Controversy of Irrfan Khan

In July 2016, he landed himself in a controversy over remarks on the Islamic ritual of 'qurbani', or sacrificing animals on Eid-al-Adha, while he was promoting his film Madaari in Jaipur. He said, "Jitne rituals hain, jitney festivals hain, hum unka asal matlab bhool gaye hain. Hamne unko ek tamasha bana diya he. (We have forgotten the real meaning behind rituals and festivals and have turned them into a spectacle). Qurbani ek bahut ahem festival hai... it means to sacrifice. A goat was then a prime source of food, and there were many who went hungry. So you had to, in a way, sacrifice something dear to you and distribute it to people." His comments were criticized by the Muslim clerics. Irrfan in reply tweeted, "Pls Bhaiyon, who r upset with my statement, either u r not ready to introspect or u r in a hurry to reach to a conclusion."
