The death of Youtuber and reality show contestant Danish Zehen has come as a shock to the family, but there are multiple issues that they are grappling with in the tough period. His brother has revealed that clerics have been asking his mother to warn youths against ‘following’ his path, apart from trolls and attempts to hack his social media accounts being major issues for them.
21-year-old Danish passed away in a car accident on 20 December while driving from Kurla, Mumbai to Navi Mumbai. He was a popular vlogger for his content about beauty products, motorbikes and hairstyles with more than 1.2 million followers on Instagram. The youngster was also a contestant on the reality show ‘Ace of Space’.
Several social media users have been spewing hate against Danish since his death, questioning his career choice involving music, dance and public performances as ‘it was against Islam.’ Now, according to reports, his brother Gufran Mullah has said that some Muslim clerics visited their house since Danish’s death to tell his mother that Danish’s actions were a 'sin.'
The clerics added that their priests must be cursing him to damnation, Gufran stated. Danish’s brother was furious that they asked his mother to post a video on social media to warn youths against choosing a similar career path.
Gufran, however, doesn’t believe Danish’s actions were a sin as he was an ‘innocent 21-year-old’ who lived life on his terms and always helped others. His message to the trolls is to request them to let him rest in peace.
He said if the late artiste actually did something wrong, he can pray for the Almighty to forgive him. Gufran was of the view that people who were criticising him on social media were just ‘jealous.’ He revealed that Danish had informed him about how people mistreated him. He only recently discovered that there was a video of Danish getting beaten up by boys who’d always target him.
Gufran added that attempts are on by hackers to steal Danish’s social media accounts. He claimed that every day Danish’s phone gets hundreds of emails for password reset for his Facebook, YouTube and other social media accounts. He also stated that Danish’s Instagram account has been deleted, and they have even registered a complaint with the cyber cell.
Sara Ali Khan, Rannvijay Singh, Vikas Gupta, Shilpa Shinde have been among those celebrities who conveyed their condolences and grief over Danish's death.
