Dina takes off hijab yearning to return to belly-dancing
Egyptian belly-dancer Dina returned to the world of entertainment after the chaos she caused, starting with her involvement in a pornography scandal and ending with wearing the hijab (Islamic headdress). Dina had apparantely realized that she could not stay away from her career as a belly-dancer for too long and it was proven the in fact no force could keep her away.
According to the London based daily, Al Hayat, despite the fact that Dina had completed the fifth pillar of Islam (Hajj) and wore the Hijab, it appeared that all that was done just to cover-up for her involvement in the porn scandal with her ex-husband Hussam Abu Al Fotooh. The dancer had also announced earlier that she would begin a career in business administration but she realized that it would not be a success since her real talents lay in dancing alone.
Dina did not reveal where her first dancing performance, after her false resignation, would be, but she is hopeful to hold it sometime in the very near future.
Before taking off the Hijab, which people knew would not last long, Dina had revealed that she has completely put her previous belly-dancing and acting careers behind and has ventured into the world of commerce. She opened a private office in the Mohandiseen neighborhood of the Egyptian capital city - Cairo. Dina had decided to cut-off all contacts with the entertainment world, and as such, decided to change her phone numbers, making her knew ones only known to a very small circle of friends.
but her plans as a businesswoman did not last for too long as it seems she realized it would not be as rewarding as dancing. The dancer had also attended religion classes held at the homes of former actresses, singers, dancers etc. who had also ended their careers and instead, sought complete dedication to God and the religion of Islam; and was planning to someday hold religion classes at her home.
Dina had returned from Saudi Arabia after performing the Muslim pilgrimage Hajj wearing a Hijab (Headscarf) and announcing an end to her dancing and acting career. The former dancer had also refused to make any comments to the public isolating herself at her home in Muhandiseen-Egypt with her son Ali, who is from her late husband director Sameh Albajouri.
Dina had announced before her pilgrimage that she was thinking of putting an end to her career after the recent pornographic scandal she was involved in and finally made the decision while she was in the Mecca. She found that Hajj would be her only option to runaway from all the controversial and scandalous issues she is currently involved in.
Many critics had reiterated that dancers like Dina have had the chance to go to Hajj but as soon as they returned they did not refrain from their profession and continued dancing making their pilgrimage go to total loss.
Late last year rumors started surfacing about Dina's involvement in pornographic films, when a number of videotapes were found in ex-husband’s apartment containing obscene and provocative scenes of her. Dina had filed a lawsuit against Hussam for violating her rights while she was married to him and making pornography films of her without her knowledge. Dina had intended to take Hussam to court for the fact that it is against the law for a man to film his wife in such indecent circumstance. – Albawaba.com
