Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman is known for being shy and someone who has always stayed away from controversies. But his daughter Khatija Rahman has just shown why she is not like her father and will not tolerate any criticism to her faith or individual choices.

Writer Taslima Nasreen took to Twitter to call AR Rahman's daughter Khatija's burqa suffocating. The latter slammed her with a classy reply.

Taslima, who is known for her Islamophobia, had tweeted, “I absolutely love A R Rahman’s music. But whenever i see his dear daughter, i feel suffocated. It is really depressing to learn that even educated women in a cultural family can get brainwashed very easily!”

Not prepared to let go of Taslima’s hateful rant, Khatija wrote on Instagram, "Been only a year and this topic is in the rounds again..there's so much happening in the country and all people are concerned about is the piece of attire a woman wants to wear. Wow, I'm quite startled. Every time this topic comes the fire in me rages and makes me want to say a lot of things..Over the last one year, I've found a different version of myself which I haven't seen in so many years. I will not be weak or regret the choices I've made in life. I am happy and proud of what I do and thanks to those who have accepted me the way I am. My work will speak, God willing.. I don't wish to say any further. To those of you who feel why I'm even bringing this up and explaining myself, sadly it so happens and one has to speak for oneself, that's why I'm doing it. Dear Taslima Nasreen, I'm sorry you feel suffocated by my attire. Please get some fresh air, cause I don't feel suffocated rather I'm proud and empowered for what I stand for. I suggest you google up what true feminism means because it isn't bashing other women down nor bringing their fathers into the issue. I also don't recall sending my photos to you for your perusal (sic)"

Khatija's Instagram post has received a lot of love from fans who are appreciating her for giving a fitting reply to Taslima's tweet.
