While the nation was gripped by the murder of 26-year-old Shraddha Walker, social media went astray to find out the killer Aftab Amin Poonawalla’s religious identity.

Twitter was brimming with suspicions of Aftab Amin Poonawala’s religion.

“Although Poonawala is usually a Parsi surname and the accused claims himself to be humanist, such a heinous crime against a woman should not go unpunished. Regardless of his beliefs, he should be given harshest possible punishment. At the same time, we need to call out ++,” said one user

Oh now, rightfully, homicides wouldn’t have a religion…,” said another user.

There were also speculations of the Aftab being Parsi.

Others attacked his religious identity as the basis for the gruesome crime.

Fact Check: Aftab Amin Poonawala Is A Muslim

While speculations on Twitter went deranged, Aftab’s Instagram profile reveals that he is indeed a Muslim. “I am a Muslim, and the other tern you’re is Hindu. Lord Krishna is the God of Hindus. May I ask why the certain inquisitiveness about my religion?” he wrote in one of the comments.

Furthermore, the victim’s father reported to the police, “My daughter had told my wife in 2019 that she was in a live-in relationship with Aftab Amin Poonawala. Me and my wife did not agree to this because the guy was a Muslim and inter-caste/inter-religion marriage was not accepted in our social circle…,” concluding that the alleged killer is a Muslim man.

Therefore, any claims of him being Parsi or Hindu on social media are false.
