British-Pakistani boxer Amir Khan received death threats and abuses from followers on Instagram after he posted a picture of a Christmas tree that he had set up in his house to surprise his daughter, on Wednesday.
Amir Khan is one celebrity who quite regularly posts on Instagram to let fans have a peek inside his world. The boxer who recently reconciled with his wife Faryal Makhdoom, put up the picture of a Christmas tree he had set up to surprise his daughter.
The response he received was quite harsh on Instagram, with some even issuing death threats to the boxer. A few Muslim followers of the boxer chastised him for celebrating the Christian festival. However, others were of the view that since he had put up the tree to delight his daughter, it was a sweet gesture.
‘A Christmas tree for his daughter doesn’t mean that he’s changed religions,’ wrote one Instagram follower.
