Gone are those days when kids are named after the gods and goddesses, naming their kids after the two halves of parents names has been a trend for years and naming after adjectives from foreign languages also did well for ages.
What happened in Saif Ali Khan & Kareena Kapoor’s baby scenario is quite different, this Bollywood couple named their child after a king, naming after a king is just common and simple, but what if that king is a brutal conqueror and a mass murderer.
Yes! that’s the fact, Twitterati went crazy over the name of the couple’s new baby boy, Timur.
Soon after the birth of the boy, the couple revealed the name, Timur Ali Khan Pataudi.
Coming back to the story, Timur is an Iranian invader who found Timur dynasty in India, he is considered as the most powerful Muslim emperor who invaded India in ancient times, Timur committed mass murders during his invasions.
The extension of those tweets is quite crazy and hilarious at the same time.
Naming ur kid in India as Taimur Ali Khan is almost like naming ur kid in US as OsamaBinLaden, both r infamous mass murderers. Secularism?

I think instead of screwing up Mumbai station names, the Maha government should change Taimur Ali Khan's name, that too on priority basis!!

#TaimurAliKhan What kind of people name their children after nomadic invaders? Does anyone name children as Hitler in Poland?
