Farah Khan and her kids attacked by Islamists for performing a puja

Islamist fundamentalists were not too happy with Farah Khan and her children performing puja on the new year

Film director Farah Khan must not have expected the backlash she got for just trying to spread positivity. Yesterday, Khan, who is married to filmmaker Shirish Kunder, posted a picture of her triplets, Diva, Anya and Czar performing a puja on the new year day. The photo was captioned “Never underestimate the power of Prayer! Happy New Year♥️#puja #gratitude #godhearsandanswersprayers”

However, that did not go down well with religious fundamentalists who were quick to point out how she is a ‘bad Muslim’ for letting her kids perform a puja. People could not stop asking Farah whether she is a Muslim to be letting her children perform a puja.

And some even had inputs on what she as a mother, and more importantly as a Muslim mother, should be teaching her children.

And others were pained that despite carrying a ‘Muslim name’, she was following ‘kufar idol worship’ and asked her to mend her ways.

This is not the first time a celebrity has been trolled online by Islamist fundamentalists for celebrating Hindu festivals and traditions. Actor Aamir Khan for playing with his daughter and posting food pictures during Ramzan. Similarly, actor Heena Khan was asked to ‘dress appropriately’ for Ramzan. Popular Bengali actress Nusrat Jahan was insulted on Facebook for celebrating Durga Puja.

Cricketer Mohammad Kaif was attacked on social media by fundamentalists for performing Surya Namaskar and celebrating Christmas with his family. Cricketer Mohammad Shami was also shamed for the ‘un-Islamic’ act of celebrating his daughter’s birthday. Cricketer Irfan Pathan, too, was told by Islamist fundamentalists that Raksha Bandhan is against Islam.
