Naseeruddin Shah’s Stern Message To “Section Of Indian Muslims Celebrating Taliban”

“I am an Indian Muslim and, as Mirza Ghalib said years ago, my relationship with my God is informal. I don’t need political religion,” Mr Shah stated.

Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah, days after the Taliban took control of neighbouring Afghanistan, condemned those in India who are celebrating this development.

“While the Taliban regaining power in Afghanistan is a cause for concern for the whole world, celebrations by a section of Indian Muslims of the barbarians are no less concerning,” Mr Shah said in a video.

The acting maestro added that each Indian Muslim should mull over whether they are interested in a “reformed, modern Islam” or the “barbaric values” of past centuries.

“I am an Indian Muslim and, as Mirza Ghalib said years ago, my relationship with my God is informal. I don’t need political religion,” Mr Shah stated.

He further distinguished between what he called “Hindustani Islam” and what is practised elsewhere. “May God not bring a time when Islam in India changes so drastically that it is no longer recognisable,” he added.
