Mamta Kulkarni weds jailed lover who converted to Islam

May 13:

Mamta Kulkarni, who walked the fine line between sleazy and sexy in the 90s, had disappeared from the city more than a decade ago. It is said that the actress, who shot to notoriety with a topless cover shot for a film magazine, embraced a life of anonymity after her fortunes dipped and she found love with international drug kingpin Vicky Goswami. In 1997 Vicky was arrested for trafficking 11.5 tonnes of mandrax valued at $ 6 million and incarcerated in Dubai.

TOI has learnt that Vicky, now 52 years old, was released from the Dubai prison on November 15, 2012, after his life sentence was reduced on account of his model conduct. While in prison he had converted to Islam, and married Mamta, who had been managing his real estate business that includes a prominent hotel in Dubai, in his absence. Sources close to the couple say, Vicky is now in Nairobi, with his faithful wife by his side.

Vicky's hush-hush release from prison has been reported in several news channels in South Africa, from where he managed his network. "A life sentence in Dubai is in effect 25 years, but prisoners can apply for early release on various grounds. Apart from good conduct, these include learning to recite passages from the Qu'ran or converting to Islam. To strengthen his clemency appeal, Goswami converted to Islam and was married according to Islamic rites while incarcerated," says the article that appeared in the Mail & Guardian, which has been following the sensational case.

Though the opposition lawyers strongly opposed his clemency saying that he was an international criminal, the court pardoned him on grounds that he was a reformed criminal and a devout Muslim. The court also ordered that he be deported to his native country in India. Sources claim Vicky arrived in India during December 2012 and left for Kenya soon after. Since he did not have any specific criminal cases pending against him in India, it was easier for him to fly to Kenya.

Rashid Saeed, one of the most well-known event organisers in Dubai, said: "It was extremely difficult to get in touch with Mamta. She was very reticent and turned down all offers to perform at our shows. Late last year, we were told by common friends that she was married and she would never perform on stage again."

Even though Mamta had disappeared, she kept in touch with her sisters, one of whom stays in Mumbai and has been appointed caretaker of her house in Mumbai. TOI had reported how despite being away from the city, she had ensured that the maintenance and taxes reached the society on time.

Mamata Kulkarni Religion Convert

alhamdullah.May allah bless you.


There was no reason for most current Indian Muslims ancestors to convert to Islam except to escape from poverty and discrimination. Otherwise, they would have remained Hindus

Reply to contempt

Third world lords are sworn parrots!!!
People get converted by good conduct, welcome gestures, social status, getting pissed off by their current situation, fashion.
This third world retarded rotten mentality is killing others.

just shut up

just shut up

did she convert

Did mamta become muslim as well.


He is luck that he will spend rest of his life in Mamta ki Chaon main even after his childhood

Hope he remains a muslim

I hope he remains a Muslim even after his release. There are countless examples in Saudi where Philippine workers convert to Islam to gain benefits. Most of them do not practice nor pray. When they leave Kingdom they revert to their old faith. Whatever we call this but one thing it makes clear to people who say Islam was spread with sword or greed/coercion. No Muslim will do it for the sake of money - al-hamdu lillah. Of course changing name was a practice in olden days and that was also not in noble profession like actin in films. Bhands can do any thing.

Finally we can only pray that Mamata also embraces Islam and keep her husband also within the boundaries of faith. Otherwise we do have Muslim drug peddlers and actors & actresses. It all boils down to one thing: following some faith is not important, actions are, which should be beneficial for the humanity.

You are right Islam is a

You are right
Islam is a code of life that can render a man superior to angels.
Muslim without practice is not a muslim either
Taqwa is the most important foudation to stay as muslim
A muslim cannot lie, nor break promise, nor savor any deposit kept with him. One who does is is munafik which is worse than karir

hope the couple remains good muslims

you are right brother

Our dear shaji and Q33:56

Our dear shaji and Q33:56 allah and his angels pray to Muhammad.
>1. Islam says making partners to God (shirk) is the biggest sin.

Really? then let me see in surat al-ahzab aya 56 it says
inna allaha wa malli'katuh yusaalona 3ala al-nabi
do you know what this means? It means, and I will be nice here and translate it for you and here is tarjamat al-kilma/lafz

1. inna (an intensifying particle introducing a nominal clause and cab be read as truly) means truly

2. allah means allah

3. wa mala'katuh means and his angels

4. yusalunna means they pray (and here is my reference from Lisan al-3arab dictionary and you will find it in al-juz' al-khamis wa al-safha 368 and oh you can take this to one of your Arab masters to tell you what the Arabic means) and in Lisan al-3arab the word sala means al-du3a' wa al-ruku3 wa al-sujud which means that Allah and his angels pray to Muhammad

Oh and you need to stick to urdu our dear Shaji al-tablighee

5. 3ala means upon or to

6. al-nabi means the prophet

And here is trajamat al-ma3na

Truly Allah and his angels pray upon/to Muhammad

Now you have the reference and you either put up or shut up and let me repeat it one more time

Truly Allah and his angels pray upon/to Muhammad

Your Allah as well as his angels are praying and the subject of their praying is al-nabi aka Muhammad! So what is this our dear shaji al-tablighee? Let me help you: this is polytheism right? and why would Allah pray and how does he do it? and who takes care of the universe the he is praying?

