I love kate and rana but rana being Muslim makes this storyline completely unrealistic. The actress is hindu, they should have went with that originally. Elephant in the room within British society =52%of British Muslims believe homosexuality should be ILLEGAL. 23 %want shariah law (death to gays). Gay British Muslims can't even support this in public/online.
oh boy im gonna stop you right there. muslim lgbtq people exist, there is nothing unrealistic about that
now from what i can tell ur referencing a study from 2015, published in 2016. that study “interviewed a random sample of 1,081 adults”. 1,081 accounts for about 0.0004% of the 2-3 million muslims in the UK. somehow i dont think thats a credible representation of the entire british muslim population. and even if it was, it literally has no relevance to rana’s storyline so you bringing it up just makes you look like a prick since it was never a fucking elephant in the room
i understand that bhavna is hindu and not muslim but that doesnt discount that this storyline is important for a lot of british muslim lgbtq people. and whether they publicly support it or not is irrelevant. if they can watch rana and feel a connection to her character thats all that matters
personally, as someone with muslim family and friends, im offended that you feel the need to paint all muslims with the same brush in some underhanded attempt to vilify the religion and its people. fuck off
