Devoleena opens up on hairstylist Jawed Habib controversy!
Renowned hairstylist Jawed Habib seems to have irked the delicate sentiments of many on social media, with an ad in a Kolkata newspaper, promoting his nation-wide chain of salons for the upcoming festive season. Through September and October, the country’s Hindus will be celebrating Navratri, Durga Puja, Dussehra and Diwali.
The print ad showed several Hindu gods — Durga, Ganesh, Karthik, Lakshmi and Saraswati — enjoying a spa day at a Habib’s parlour. The tagline reads, “Gods too visit JH salon.”
This, apparently, hurt the religious sentiments of many, who rushed to social media to vent their anger; abuse, boycott and threaten to kill Habib; and make breathtakingly anti-Islamic comments.
Devoleena Bhattacharjee who won lots of success from Saathiya, takes a stand. On a official statement actress said, “Being a bengali I must say we are the coolest one who enjoy life more than get offenssive with each & everything people say or do. Take a chill pill guys.. yaa thats true this is the story I have been listening all my life that Durga Maa comes to meet her maa baba with her two sons (Ganesh, Kartik) accompanied by Goddess Saraswati & Lakhsmi considered as her sisters. So you know its a festival to celebrate not to get offensive & troll over on social sites. Its an Ad on a news paper Durga Maa is enjoying Spa along with her kids. why the hell people are dragging out All the Hindus & Prophet & god knows wat… Trust me there are 10000 things to think over, to fight, to argue.. think of a constructive solution.. I really would like to know how many you have done somethng constructive to the society, for the society….?? I guess those are Hindus only who dance on Chikni chameli, Jalebi baai during Ganesh chaturthi, Losers!! Plz Stop this hypocrisy… anyway this is the reason I dont write much… Happily waiting Durga Maa to come… ️Spread love Spread Happiness!! Countdown begins”
