed a letter stating the acceptance of Hinduism at the temple. Mushra, now called Prathibha Shetty, elder son Naveen Shetty (Mohammed Iqbal), second son Umesh Shetty (Mohammed Irshan), daughter Prathima Shetty (Fathima Yasmin), and younger son Suresh (Mohammed Jalaluddeen) have now returned to Hinduism. “I am happy to be a Hindu; my husband never forced me to live with any restrictions. Where my husband goes I will follow him,” says Prathibha Shetty. During the home coming ceremony, Zilla Sanghachalak of RSS Shri Shamhu Shetty, the VHP district general secretary Shri Muttar Ganesh Kini were also present.
