Offensive claims by social media users have upset the bride and her father
- A video of a Pakistani father affectionately kissing his daughter on her wedding day was shared on social media with offensive comments by the Indian politicians and media.
The State Joint Secretary of The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) Delhi, Anima Sonkar, shared the video with the caption, “What will this be called? Because in his most celebrated TV series Mr. Secular Amir Khan did not show any social evil in Islamic society.”
The BJP Delhi leader, Gaurav Khari, shared the same video on Facebook and wrote, “After making her sign the Nikahnama, maulvi blessed her in a special way.”
The ABP News journalist, Astha Kaushik, shared the video saying, “Even the bride’s mother and friends will not grab her in this manner. Elders give affectionate blessings.” This tweet drew over 7,000 likes and more than 2,000 retweets.
