She also mentioned that how Imran Khan, former captain of Pakistan introduced Islam to her. After reading books and scriptures on Islam and meeting other Muslims she found that the image created by media about Islam is completely different from what the real Islam is about. She also mentioned that when she went to Pakistan she was completely mesmerized by the hospitality and love that was given to her. She also urges the Muslim community (each individual to act as Ambassador of Islam) to change the wrong perception and image of Islam that has been created by the media by meeting people of different faith and passing good message of Islam.
