The legendary musician A.R.Rahman always preferred to stay away from the media high lights and chaos. The oscar winning A.R.Rahman’s daughter Khatija recently made headlines after Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen posted a picture of Khatija clad in a burqa and wrote that she loves A R Rahman’s music but was forced to wear the suffocating Burqa.
To which both the father and daughter had hit back.
Now, again this topic has come up again and Khatija has again taken to her social media and hit back at the writer, “Been only a year and this topic is in the rounds again..there’s so much happening in the country and all people are concerned about is the piece of attire a woman wants to wear. Wow, I’m quite startled. Every time this topic comes the fire in me rages and makes me want to say a lot of things. Over the last one year, I’ve found a different version of myself which I haven’t seen in so many years. I will not be weak or regret the choices I’ve made in life. I am happy and proud of what I do and thanks to those who have accepted me the way I am. My work will speak, God willing. I don’t wish to say any further. To those of you who feel why I’m even bringing this up and explaining myself, sadly it so happens and one has to speak for oneself, that’s why I’m doing it.”
She added, “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 for your persual,”
The comment has took viral in social media.
