Miss World Bangladesh 2017: Jannatul to give back the crown

A- A A+

The Miss World Bangladesh 2017 Jannatul Nayeem has said she will give back her beauty crown if she is excluded in the Miss World Bangladesh.

Jannatul Nayeem came up with the comment while responding queries attending a video call of a private TV channel in the capital in this regard after the beauty contest.

“I will not feel regret in it,’ she adds.

She also said: “I will work for the children and for the ill-fated girls in the country in rest of my life.”

Earlier the Miss World Bangladesh 2017 Jannatul Nayeem has reportedly been stripped of her beauty title after the news on her marriage made waves in the Media.

According to a confidential source, the organizers have invited nine other finalists of the beauty contest to the prize distribution programme scheduled to be held at the Grand Ballroom of The Westin Dhaka on Wednesday.

The result of the contest will be re-announced during the ceremony in presence of all the judges, wishing anonymity, an official of Antar Showbiz told the Daily Kalerkantho.

He said the new Miss World Bangladesh 2017 will be selected from the nine finalists as the news on Jannatul's marriage found to be true.

"Moreover, she [Jannatul] went live on her official Facebook page on Tuesday afternoon and admitted of her marriage and divorce," he added.

Earlier in the day, Jannatul, who took part in the beauty contest hiding her marital status, went live on Facebook and said her father forced her to get married.

With tears in her eyes, she said: "A father forced a 16-year-old girl to marry a man, but the girl didn't accept it. She escaped from it as she wanted to go ahead surmounting all the odds of the society.

“I am a divorcee, fine, I am a girl. As a human, I have rights to represent myself on an international platform. I wanted nothing for myself. I just wanted to set an example before the girls of your country that what a woman can do if she wants.”

On Friday night, Jannatul Nayeem was selected as Miss World Bangladesh 2017. But, the news drew controversy the next day after it was revealed that Jannatul Nayeem was not the judges' choice.

Rather, the judges selected runner-up Jessia Islam to represent Bangladesh at the Miss World contest to be held in November this year in Sanya, China.

On Monday, Jannatul Nayeem again made headlines after news on her marriage surfaced in Media.

According to a number of reports, the newly crowned Miss World Bangladesh got married to a businessman in Chittagong some four years ago. However, the couple separated some two and a half months after they tied the knot.

The organizers called a press conference over the issue at Hotel Pan Pacific Sonargaon on Tuesday evening. However, it was called off later.
