The Taliban's takeover of Afghanistan has created political, diplomatic and religious turmoil throughout the region.
The victory of the Taliban against the United States was hailed by a section of Muslims in India as well.
This is strongly condemned by many important Muslim figures in the country.
Leading Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah raised his voice on the issue and termed sympathy with the Taliban foolish.
The video that surfaced on Instagram, saw Naseeruddin Shah raising some important questions revolving around "reforms and values".
He was quoted saying,"Although the return of Taliban is a question of great worry yet a greater peril lies within the Indian section of Muslims supporting these rogue assasins.."
He further said that Indian Muslims should ask themselves whether they wish to move forward with "islaah" (reforms) & jiddatpasandgi (mordernity) or whether they wish to stick with the stereotypical staunch ideologies.
He called himself a "Hindustani Muslim" and distinguished between Indian Islam and Islam in the rest of the world.
Shah said that Indian Islam has always been different from Islam around the world, "God forbid that a time comes when it (Islam) will change so much that we will not even recognize it", he further added.
Shah winded off by quoting Ghalib and his verse "My relationship with Allah Mian is at a very comfortable level, I don't need a political religion.."
He added that every Indian Muslim should ask himself whether he wants reform and modernization in his religion or whether he wants the barbarism of the past centuries.
