In another video, Sabrimala explained her motivation for becoming a Muslim. In the viral video, she can be heard saying, “Now I love Islam more than myself.” After questioning herself why there is so much hatred toward Muslims in our nation, she started reading the Quran, curiously and without prior bias.
