“The truth is I go to church, I believe that the fact that I come from a Muslim family does not mean that I should also follow suit. It also does not mean that I cannot go to church. We are all serving the same God,” she noted.
When asked by Delay whether she believes in Jesus Christ, a joyous looking Mumin answered “Yes I have taken Christ as my Lord and personal savior and I believe I can only be saved through Him.”
As to when she made that decision, the actress replied “I changed from Muslim to Christianity ever since I started growing up. By birth, I am a Muslim but I chose to go to church.”
