Rakhi Sawant is facing significant backlash from the public after her recent visit to Mecca, where she posted videos from the holy site and repeatedly mentioned Salman Khan’s name while urging him to perform Umrah.
In one viral video, Rakhi, clad in a burqa, continuously mentioned Salman Khan and even encouraged him to undertake Umrah. She can be heard saying, “Salman Bhai, please perform Umrah, I am standing outside the gates of paradise.”

In response to the video, one user commented, “She is just mocking both religions.” Another questioned whether she had gone there for Salman or to showcase her over-the-top acting skills. A third person suggested that a case should be filed against her for ridiculing various faiths.
Interestingly, Rakhi Sawant returned from her pilgrimage to Mecca on August 31, 2023, and received a warm welcome at Mumbai airport. As she exited the gate, she requested that the paparazzi address her as Fatima instead of Rakhi, as she had adopted this name following her marriage to Adil Durrani. She firmly stated, “Don’t call me Rakhi, call me Fatima.”
