The music maestro AR Rahman firmly slammed those who criticised him for allegedly forcing his daughter Khatija to wear a niqab at an event that marked 10 years of his Slumdog Millionaire Oscar win.
During the event, Khatija was invited on the stage to interview her father, but when she stepped on the stage wearing a niqab, social media started speculating that AR Rahman forced her to wear niqab. The event took place on Monday.
