Mumbai, May 10 : In a major development, the Turkish Actor Burak Deniz who is in India to explore Indian culture has come under the vicious attack of Islamists for visiting Mumbai's Iskon Temple and taking blessing for Pujari. As per the reports, radical Islamist trolled him on social media and even asked him to visit big Mosques around the country instead of the temple.
It should be noted that the Burak who is known for shows such as Don’t Leave and The Ignorant Angels, was in Mumbai this week. He attended an event with actors Anil Kapoor, Sobhita Dhulipala and Aditya Roy Kapur. He also visited to Salman Khan and Aamir Khan's song Ye Raat Aur Ye Doori from their cult film Andaz Apna Apna in a video. He visited the ISKCON temple in Mumbai recently and shared a bunch of videos and photos on Instagram.
Just hours after posting her picture, the Turkish actor was abused by her fellow co-religionists for committing the ‘sin’ of idolatry. While trolling the actor, one user named Firsdoas_8201 wrote, "If you are a Muslim why go to the temple, what a stupid act. If you come to India, go around the big mosque, don't go around the temple."
Another Islamist user name Halimazzsadiaa said, "Burak Deniz was my favourite actor and as far as I know he is a Muslim but here he is seen in India worshipping idols, which hurts me as a Muslim, Burak Deniz I am no longer your fan, I unfollowed you."
This is not the first time that Islamists had trolled Muslim actors for visiting the temple. Earlier, Bollywood actress Sara Ali Khan came under the vicious attack of Islamists for paying a visit to the Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga in Ujjain Madhya Pradesh.
