Shabana Azmi Defends Shah Rukh Khan For His Diwali Pic, Calls Out 'Rabid Islamists'
Shabana Azmi came to Shah Rukh Khan's defence after the Bollywood actor was trolled for sporting tilak on forehead in his Diwali picture.
"Appalled to read that @iamsrk Diwali greeting invites the wrath of rabid Islamists, gets called a "False Muslim" for sporting a tilak!" FUNDOS get a life! Islam is not so weak that it stands threatened by what is a beautiful Indian custom. India's beauty is in her Ganga Jamuni tehzeeb," tweeted Shabana Azmi.
