LONDON: (Christian Times) – Pakistan-born British boxer Amir Khan had put up a Christmas tree to celebrate the birth of Christ at his home and shared the picture on Instagram, saying that while everyone else was sleeping, he had decorated this tree and his daughter would be so happy to see this when she wakes up.
However, some of the social media fans didn’t like it and some even went on to threaten him for his life. One of them stated that Amir Khan couldn’t be celebrating Christmas being a Muslim. Another asked him why he had shared this post. Meanwhile, another said that Amir and his family will soon ‘end’.
One of the Insta users said that Muslims could not celebrate Christmas and though it was okay to celebrate it living in a foreign country, there was no need to have a Christmas tree at home because it could confuse the children.
Some of them came out in Amir’s support as well. One of them said that he was a Muslim and put up a Christmas tree at his home every year. Another said that some of the users had made shameful remarks on the post. Another said that everyone had the right to decorate their homes.
