Actress Huma Qureshi massively trolled for posing with alcohol bottle and sharing a cocktail recipe, here's what the internet user has to say
It all happened when Bollywood actress Huma Qureshi decided to share a cocktail idea, to her fans on Instagram, by sharing a picture. In the picture, Huma was posing with a glass of whisky and a bottle of alcohol and cocktail.
She captioned the picture saying, "When Mumbai's winter afternoons still feel like summer you fix yourself a refreshing Johnnie Lemon Hiighball Here's how I got this lovely drink going....Filled a highball glass way lots of ice Pour 50 ml of Johnnie Walker..Top it with 120 ml Lemonade Finally, dropped in a lemon wedge and voila! @johnniewalkerindia #spon #johnniewalkerhighball #johnniewalkerscotch #johnniewalkerindia." However, as soon as she shared it, trolls started attacking her.
The problem people had with the actress was that she being a Muslim can't be posing with a liquor bottle as their religion forbids it and she got trolled for the same.
Some called her "a shame to Muslims", others labelled her as the reason why Muslims have a tarnished reputation, and others naturally went on just insulting her.
"Sharab peena haram hai kuran mein", "this is not allowed in Islam", "have you no shame", "shameful", "this is not allowed in Islam", "have some shame", "kuch to izzat karo musalman hone ki", "don't endorse alcohol. that too after being a Muslim".
There were a few who, supported Huma and said that it should be her choice entirely. Saying, Huma Qureshi is a citizen of a country that is democratic and free.
