Pakistani TikTok star has been receiving backlash online after she shared a video in which she wore crucifix pendant around her waist which did hurt Christian community.
Veteran actor, Bushra Ansari also criticized Mirza and said, “Aik dur fitteh mun to banta hai (this calls for a face palm), in jaahil stars par afsos [hai] (disappointed by these ignorant stars). Na Islam ka pata na kisi or religion ka (they have no regard for Islam, nor any other religion).”
Mirza responded to Ansari, “This is not okay at all! Please do not judge anyone without knowing anything Amma Jee. I respect you a lot but you can’t defame anyone without knowing the facts. Islam ki baat ap kese karsakti hain aunty, ap koi tableeghi jamaat nahi chala rahin (besides, how can you preach Islam when it’s evident you’re not running a transnational Islamic movement yourself).”
Mirza added, “I would just request you to look at your own shortcomings before judging me for mine.”
Moreover, Mirza then took to social media and clarified that she did not want to hurt sentiments of Christian community purposely. She wrote, “My intention was never to hurt anyone, I found out through the comment section of my videos after posting them that the chain I’m wearing on my waist has a Christian amulet and I deleted the videos instantly after. It was my fault and I am accepting my mistake.”
