She said she had always received love from the people of
India and was confident of winning the hearts of Bangaloreans
before returning to Pakistan. "My message for Bangalore is
love and peace," she said.

ex-communicated her for "objectionable" photos on the net and
for degrading the sacred institution of 'nikah' by signing a
contract to choose a groom on a reality show.
