Right-wing brigade wish death of newborn child of Saif and Kareena

Right-wing brigade wish death of newborn child of Saif and Kareena :- On Tuesday, Bollywood couple Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan were blessed with a baby boy at the Breach Candy Hospital in south Mumbai. The couple named their child – Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi.

While it is the first child for the 36-year-old actress Kareena Kapoor Khan, but Saif Ali Khan already has two kids Sara and Ibrahim with ex wife Amrita Singh.

This moment is full of happiness for the Bollywood couple and their respective fans, but at the other sides the right-wing Hindutva supporters were left seething on social media platforms.

The right-wing supporters took objection to the name Taimur was based on a deep-rooted belief that the central Asian ruler had allegedly slaughtered Hindus during his invasion of India in the late fourteenth and early fifteenth century.

Tarek Fatah was one of the first social media users to slam the celebrated Bollywood couple for naming their son Taimur.

Tarek Fatah wrote on his Facebook page – I am astounded. How on earth would any Indian name their son ‘Timur’ or ‘Taimur’ the man who committed a genocide of Hindus and Muslims of India, who built pyramids of human skulls across India. And this is the supposed ‘Muslim royalty’ of Hindustan? “For Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor to name their son ‘Taimur’ is evidence of utter ignorance or an arrogant embrace of the crimes committed by those who invaded and plundered Hindustan. What a fall, from Tagore to Timur.”

However, Tarek Fatah found support on social media Twitter from the usual suspects in the right-wing army, who joined the chorus to condemn Saif and Kareena.
