Politician Omar Abdullah has defended star couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan who were trolled for naming their son Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi. The former Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister in a tweet said that the right to name the baby belongs to the parents.
Kareena gave birth to a boy at the Breach Candy Hospital, Mumbai yesterday. Soon after the couple announced their son is named Taimur, social media users went on to vehemently troll the couple. They questioned why they named their son after "the Turco-Mongol conqueror Timur".
Taking Saif and Kareena’s side, Omar hit back at trolls with this tweet:
The only people who get to decide a baby's name are the parents of said baby & the ones they ask. Why should opinion of the rest matter?— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) December 20, 2016
He followed this tweet with a congratulatory one:
So congrats to Saif & Kareena and a long happy life to their baby son. May #TaimurAliKhan have a happy & healthy life.— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) December 20, 2016
