When AR Rahman was trolled by a section of people for making his daughter wear a Burqa exactly a year ago, the Oscar winning music director slammed them saying that it is the choice of individuals as to what to wear. Now, exactly, a year after the incident, writer Taslima Nasreen revisited the incident and shared a photo of AR Rahman’s daughter Khatija, in which the latter was seen burqa clad and Taslima slammed her for wearing a burqa.

Sharing the photo, Taslima wrote on Twitter, “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!” This comment did not go well with Khatija. She slammed Taslima with an epic reply saying, “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”

For the unversed, last year, AR Rahman and the Slumdog Millionaire team celebrated 10 years of the album. During the event, AR Rahman's daughter Khatija Rahman delivered an emotional speech. However, the speech and the video went viral for wrong reasons. Trolls called AR Rahman a hypocrite and accused him of forcing his daughter to wear burqa. Reacting to this, Rahman shared a picture of his daughters, each one in different attire and shared it with the hashtag #freedomtochoose.

Taslima please go change ur name ur a shame to mankind

It is a personal choice.No one should force its view on anyone

It is a personal choice.No one should force its view on anyone

Someone wearing burka and going about their own life , does no harm to me . But someone bashing me for my choice of clothing or lifestyle is RSS/isis bhakt, full of intolerance

So basically whoever doesn’t wear clothes according to your liking, you will abuse them ? Lol guess what taslima , have you ever travelled the world ? Have you that no two cultures wear the same clothing ?

Khatija minding her own business , not harming anyone by wearing burka . Taslima on other hand attacking someone who did nothing wrong to her . Says a lot about each person and their upbringing .

I’d rather have a neighbour who wears full salwar suits or burka ,and minds their own business , than a neighbour like taslima who looks modern but posts peoples pictures without their permission and bashes them though they haven’t wronged her .

I never though wearing traditional Indian outfits was backward , even though I don’t wear it myself , in summer I’m always wearing shorts ,but I see women wearing saris and suits , doesn’t make them backward or forced .

This is utter nonsense

Westerners would find salwar kameez suffocating and backward too because it covers whole of the body , does that mean they have right to criticise Indian women’s choice to wear it ? No ! Women should wear what they choose to !

I wear Burka and I don’t wear Burka sometimes , both my choice , neither is suffocating or liberating , just a matter of personal choice

Yuck in this heat to be dressed like that in the name of religion.

Wearing sindoor is backward ? Why is taslima wearing bindi ? Modern women mostly don’t wear bindi . Taslima is ignorant , nobody should be criticising anybody’s choice of clothing especially if it’s free will and modest

Not to forget. A R Rahman is born hindu. And he should teach both religions to his daughters.

He should only teach the religion which he feels is the right one to his daughters. It's common sense why he has reverted, the only reason he chooses to stick to Islam as this religion feels right to him.

Nobody in her right mind would want to be dressed like that, no matter what religion. It's unnatural and plain weird.

None of anybody’s business when a grown man or woman chooses their own lifestyle . One persons clothing Shouldn’t suffocate or liberate anyone else .

exactly atlast someone talking with some sense...

Khatija should be able to wear whatever she wants. This is her decision and nobody should be telling other women what to wear.

Who says khatija was forced ? Lol taslima is ignorant
