Indian actor R Madhavan was trolled by a certain section of social media users for keeping a cross at home. Last year, precisely on August 15, R Madhavan had posted a marvellous picture of himself along with his father and son Vedaant celebrating Raksha Bandhan and Avani Avittam which is a Hindu festival.
In a strange turn of events, a troll noticed a cross in the lovely picture and then decided to highlight it by questioning R Madhavan’s faith.
The picture indeed looks absolutely beautiful as the trio can be seen celebrating the festival with joy and happiness. However, one of his followers spotted a cross in the background and wrote, “Why do they have across in the background? Is that a Mandir? You just lost my respect. Do you find Hindu Gods in Christian churches? All this is a fake drama you did today.”
Here is the screenshot of the tweet by a fan who hit out at R Madhvan:
Meanwhile, Madhavan gave an epic reply so much so that he taught the user a good lesson with a long note. He shared on Twitter: “I really don’t worry about respect from the likes of you. I hope you get well soon. Surprised that in u r sickness you did not see the Golden temple pic there too and asked if I converted to Sikhism.”
R Madhavan went on to emphasise that he respects all religions. He wrote: “I have a blessing from the Dargas there too and blessing from all religious places around the world. Some gifted and some bought. My home is home to staff from all faiths and we pray at a common alter. Like any defence personal will tell you, happens in every unit.
I have been taught from my very childhood to maintain my identity with pride but at the same time RESPECT each and every faith, belief and region. ‘Yemmadhamum Sammadham’ (I respect each religion as my own). I hope my son follows that too.”
“I have prayed at every Darga, Gurudwara and Church. I have had the good fortune to visit when a temple was not around. They have shown me utmost love and respect knowing that I am a Hindu. How can I not reciprocate that. All I have is a lot of love and respect to give as my vast travels and experience has proved, is the only true faith. Peace and love to you too.”
