Rishi Kapoor slams haters for trolling Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan's baby's name Taimur
Veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor in a series of tweets lashed out at those who have trolled Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan's newborn baby boy's name Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi.
Rishi Kapoor took to Twitter to say that it's no one's business to comment on Saif and Kareena's decision to name their child.
After Saif and Kareena announced their son's name as Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi, Twitterati went on to troll the couple and the baby's name. They questioned why they named their son after 'the Turco-Mongol conqueror Timur'.
Taimur (or Timur) translates to 'iron'. He was a 14th century Turco-Mongol ruler and Mughal dynasty founder, Babur's ancestor. His ambition was to rebuild the empire of Genghis Khan, who had died a century prior, and his conquests included large parts of Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Turkey, Syria, and Delhi.
A promoter of arts and literature, he is behind the stunning city of Samarkand in Uzbekistan. History books remember him as the plunderer who razed cities — possibly one reason why some Twitter users reacted to the news with expected fanaticism.
One Twitter user wrote, "Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan naming their child Taimur is equivalent to Europeans naming their children Hitler." Another said, "Taimur was a looter who killed over one lakh Hindus in India. Arabic name to prove themselves real Muslim."
Rishi Kapoor, in a series of tweets, hit back at trolls and said:

Earlier, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah criticised those who made fun of Saif and Kareena for naming their newly-born son Taimur.
Abdullah said that it's their right to decide the name of their baby and the opinion of the rest doesn't matter.
At 7.30 am on Tuesday, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan welcomed their first child, a baby boy. Kareena opted for a natural delivery, supervised by legendary Mumbai gynaecologist, Dr Rustom Soonawala and his team at Breach Candy hospital. The doctor is also the one to have brought into the world Kareena, sister Karisma and cousin Ranbir.
Kareena and Saif got married on October 16, 2012. The actress has been in the news for the last nine months, setting an example for expectant mothers. She was working and making public appearances till as recently as two days ago when friends Amrita Arora Ladak, Malaika Arora and Karisma hosted an advance Christmas party for her. (See pic!)
