The Muslim fundamentalists opposed this deed by claiming that it was immoral and against their religious beliefs. One of the users even claimed that the end times are near and people are lucky that there was no Tsunami in Mallappuram.
This isn’t the only time fundamentalists have been irked by Muslims who as per them have been indulging in non-Islamic things.
We had reported how Islamists had declared Mohammed Shami a bad Muslim for celebrating his daughter’s birthday. Mohammed Kaif was trolled for doing Surya Namaskar and Irfan Pathan was told by fundamentalists that Raksha Bandhan is against Islam.
Such a targeted harassment has also extended to the personalities belonging to West Bengal’s entertainment industry.
A famous Bengali radio and TV presenter named Mir Afsar Ali was abused for equating his father with Allah. Recently, famous Bengali actress Nusrat Jahan was also insulted on Facebook for celebrating Durga Puja.
