Netizens are slamming her for disrespecting Islam. One social media user said, “Strict action should be taken against her by the Islamic board in india and by the Saudi government as she has violated the sacred place Makkah as she’s clearly saying that she has not accepted the Muslim faith. How did she enter Masjid Al-Haram? How can we stay quiet at her actions? I want her to get punished for the mockery she’s making of Islam.”

Another wrote, “This is so disgusting, this is so ridiculous.. Astaghfirullah! How can these type of people played with religions and their purity just a some shitty attention.. Like seriously! How can even Saudi government allow such people to enter in that sacred place Makkah Shareef?”

“@saudinews50 kindly look into this a non-Muslim can’t perform umrah… she accept she’s not Muslim,” a third user wrote.
