“I am not a Muslim. I am a Catholic. I was born a Catholic and I still am.
“But I respect my husband’s religion therefore kasama niyo ako sa pag gugunita ng Eid Al Fitr kaya bumati kami ng anak ko ng Eid Mubarak sa lahat ng mga kapatid namin sa Islam (kasama ka doon).
“Nasa loob kami ng mosque. ‘Diba ‘yan ang tamang kasuotan sa loob ng mosque? ‘Diba dapat naka hijab sa loob ng mosque?” Mariel commented, as reported by ABS-CBN News.
