TV actress and former Bigg Boss contestant Sara Khan has pologised after joining Rakhi Sawant in mocking Islam. The video of Sara mocking Islam had gone viral on social media platforms.
Sara had recently posted her music video, where she was seen nude. This had prompted many social media users to slam her as they reminded her of her Muslim background.
Perturbed by social media criticism, Sara had mocked Islam by asking why only women needed to observe purdah(modesty). Using disparaging tone, Sara was seen in video mocking Islam as she said, “We women have given birth to you. If we were not there, how would you come to this world saalon.”
She then attacked Muslims who criticised her for her nude video saying that they needed to cover their face so that they could not see such videos. She was then joined by controversial reality show star, Rakhi Sawant, who said, “I will make them wear burqa.” To which, an excited Sara reacted, “Exactly, let’s make them blind (Saalaon ko andha kar do).”
Her video of mocking Islam did not go down well with social media users, who found her tone and derogatory words in poor taste. Faced with growing public anger, the former Bigg Boss contestant posted an apology on her Instagram page saying that she was sorry for hurting the sentiments of Muslims. She wrote, “Apologies to all the Muslims for what I said I don’t know what was I thinking. Extremely sorry.”
Sara has been in several controversies after failing to secure a future within the entertainment industry. Her career as an actress is as good as over. She was in news earlier this year after she posted nude video with her sister while holidaying in Sri Lanka.
