AR Rahman brushes of critiques with simplicity

When Academy Award winning music composer AR Rahman appeared at the 10 year celebration festivities of the film Slumdog Millionaire, little did he know that of all the things happening at the event, it would be his daughter Khatija’s hijab that would catch attention like wildfire.

Soon enough, him and his daughter were subject to criticism with many pointing out that he was “pushing life backward” for his daughter and even calling him “regressive”.

Instead of indulging in a dialogue, the singer shit all his critics by tweeting a photo captioned: “The precious ladies of my family Khatija ,Raheema and Sairaa with NitaAmbaniji #freedomtochoose (sic).” In the photo both his daughter Raheema and his wife Sairaa are seen without the parda and be made his voice clear on how his daughter Khatija has the “freedom to choose” how she wants to practice her religion.
