Egyptian actor Hannan Turk has denied rumors that she intends to stop wearing a Hijab, an Islamic headdress, which she recently resumed wearing.
She expressed her anger over the rumors, describing them as ‘lies.”
Hannan said that throughout her life she has learned the most important thing is her devotion to religion and to God, and since she made the decision to wear a Hijab she has been repeatedly attacked by rumors. People have even tried to persuade her to change her mind, added Hannan.
“My devotion to God and my beliefs give me the strength to continue in the path I have chosen,” said Hannan.
Other rumors claim that Hannan was forced to remove her Hijab in order to shoot the remaining scenes of her upcoming film. Hannan said she is not concerned with the rumors surrounding her Hijab, asserting that there is nothing that would make her remove it in public.
Despite the fact that many consider Hannan to be of strong character and to be a proponent of personal freedom, critics think her new appearance in a Hijab may be an effort to influence the movie making industry by coloring it with Islamic principals.
Wearing a Hijab has not protected Hannan from the tabloids. The latest rumor circulating about the star is that she is considering quitting her acting career and dedicating herself solely to worshiping God. Turk had announced that she will undoubtedly continue her acting career, asserting that she is committed to a number of different projects and presently under contract.
Hannan is preparing for the role of Wafa Idrees, a Palestinian martyr who conducted a suicide bombing in Israel, in a new film that tells her life story.
Hannan revealed that it has been her life long life dream to portray such a strong person who sacrificed her life for the love of her country. She plans to fully dedicate herself to the role.
