A few days ago, ex-Bigg Boss contestant Gauahar Khan and Payal Rohatgi got into an ugly Twitter spat after Payal tweeted about the removal of Article 370. Gauhar slammed Payal for her comments and called her a “bigoted person.” Now, Gauahar’s ex-boyfriend Kushal Tandon came out in support of Gauahar and revealed to the world that he once loved a Muslim girl.

He took to his Instagram to share a screenshot of a message to “whoever it may concern” and wrote, “Maturity is realising lots of shit doesn’t require one’s comment, that’s what i was trying to practice all these years by not commenting on things, but you know ma’am i’m humble with just a hint of tupac, I am a Hindu and i can say proudly that once i was in love with a girl and she was and is a muslim..”.

Earlier Payal had tweeted, “If Article 370 can’t be removed then ask #KashmiriMuslims 2 evict Kashmir. Centre should make it #Defence area. Kashmiris start living in other cities of India. Kashmir will always be a part of India whether it has Kashmiris in it or no. U guys threw Pandits out, now evict Muslims.” (sic)

Gauahar’s sharp reply on this read, “Hahahahaha so says a person who is living happily in a building that is 90% Muslims ! In An area that has harmony amongst the koli, christian n muslim population who live there! Im proud that atleast the Muslims in ur building tolerate a bigoted person like u!!” (sic). She then went on to tweet, “Unlike many other buildings that don’t even rent out to Muslims !! Spreading hatred is easy! Shame on such thoughts!! India is beautiful because of its diversity! Shame on anyone who wants to divide!” (sic)

The spat continued till it got too much and Gauahar blocked Payal. Payal went on to share the screenshot of Gauahar blocking her and wrote, “After all tagging my tweet, to get publicity for herself in her nonexistent film career this reality show feminist blocks me . @MumbaiPolice I am bringing into your attention that this woman has tried to call 4 my lynching because I gave a suggestion on curbing terrorism in J&K”.
