Supreme Court declared Triple Talaq illegal finally. Justice for many Muslim women prevailed. People have their own thoughts – positive or negative about the verdict. In such case let us meet you a Muslim woman from Mumbai who is a pole dancer. Her name is Aarifa Bhinderwala. Her journey to chase her dreams was never too easy in a country of us which is very conservative.
Pole dancing is her passion and it has helped her get her strength back in life and that’s all that matters to her. Aarifa is a professional pole dancer and she shared her story on a popular YouTube channel and believe us it is very inspirational. “Feelings can’t be a taboo. Then why is sexuality?” She questions.
There are so many instances in life that remind you that the society will always expect, sometimes even force by either moral policing or discrimination, you to conform to conventions. She also suffered this and battled depression. Her mother Nafisa Bhinderwala stood by her and helped to achieve her dream. Aarifa hails from Bohra community of Muslims, though she belongs to modern to a modern world today, but her elder sister wears a Hijab even now.
She has embraced her sexuality and everything that makes her the person she is and that’s been one of the best decisions of her life. She defied all the odds and listened to her heart and today she has her own Institute that makes people learn the art of pole dance.
You go girl! More power to you!
