Irrfan Khan has been in the news lately for irking Islamic clerics with his remarks on fasting and Qurbani during the month of Ramazan. The actor advised people to introspect rathar than fast. He also questioned the practice of slaughtering animals in the month of peace.

The Lunchbox actor is now back in the news for not only condemning the Dhaka attacks but also questioning the silence of Muslims over the sordid event through a Facebook post in Hindi. He stated how some people misunderstand the message of the Quran and kill innocents in the name of God. 

Irrfan specifically expressed his displeasure over the silence of Muslims and suggested that they should spread the real message of Islam, which is against killing of innocents. 

His entire post reads, “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. YEH EK SAWAAL HAIN !!”
