One of the most versatile actor in the Bollywood cinema Irrfan Khan is deeply hurt with the kind of terrorist attack going on around the world. At latest when the terrorists attacked in Dhaka on this holy month of Ramzaan, he was so upset that he took to facebook to open his hearts out.
He wrote on Facebook,“ During childhood, our religion taught us that if your neighbour is hungry, then you shouldn’t eat without him. After hearing about the news in Bangladesh, I feel terribly hollow inside. For not knowing what’s written in the Quran, people were killed in the holy month of Ramzaan. An incident takes place in one place, but Islam and the entire world’s Muslims are given a bad name.”
He also added that “The foundation of Islam is peace, grace and feeling others’ pain. So should a Muslim person keep quiet and let the religion be insulted? Or should the Muslim person understand the meaning of Islam himself and help others understand that cruelty and committing massacre is not Islam. That is the question.”
The original post was in Urdu read, ““Bachpan mein mazhab ke baare mein kaha gaya tha ki aapka parausi(neighbor) bhooka ho toh aapko usko shamil kiye bina akele khana nehi khana chahiye. Bangladesh ki khabar sunker ander ajeeb vehshat ka sannatta hai…
Quran ki aayeten naa janne ki wajeh se ramzaan ke mahine mein logon ko qatal ker diya gaya. Haadsa ek jagah hota hai , badnaam Islaam aur poori duniya ka musalman hota hai. Woh Islaam jiski buniyaad hi aman, reham aur dusro ka dard mehsoos kerna hai. Aise me kya musalman chup baitha rahe aur mazhab ko badnaam hone de? ya wo khud Islaam ke sahi mayne(meaning) ko smajhe aur doosron ko bataye, ki zulm aur qatlo gharat(massacre) karna Islaam nehi hai.”
Irrfan Khan hardly opens up and say something like this, which really means that it’s a time to change the perspective towards humanity and life.
