Chand Mohammad Is Chander Mohan Again
Chand Mohammad Alias Chander Mohan
The much talked about Chand-Fiza love saga took a fresh twist on Tuesday with the former Haryana deputy chief minister returning to both Hinduism and his original name of Chander Mohan. This has now raised a question mark over the status of his second wife, Anuradha Bali, who had changed her name to Fiza before their marriage.
Chander Mohan visited a temple in the Haryana's Hisar town, some 275 km from here, and returned to Hinduism in the presence of religious leaders.
"I apologized before my community and I have realized that marrying Fiza was the biggest mistake of his life," Chander Mohan said after re-adopting the Hindu religion. Chander Mohan Monday expressed his desire to return to the Hindu religion, saying he loved his mother very much and wanted to stay with her.
Son of former Haryana chief minister Bhajan Lal, Chander Mohan had lost the deputy chief minister's post after marrying Fiza.
The duo married secretly in Nov 2008 after converting to Islam. At that time, Chand was married to Seema Bishnoi and they have three children.
Chand and Fiza had surfaced after their marriage in Uttar Pradesh's Meerut city in Dec 2008. After staying together for nearly 40 days, Chand suddenly left her house and was later traced in London.
Adding drama to the controversial marriage, he then "divorced" her over the phone and through SMS in Feb 2009. But in June, he apologised to her and again started living with her in her house in Mohali town, adjoining Chandigarh.
Chand met with an accident July 8, fracturing his hip joint. At that time, Fiza was in Malaysia to take part in a reality show.
