Safa apologises after ‘atheist’ comments

Actress-model Safa Kabir has been forced to apologise after remarks construed as admitting atheism in a country where people have been murdered for renouncing religion.

Safa Kabir, who has appeared in top Bangladeshi television dramas, told a private radio station this week she did not believe in the afterlife.

“I don’t believe in life after death. Actually, I never believe in what I can’t see,” she said, in comments that some took as a rejection of Muslim beliefs in heaven and hell.

The remarks caused a storm on social media, with footage of the interview going viral, and Kabir faced a torrent of criticism in the conservative Muslim country.

On Tuesday, the 24-year-old then posted an apology on Facebook, denying she is an atheist.

“If I committed any mistake, I seek forgiveness from the most merciful. He is the most merciful and forgiving. He will definitely forgive me,” she wrote.

“If my words hurt any one’s belief, I am sorry for this and I ask for forgiveness,” she added in a post that quickly accumulated over 60,000 comments.
