Legendary musician AR Rahman is back in the news, but this time over his daughter, Khatija Rahman, being backlashed for wearing a burqa. It all began with Bangladeshi-Swedish writer Taslima Nasreen who stated that she feels ‘suffocated’ when she looks at the former wearing burqa, and further question her ‘education’. However, Khatija is coming out in the open and giving a befitting reply to the troll.
Taslima Nasreen, an alleged feminist, took to her Twitter a few days back and wrote, “I absolutely love A R Rahman’s music. But whenever I see his dear daughter, I feel suffocated. It is really depressing to learn that even educated women in a cultural family can get brainwashed very easily!” To this, AR Rahman’s daughter has taken to her Instagram account and shut the hate for once and all.
Khatija shared a string of posts, asking Taslima to first learn the meaning of feminism and to stop bringing down women. Furthermore, she expressed her love for her religion and asked people to stop targeting people in the name of religion.
In one of her posts, Rahman wrote, “Dear Taslima Nasreen, I’m sorry you feel suffocated by my attire. Please get some fresh air, cause I don’t feel suffocated rather I’m proud and empowered for what I stand for. I suggest you google up what true feminism means because it isn’t bashing other women down nor bringing their fathers into the issue 🙂 I also don’t recall sending my photos to you for your perusal.”
She also took a dig at the humanitarian in her recent post, that showcased her enjoying family time with a throwback picture that is captioned, “Peaceful time with family away from “suffocation”
