Entertainment Kangana Ranaut questions those who trolled Shakib al Hasan

Actress Kangana Ranaut has reacted to the news of Bangladeshi cricketer Shakib Al Hasan‘s apology that he tendered after attending Kali Puja in Kolkata for which hundreds of Muslim social media users trolled him. On Twitter, the actress questioned, without taking any names, why people were afraid of temples. There must be some reason, she surmised.

Kangana said that even if Hindus were to spend their lives in mosques, Sri Rama could not be taken out of their hearts (although the Bengali version of Dipawali, unlike the north Indian version, has little connection with the legend of Sri Rama). She went on to question the faith of people indulging in photo-ops and asked if the Hindu past attracted Muslims to the temples.

Kangana made this post after hundreds of Bangladeshi Muslim Twitter users — and many Indian Muslims too — questioned the Bangladeshi cricketer for attending a Hindu religious festival in neighbouring India.

Bangladeshi cricketer Shakib al Hasan attended the puja in Kolkata on 12 November in the Kankurgachi area. However, he received threats from Muslims on Facebook live and post which he apologised. He had said, “As a practising Muslim, I always try to follow religious customs. Please forgive me if I have done anything wrong.”

Meanwhile, Bangladeshi’s Rapid Action Battalion on Tuesday arrested the 28-year-old Mohsin Talukdar who had threatened Shakib al Hasan.

While Bangladeshi and Indian Bengali Muslims have traditionally been less hostile to Hindu practices than their Pakistani counterparts, shrill voices of intolerance dominate the social media space in Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, Kangana Ranaut has recently wrapped up the schedule of film Thalaivi and returned to Manali for her brother’s wedding. Apart from Thalaivi, Kangana has Tejas in hand, where she essays the role of an Indian Air Force pilot. She has Dhaakad, an action thriller film. She has announced also Aparajita Ayodhya, which is based on the Babri Masjid demolition incident and a yet-to-be-titled film based on the exodus of the Kashmiri Pandits.
