Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's brother Ayazuddin Siddiqui has been accused of sharing an objectionable post on Facebook. A case was lodged against Ayazuddin Siddiqui for hurting religious sentiments the police said. Ayazuddin denied all the allegations. He told news agency ANI that he noticed the objectionable picture of "shiv ji Maharaj on his page and wrote a comment saying pictures that hurt people's sentiments should not be posted" but the police instead of catching the actual culprits, filed a case against him.
"Someone posted a derogatory picture of Lord Shiva. I confronted him and wrote you should not share posts that hurt anyone's sentiments. Instead, a case was filed against me. Charges should be investigated," Ayazuddin said.
The FIR was lodged by one Bharat Thakur, who is reportedly an activist of Hindu Yuva Vahini in Muzaffarnagar. The police said they are investigating whether Ayazuddin's phone was used to post the picture. The police said the actor's brother did not want to hurt anyone... and "his comments condemned the derogatory picture but by mistake, he may have copied the picture while commenting on it."
In 2016, the duo brothers were barred from participating in Ramlila in his hometown by Shiv Sena activists because he was a Muslim man. Gangs of Wassepur actor, Nawazuddin and his family hail from Uttar Pradesh's Budhana in Muzaffarnagar district
