Zaira Wasim is once again making headlines and this time for voicing her opinion about the current situation in Kashmir. The actress, who made her debut with Aamir Khan’s Dangal, made headlines when she had taken to social media to announce her withdrawal from Bollywood. While her decision surely sparked a debate on Twitter, a few had slammed the actress for being ungrateful to films who made her a known face in India. Post the announcement, there has been a radioactive silence from Zaira’s side. But the actress would surprise her fans by posting her thoughts about the current scenario.
After talking about article 370 being revoked in Jammu and Kashmir, Zaira has now talked at length about the situation in Kashmir after the abrogation. Sharing a picture of a flower, Zaira wrote a long note alongside about the current situation of Kashmir. Her message read, “Kashmir continues to suffer and see- saw between hope and frustration। There’s a false and uneasy semblance of calmness in place of escalating despair and sorrow। Kashmiris continue to exist and suffer in a world where it is so easy to place restrictions on our liberty. Why do we have to live in world where our lives and wills are controlled, dictated and bent? Why is it so easy to have our voices silenced? Why is it so easy to curtail our freedom of expression? Why aren’t we ever allowed to voice our opinions, let alone our disprovals to decisions that are made contrary to our wishes? Why is it that instead of trying to see the cause of our view, our view is just condemned ruthfully? What is so easy to curb our voices so severely? Why can we not live simple lives without always having to wrestle and remind the world of our existence. Why is that life of a Kashmiri is just about experiencing a lifetime of crisis, blockade and disturbance so abundantly that it has taken away the recognition of normalcy and harmony from the hearts and minds?” (ALSO READ: Kangana Ranaut’s Sister Rangoli Is Proud Of ‘Bharat Ki Beti’ Zaira Wasim For Ensuring Her Molester Is Behind Bars)
Her caption further read, “Hundreds of questions like these-unanswered; leaving us bewildered and frustrated, but our frustrations find no outlet. The authority doesn’t make the slightest effort to put a stop to our doubts and speculations but Stubbornly tend to go their own way to confine our existence mired in a confused, conflicted and a paralysed world. But I ask the world, what has altered your acceptance of the misery and oppression we’re being subjected to? Do not believe the unfair representation of the facts and details or the rosy hue that the media has cast on the reality of the situation. Ask questions, re-examine the biased assumptions. Ask questions. For our voices have been silenced- and for how long....none of us really know!”
After completing the shoot of The Sky Is Pink with Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar, Zaira had announced that she will not be doing movies citing religious reasons.
