Rehman said on Khatija’s burqa controversy
Two years ago, AR Rahman broke his silence on the controversy over daughter Khatija wearing a burqa, saying – My daughter sang a song and got a lot of love for her. My children have been brought up in such a way that they know the difference between good and bad and are free to do whatever they want. Wearing Khatija’s burqa is a decision related to religious significance and she wants to wear it because she wears it. It is her decision what to wear. I don’t hold a grudge against anyone for criticisms.
