Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao left fans in shock as they announced their separation over the weekend. The couple ended their marriage of 15 years and revealed that they have been living separately since some time now. Reacting to the same, Kangana Ranaut took to her Instagram story and spoke about inter-faith marriages and the bringing up of children. “Why children come out only Muslims in inter-faith marriages? questioned Kangana Ranaut.
Why children come out only Muslims in inter-faith marriages? questioned Kangana Ranaut
“At one point, in Punjab, most families raised one son as a Hindu and another one as Sikh, this trend has never been seen among Hindus & Muslims, or Sikhs & Muslims, or anyone else with Muslims for that matter.”
“With Aamir Khan Sir’s second divorce I wonder in an inter-faith marriage why children come out only Muslims. Why women cannot continue to be Hindu? With changing times we must change this, this practice is archaic and regressive…if in one family if Hindu, Jain, Buddhist, Sikh, RadhaSwami and Atheists can live together then why not Muslims?” questioned Kangana Ranaut.
No longer as husband and wife, but as co-parents and family for each other.
Despite their separation, Aamir and Kiran had revealed that they will continue to co-parent their son Azad. The couple had shared in their statement, “Now we would like to begin a new chapter in our lives – no longer as husband and wife, but as co-parents and family for each other. We began a planned separation some time ago, and now feel comfortable to formalise this arrangement, of living separately yet sharing our lives the way an extended family does. We remain devoted parents to our son Azad, who we will nurture and raise together.”
Kiran Rao was the assistant director for ‘Lagaan’, which starred Aamir Khan in the lead and was also his first ever production venture. Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao tied the knot in 2005 and turned parents to Azad in 2011, who was born through surrogacy.
