New Delhi: Days after controversy erupted over his statements related to Islamic practises of qurbani and Ramzan, renowned Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan has slammed clerics.
Reacting to the controversy over his statements, Irrfan Khan wrote a Facebook post sharing what he feels about the entire issue.
“Clerics don’t scare me!! Thank God I don’t live in a country governed by religious contractors (thekedars ),” Irrfan Khan wrote in a Facebook post.
“Pls Bhaiyon, who r upset with my statement, either u r not ready to introspect or u r in a hurry 2 reach 2 a conclusion. For me religion is abt personal introspection , it’s a source for compassion, wisdom and moderation n not for stereotyping n fanaticism. Clerics don’t scare me!! Thank God I don’t live in a country governed by religious contractors (thekedars ) #FREEDOM (sic), ” Irrfan Khan posted on Facebook.
Irrfan Khan had courted controversy by questioning the practice of sacrifice and fasting in Islam.
Talking on the sidelines of the promotion of his upcoming flick ‘Madari’ in Jaipur, Khan had said, “The meaning of Qurbani is to sacrifice something which is close to you instead of any goat or sheep which you just buy to sacrifice. Before sacrificing we should share a bond with that thing otherwise just killing of an animal will not serve the purpose. Nowadays we have lost the relevance behind such religious activities and perform these rituals without knowing the meaning behind them,” according to Deccan Herald.
He also talked about the practice of fasting in Islam.
Khan was quoted as saying by India Today, “Rather than fasting during Ramzan, people should self-introspect… We Muslims have also made a mockery of Muharram. It is meant for mourning and what we do? Take out (tajiya) processions.”
