Love knows no religion, caste, customs & traditions and any boundaries. If one falls for another person, they do not see any other possibility – all they see is the lifetime of forever to be given to them together. However, unfortunately, religion is one of those mega things that has affected the love stories around the world.
In a heart shattering and a tearing post shared by story telling active GMB Akash from Bangladesh, this love story has an ending that you would never want to read. A reality that has turned this society into shackles, you would never want to face. How this society is bringing love into its knees.
Read this overwhelmingly sad story below:
“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.”
