Nancy takes an interest in Tamwar’s religion

Nancy Carter tries to get a better understanding of her boyfriend’s religion, next week on EastEnders.

We saw Aunt Fatima dress Nancy in traditional garb for Shabnam and Kush’s wedding ceremony in last weeks episodes, and Nancy fans loved her awkward outburst of “Yes, yes Kush!” when he declared that he wanted to marry Shabnam during the ceremony.

Spurred on my Elaine’s comments regarding Muslim weddings, Nancy is left feeling a bit uncomfortable and curious about the differences regarding her and Tamwar’s background.

In an effort to understand his religion Nancy begins to read the Qu’ran.
