A Twitter user slammed Indian actress Kareena Kapoor for marrying a Muslim and naming her son Taimur despite being a Hindu. The attack came after she condemned the rape and killing of an eight-year-old Asifa Bano in Jammu and Kashmir. She demanded justice for the girl when a Twitter user confronted her for marrying a Muslim actor Saif Ali Khan.
The Twitter user wrote, “She should be ashamed of the fact that despite being a Hindu, she is married to a Muslim. Has a child with him and named him Taimur, after an Islamic barbarian.”
Kareena Kapoor’s co-star from ‘Veere Di Wedding’, Swara Bhaskar came to Kareena Kapoor’s defense and responded to the criticism with a harsh reply that said, “You should be ashamed you exist. That God gave you a brain which you chose to fill with hate and a mouth you chose to spew filth from. You are a shame on India and Hindus. That shits like you feel emboldened to talk this crap publicly is this government’s legacy.”

Kareena Kapoor posted her picture holding a placard stating that being an Indian it was shameful to have an innocent girl brutally raped merely for her religion and that they demand justice for her.
The rape case of a minor have ignited communal tensions as the apparent reason behind the horrible incident was to instill fear among Muslims living in Hindu-majority area of Jammu and Kashmir. The hardliners are, however, holding countrywide protests to defend the culprits in the case while celebrities from Bollywood and Indian cricketing fraternity have stressed the government to bring the transgressors to justice.
Kareena Kapoor joined other actors like Parineeti Chopra, Priyanka Chopra, Kalki Koechlin, Sanjay Dutt, Javed Akhtar, Farhan Akhtar, Anushka Sharma and other. They in their separate statements have unanimously demanded the government to make India safer for women.
