King Khan targeted for hurting religious sentiments during Ganesh Chathurthi

India is a land of cultural diversity where people speak differently, follow different religion, eat different food, discrete dressing styles and celebrate different festivals.

B-town’s King Khan, Shah Rukh Khan is known to celebrate festivals with equal faith and enthusiasm, be it Diwali, Janmashtami, Eid or Ganesh Chaturthi. And he is teaching his children – Aryan Khan, Suhana Khan and AbRam Khan the same. On September 16, 2018, Shah Rukh shared a picture of AbRam seeking blessings from Ganpati ‘Pappa’ on his social media handles, and captioned it, “Our Ganpati ‘Pappa’ is home, as the lil one calls him.”

 

Needless to mention, this photo of Abram went viral in no time and was loved by almost everyone. Why do we say ‘almost’? Well, some religious fanatics on social media criticised the Zero actor for preaching his son to worship a Hindu God, despite being a Muslim. These are some of the comments that he received after that.

 

 

Shah Rukh Khan has always been vocal about secularism and had shared that he would want his children to love and respect all religions. He was quoted as saying, “I truly believe traditions and religions are all very personal. I think children, grown-ups should be left to learn it themselves.”
