Robin Padilla Gets Called Out for Celebrating Christmas Despite Being Muslim


In the midst of the festivities during Christmas season, some celebrities are still not safe from the prying eyes of the public. One of them is Robin Padilla, who was criticized on social media for celebrating Christmas despite having a different religion.

On Instagram, the 49-year-old action star's wife, Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla, shared a photo of their family gathering during Christmas. The photo was flooded with many well-wishers and greetings, but one critic left an unsavory comment for Robin Padilla.




According to the Instagram user--whose identity will be withheld for privacy--Robin should not be celebrating Christmas since this is a Christian tradition, and the action star is a Muslim. In the Islam religion, they do not celebrate or even acknowledge Christmas.

To shed light on the matter, the 49-year-old actor shared an insightful message on his personal Instagram account. His statement read as follows:




"Ano man ang ating pananampalataya Ang pasko ay ispiritu ng pagbibigay na walang inaantay na pagbalik. Ito ay isang kaligayahan dahil ang kasiyahan sa mga tao ay wagas. Ito ang araw ng paglimot sa sariling interes at pagsasakatuparan sa interes ng mga mas nangangailangan. Ito ay isa ng kultura at tradisyon ng mga Pilipino na nagpapawi sa mga pangit nating pag uugali at mga nakasanayan. Ang pasko ay pagbabalik loob sa pag ibig sa Dios, Bayan at Kapwa Tao."



On the other hand, many people also defended the actor. A Facebook user claimed that he sees nothing wrong in Robin's action, because Christmas does not discriminate. Meanwhile, a fellow Muslim also offered his insight on the matter:

"Celebrating Christmas for a Muslim with his non-Muslim is not a sin as long you respect each other belief and halal food are being serve. Islam is love. Christmas is love where family are gather together once in a year."
