AN Indian actress has been attacked online after she posted pictures of herself in a bikini while on holiday, with some telling her she should change her religion.
TV actress and model Sara Khan, 29, recently posted pictures of herself on holiday in both Goa and Dubai.
However the photos of the Muslim actress, who became famous for her part in the soap opera Sapna Babul Ka...Bidaai, did not go down well with some commentators who objected to her outfit.
Some of her Instagram followers objected to her wearing a bikini and told her she should change her religion.
One wrote: “I think you forget you are muslim.. You change your relegious [sic] because in Islamic relegious [sic]... These dress can not allowed.”
Another commented: “U are Muslim fear Allah. She mite as well sell her body for doin this disgustin pics sharam Kar ur Muslim not white girl [sic].”
A third added: “Change your religion do what ever then shame on u Sara you was my inspiration but now I hate you Allah will give you punishment for this shame on you [sic].”
Previously Sara had responded to some critics of the images she has used on her social media sites, writing: “We respect each one of you.
“We respect your thoughts, we respect what you feel but you guys should respect us too. We don't do any wrong purposely.”
Sara won the Miss Bhopal title in 2007 and has also worked as a TV anchor.
In 2010 she appeared on the fourth series of Indian version of Big Brother, Bigg Boss and has also made a number of film appearances.
