Priyanka says, "With the swirling number of religions that we have, that live within the country as well. I grew up in a convent school. I was aware of Christianity. My dad used to sing in a mosque, I was aware of Islam. I grew up in a Hindu family, I was aware of that. Spirituality is such a large part of India that you really cannot ignore it." Twitterati is apalled that she would say something like that without the basic knowledge of Islam. Some also couldn't understand how dad's singing at mosques made her aware of a religion and its principles.
