Kangana Ranaut reacts over Cricketer Shakib apologizing for attending Kolkata Puja

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has reacted to Bangladesh cricketer Shakib Al Hasan's apology for hurting sentiments after receiving flak over attending the inauguration ceremony of a Kali Puja mandap.

She took to Twitter and wrote,"क्यूँ डरते हो इतना मंदिरों से? कोई तो वजह होगी? यूँही कोई इतना नहीं घबराता, हम तो सारी उम्र मस्जिद में बिता दें फिर भी राम नाम कोई दिल से नहीं निकाल सकता, ख़ुद की इबादत पे भरोसा नहीं या अपना ही हिंदू अतीत तुम्हें मंदिरों से आकर्षित करता है? पूछो ख़ुद से...."

Her tweet roughly translates to, "Why are you afraid of temples?" There must be some reason? Even if we spend all our lives in the mosque, no one can remove the name of Ram from our heart, Don't you have trust in your beliefs or your own Hindu past attracts you to temples? Ask yourself…

According to Dhaka Tribune, Shakib visited Kolkata's Kakurgachi to attend the inaugural ceremony of a Kali Puja mandap. However, this did not go well with the player's fans who started criticising him.

"I want to start by saying I am a proud Muslim and try to practice religion properly. There will be mistakes and that is part of life. I apologize if I have made a mistake and apologize if I have hurt your sentiment," Dhaka Tribune quoted Shakib as saying in a video.

Terming as false media reports that suggested he inaugurated the puja, Shakib in his video said he travelled to Kolkata for a felicitation program on behalf of the authority of that area.

Shakib also received a death threat from a fundamentalist on Facebook Live, accusing the cricketer of blasphemy.
