Raeesa on her Hindu-Muslim Identity

30m | Aug 25, 2020

In part 2 of our interfaith series, Raeesa tells us what life was like growing up in her dual-faith household: her father identifies as a Maharashtran Hindu and her mother identifies as Ismaili. Raeesa and her brother were raised within both faiths, practicing each one and attending its festivals and rituals with regularity. Raeesa shares how this upbringing has shaped her views on organized religion, what part of each faith she has personally connected to and had challenges with, and how she hopes to engage with these faiths with her own future family. Now, Raeesa identifies as Hindu-Muslim, still actively partaking and finding meaning in both religions.
