Babil Khan, the late actor Irfan Khan’s son, responded to an Instagram follower who inquired about his religion. Taking to Instagram stories, Babil shared a screenshot of a comment, which asked, “Brother are you a Muslim?” In his reply, he wrote, “I don’t belong to any religion.” “I am Babil. I have read the Bible, Bhagwad Gita, Quran and I am in the middle of reading Guru Granth Sahib. I am for all. How we help each other evolve is the basis of all the religions.” Babil stated last month that he was dropping out of college to focus solely on his acting profession. He was a student at the University of Westminster, where he was studying cinema.
Babil wrote on his Instagram post
On his Instagram post, he wrote, “I will miss you so much. My beautiful friends. I have a very tight circle here in Mumbai, literally 2-3 friends in total. You all gave me a home in a strange cold place and made me feel like I belonged.” Babil went on to bid farewell to the University of Westminster in the caption. “Thank you, I love you. Film BA, dropping out today, with over 120 credits cause I am giving it all to acting as of now. Good bye University of Westminster. I love you my truest friends,” he wrote.
I am a human being and did not want to be judged on the basis of my religion
However, this is not for the first time that Babil spoke about his religion. Earlier Babil has talked about being raised as a man without a religion. “I have enjoyed the festivities of Diwali, Holi, Raksha Bandhan and Eid and I have also been to a Church and paid my respect,” he replied to an Instagram user last year. “I love people, I am trying to stand for people,” he added.
Last year, Babil wrote on Instagram Stories that he is a human being and did not want to be judged on the basis of his religion. “I am not my religion, I am a human a human being just like the rest of the population of India,” he wrote.
