'She may have embraced Islam'

Gupta, who was posted at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad was perhaps a Shi’ite Muslim, according to a media report. “She was really inspired by the teachings of Islam but was scared to announce her new faith,” reads a report in the Post. “Her kin has very close relations with a well-known Muslim family of Ashiq Hussain Jafri in Lucknow…. Gupta spent her early life in Lucknow with Jafri’s family where she enthused (sic) Islamic values,” the Post quoted a source as saying. Gupta was spotted in the month of Ramzan by a local journalist wearing a bangle and rings which usually members of the Shi’ite sect wear.
