Khatija took her Facebook account to reply to the trollersShe wrote: “The recent conversation of me on the stage with my dad has been doing the rounds. Although, I didn’t expect such an overwhelming response. However, there were certain comments which said that this attire is being forced by my dad and that he has double standards. I would like to say that the attire I wear or the choices I make in my life does not have anything to do with my parents.
The veil has been my personal choice with complete acceptance and honour. I’m a sane mature adult who knows to make my choices in life. Any human being has a choice to wear or do what he/she wants and that’s what I’ve been doing. Hence, kindly don’t make your own judgements without understanding the exact situation.”
Rehmaan also took Twitter to share a beautiful picture of the leading ladies in his life. The picture has his wife ,his two daughters , Raheema, without niqab and Khatija ,with niqaab and Neeta Ambani ,
He captioned: “The precious ladies of my family Khatija, Raheema and Sairaa with Nita Ambaniji #freedomtochoose”.
To one of the leading News website Rehmaan said:“All my three-children are mature enough to choose what is right for them. As long as my children are doing what they believe in and if there is nothing wrong about it, they’ll always have our support. Khatija reflects the purity I want to achieve.

She reminds me of my growing-up years. She is very clear about what she wants to do with her life and has travelled across the world, but never faced anything for wearing a niqab. She’s quite cool about it. She wants to work for the betterment of the deprived. I am proud of her.”
