Yesterday, he hailed India's diplomatic victory over Pakistan after the International Court of Justice (ICJ) stayed the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav.
But he was targeted by Pakistani trollers, with one of them, asking Kaif to remove Mohammad from his name.
A shocked Kaif responded like a true champion, saying he is proud of the name.
He followed it up with another tweet, a brilliant and elaborate one, admitting "India is by far the most inclusive and tolerant country" in the world.
1.Nobody is Thekedaar of any religion.
2. No name is copyrighted by the Thekedaars.
3.India is by far the most inclusive & tolerant country.
