Late actor Irrfan Khan's son Babil has opened about facing discrimination based on his religion in a series of heartbreaking posts on his Instagram stories.

Babil, who is quite active on the photo-video sharing app, said he's "scared" of being judged by his religion due to India's "sudden relapse of the religious divide."

Citing personal experience, Babil wrote, "Mandatory holiday for Eid cancelled on Friday while holiday for Raksha Bandhan on Monday still given. Okay then no problem, I'll just celebrate Eid when it's not Eid on Saturday."

He further wrote, "I know the whole world is in f***ing frenzy but our beautiful secular India's sudden relapse of the religious divide is honestly getting scary. I have friends that have stopped communicating with me because I'm of a certain religion. Friends I played cricket with when I was 12. I miss my friends. My Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh, human friends. I just miss not giving a f*** about what surname I was born with." (sic)

Babil said he's certain that his posts would invite hateful comments like "anti-national" or "go to Pakistan."

"Waiting for the 'toh Pakistan Ja na phir you hostile to patriot' remarks like.... (sic) First of all, I love India, and I'm disclosing to you this since I do my instruction in London and each time I go, I can hardly wait to return and take rickshaw rides with my hernias, have panipuri at Aksa sea shore, travel anyplace; in the woodlands, the groups... I love India. Don't you dare, consider me an enemy of patriot, I guarantee you, I promise you, I'm a boxer, I will break your nose."

He concluded, saying, "One last thing. Thank you for all of the immense love you have shown me and f*** you to all the people who want me to leave the country (well not really, if you want we can have a chat and discuss what the problem is)."
