IS 'MUSLIM MADONNA' ACTUALLY A HINDU?

Muslim pop star DEEYAH has come under fire from the leading Islamic council in Britain, which believes the singer is Hindu.

Deepika Thathaal nick named as Muslim MadonnaThe Norwegian-born star, nicknamed ‘Muslim MADONNA’, hit the headlines this week (21FEB06) when she announced she had received death threats after her latest video featured her stripping off a burka (burqa) to reveal a skimpy bikini.

However, The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) suspects Deeyah is lying about her religion and is actually a Hindu.

An MCB spokesman says, "Her real name is DEEPIKA THATHAAL. That’s certainly not a Muslim name: it is identifiably Hindu. Our suspicion is that this is all a big publicity stunt."
