For this, we will check the comments on Aftab’s social media accounts where he himself accepted to be a Muslim.

”Aftab Poonavala is the name of the guy. He was a Parsi. Not that it matters but people will again paint it as a Hindu-Muslim conflict. It was an inhumane act against an innocent girl,” wrote a user namely Syed Mahmood.

Another user namely Mohammad Meraj Alam said, ”Balatkari ka samarthan karne walon suno meri baat. Tumko us ladki ke maut ka afsos nahi hai..tumko sirf Aftab naam hone se problem hai…waise wo aftab poonawala(parsi) hai.”

To which, Aftab wrote, ”I am a Muslim and the other term you’re is Hindu. Lord Krishna is the God of Hindus. May I ask why the certain inquisitiveness about my religion???”

The user informed why he asked the question, ”Because, I want to correct say you HI – if You are Muslim I’ll say You Salam Aleykum. Otherwise, I would need to say Namaste.”
