AR Rahman posted another picture of his daughter Khatija wearing niqab and posing with his wife and another daughter Raheema,who appears without veil and posing with Nita Ambani.
Recently,on the occasion of Slumdog Millionaire’s Oscar’s 10th anniversary,his daughter appeared in the stage wearing niqab.
His daughter Khatija gave a heart-warming speech for her father. Speaking at the event, she said, “Though the world knows you for your music and the award that you won, I have immense love and respect for you because of the values they taught us (three of his children). Your humility matters the most for me. Not an atom of your character has changed ever since you won the Oscar, nothing has changed in you in the last 10 years except the time you spend with us has reduced. I think you are making it up now by taking us on short trips!”
While her speech garnered lot of appreciation, AR Rahman was trolled by the viewers for forcing her daughter to wear a veil. They alleged him of conditioning the women of his family to wear niqabs.Many commented about the double-standard of AR Rahman. Although on seeing the hatred comment her father getting,Khatija made that clear,it was entirely her decision to wear a niqab.
“The recent conversation of myself on stage with my dad has been doing the rounds although I didn’t expect such an overwhelming response. However, there were certain comments which said that this attire is being forced by my dad and that he has double standards.
I would like to say that the attire I wear or the choices I make in my life does not have anything to do with my parents. The veil has been my personal choice with complete acceptance and honour.
I’m a sane mature adult who knows to make my choices in life. Any human being has a choice to wear or do what he/she wants and that’s what I’ve been doing. Hence, kindly don’t make your own judgements without understanding the exact situation She posted it with #freedomofchoice in a black background.
