Recently AR Rahman’s daughter Khatija was trolled for wearing a niqab at a party. People judged her as being an orthodox and an extremist. AR Rahman was also accused of forcing her daughter to wear niqab after she interviewed him on stage at the 10th-anniversary celebrations of his Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire in a saree, wearing a niqab. After her father got trolled, she explained her position and wrote on her Facebook account, “I would like to say that the attire I wear or the choices or the choices I make in my life does not have anything to do with my parents. The veil has been my personal choice with complete acceptance and honor. I am a sane mature adult who knows to make choices in life.” After the incident, on 7th of February, Rahman shared a picture of his wife and daughters with Nita Ambani on twitter and wrote, “the precious ladies of my family Khatija, Raheema and Sairaa with NitaAmbaniji #freedomtochoose.” Khatija was seen wearing a niqab in this picture while his wife and his other daughter aren’t. Recently, he shared another picture of his kids posing for a magazine on Instagram. He captioned it as, “Raheema Khatija and Ameen posing for Hello magazine.” Khatija is seen wearing a niqab in this picture as well.