And remember that when you utter the childlish sali 3ala al-nabi you are really praying to Muhammad so is Muhammad a God too our dear shaji? well it seems that your Allah prays to him

>Qur'an 33:56 says – "Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him, and salute him with all respect".

ROTFL the words (they) send means yab3athu so do you find the word yab3athu in the aya? and the word blessings means al-barakat so do you find the word al-barakat in the aya mr ignorant? see what happens when you debate an issue in a book that you cannot read in its primary language?

oh i forgot: ya ayuha al-ladhina aamanu salu 3alayhi blah blah blah

Or: O you who believe (read this in present tense due to grammatical aspect) PRAY upon/to him

Oh the wa salimu tasliman? it means and provide greetings with (a worthy) greetings

And it is all in black and white this is paganism and shirk our dear shaji al-tablighee right?

>Pathetic with your transliteration, "inna allaha wa malli'katuh yusaalona 3ala al-nabi".

So why do you use my transliteration mr ignorant? Oh you can take it to one of your Arab masters and he will tell you that it is correct

>Now tell me which authentic translation gives you the meaning "praying"…..??.

Hello: it is from Lisan al-3arab mr ignorant and shame on you.

Now you either put up or shut up

>Again read - Qur'aan says the reason in 4:48 – "ALLAH forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him; but He forgiveth anything else, to whom He pleaseth; to set up partners with ALLAH is to devise a sin Most heinous indeed".

You think and I'm being sarcastic here that this is a case of al-nasikh wa al-mansukh aka Allah changing his mind thing? But it is too late

>More you want…..??.

What more? that Allah prays to Muhammad? what more can we ask for?

>Read Qur'an 40:60 – "And your Lord says: "Call on Me; I will answer your (Prayer): but those who are too arrogant to serve Me will surely find themselves in Hell - in humiliation!"

What does this have to do with the fact that Allah prays to muhammad? Oh I forgot and his angels and what a fadiha or scandal

>It seems not sufficient for you. Take one more. Qur'an 39:65 – 'But it has already been revealed to thee,- as it was to those before thee,- "If thou wert to join (gods with Allah., truly fruitless will be thy work (in life), and thou wilt surely be in the ranks of those who lose (all spiritual good)".

And what does this have to do with the fact that Allah and his angels pray to Muhammad?

>No Muslim is praying to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

may be you do not but it seems that your Allah does so I have the following questions for you:

1. when Allah prays to Muhammad does his do the childish wudu'?

2. And what does allah say when he is praying to Muhammad?

3. And does his pray in the direction of a qibla too?

4. And who takes care of the universe when Allah is praying to Muhammad?

>This is what all Muslims understood from Qur'an and Prophet's teachings. Why you create such misconceptions in the mind of readers….??.

These are not misconceptions they are in the Qur'an a book that you cannot read in Arabic

>It looks like you have some personal prejudice towards Qur'an and Muslims.

Not Muslims. You are a victim of islam and I'm here to help you to realize that islam is no more than Arabian imperialism

Oh the Qur'an? it is poor literature that is no match to the Gita or the Dhammapada or Firdawsi's Shahnemah or Virgil's Aeneid or Homer's Iliad and Odyssey or even the Bible. The Qur'an is full of foreign words and grammatical errors and poor spelling of Arabic words and the Qur'an does not make any sense without tafseer/ta'weel but it still claims to be a kitab mubeen maktub bi 3arabi faseeh

Stop being a victim and be free again

Oh there is more in ayat al-jizya it says that

qaatiluu al-ladhina la yu'minuna bi lahi blah...blah...blah...wa la yuharimuna maharma allah wa rasuluh

Well I'm sure you agree with me that Allah says that he is the God of the nasarra wa al-yahood. Right? And they believe that he is their God. Right? But neither al-yahood aw al-nassara believe that Muhammad was a prophet.. Right? Do you know what the above means? It means that Muhammad is as important as your Allah and do you know what this means? It means SHIRK

How come you did not know that?

You don't Arabic neither

You don't Arabic neither Quran ...... So U better keep Dumb knowledge with your own self.... U DUMBO!!!!

Learn Arabic first

Your comments clearly shows that you don't know a single word of Arabic and have copy pasted from some web site. Alaa على means Upon & Ilaa الى means To. The word used in Quran is Alaa not Ilaa.

clear your confused man

This guy is really dumb. He is confusing blessing with praying.

33:56)Allah and His angels bless the Prophet. Believers, invoke blessings and peace on him. http://www.islamicstudies.info/tafheem.php?sura=33&verse=53&to=58

as per www.translate.google.com يصلون على النبي means Blessings on the prophet.

Wrong translation

Dear friend - you did try very much to twist and turn the meaning of this verse to create confusion. Yusaloon also mean sending blessing. The verse says Allah and angels send their blessing to the prophet. A simple use of a good arabic dictionary or at least seeking help of www.translate.google.com would have solved your dilemma.
