How is singing in a mosque makes one aware of Islam? Do many years in India didn't let you know about muslims around you? By this logic- my dad argues cases in court so I am aware of the law. #PriyankaChopra #Oprah 😂 pic.twitter.com/gDbVG5aZT1

People seem to have focused on just a sentence out of the whole story that Priyanka was trying to tell. Her full quote was, “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”.
She also conversed about her Spiritual Inclination during the interview. She said, “Spirituality is such a large part of India that you cannot ignore it but also my family believed in having higher power, having a sense of faith. My dad used to tell me that religion is a way to get to the Supreme power. Every religion has a different face to the same direction where we are going. I am a Hindu, I have a temple in my home and I pray as often as I can but at the same time, I am a believer of the fact that a higher power does exist and I like to have faith in that,”.
Hashtags like #chopraonoprah were also in the air after the interview.
