Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor was target of hate speech from various people over supporting Asifa Bano, the 8 year old that was mercilessly raped and murdered. The horrendous act that happened at Kathua, in the Indian Occupied Kashmir, was recently condemned by many people around the globe, including celebrities.
A picture of Kareena Kapoor in which she was holding a card in support of Asifa was posted on social media twitter by Swara Bhasker, a co-actor with Kareena in the upcoming movie “Veere Di Wedding”. A twitter user criticized Kareena Kapoor by saying that she should be ashamed that she married a Muslim while being Hindu and named her son Taimur a savage barbarian Muslim conqueror.
