Aamir Ali slammed for celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi; the actor hits back with a befitting reply
Television’s handsome actor Aamir Ali was recently seen celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi with choreographer turned filmmaker Remo D’Souza and his family. However little did Aamir know that celebrating a Hindu festival will invite the wrath of a section of the netizens. The actor was questioned about his faith after he was seen praying Lord Ganesh.
But the actor very coolly handled the situation and hit back at the trolls with an apt response. Read on to know what he said.
On Sunday sharing a few pictures from his visit to Remo D’Souza’s house, Aamir wrote, “Faith, hope, wishes, love and blessings, that’s what Ganpati this year looked like! With my constants @remodsouza @lizelleremodsouza #GanpatiBappaMorya # Ganpati #Ganesha #BappaMorya (sic)”
However soon some users left nasty comments on Aamir’s post. One user wrote, “Are u a Muslim or wats da problem wth these celebrities so da world is more important than Allah so sad.” Whereas another one questioned Aamir’s faith.
Hitting back at the trolls, in a screenshot shared by Pinkvilla, Aamir wrote, “For me, God is one. I may pray to Allah, a friend of mine to Ganesha and another to Jesus! It is all about respecting each other’s beliefs, embracing the learnings of various religions and spreading love, peace, and positivity! We have a deadly virus and a pandemic to fight as a world, let’s not break ourselves by fighting within.”
Several users showered love on Aamir for his views. “Before being Muslim or Hindu he is a man so I don’t think it’s wrong to take a picture besides Ganpati. He is showing respect towards Hinduism and following the rules of the Muslim so it’s not a big deal, ” commented one user.
“Love the picture, Muslim Christian all together in a Hindu Utsav,” wrote another user.
Well, Aamir indeed is seting the right example. After all celebrating a Hindu festival doesn’t make him any less of a Muslim.
