Zaira Wasim is one of the actresses in Bollywood who often makes the headlines for her speaking her heart out on social media. However, the former actress recently sparked a controversy after she made a tweet regarding the recent locusts attacks. The Dangal actress had quoted a verse from the holy Quran and tweeted, “So We sent upon them the flood and locusts and lice and frogs and blood: Signs openly self-explained: but they were steeped in arrogance- a people given to sin -Qur’an 7:133.”

Her tweet made her the target of trolls as Zara was called out for being insensitive towards people and their loss. After being brutally trolled, the young actress went on to quit all her social media accounts including Twitter and Instagram. Now a day after Zara left social media, a section of Twitterati are seen defending the Secret Superstar actress and have trended #StandWithZaira on micro-blogging site Twitter. One of the Twitter user wrote, “#ZairaWasim What did she done now..I mean she just wrote a verse from her religious book. Please don't hate her.”

Another Twitterati called Zaira’s post as her right for freedom of speech, while one of user wrote, “if simply quoting a verse from the qur'an can get you so much hate, then so be it. i #StandWithZaira. sharing your beliefs on your personal social media space shouldn't be something problematic. #StandWithZairaWasim.” “This is a verse of quran chapter 7:133. I don't understand what's wrong if we share this. Why people are not allowing to share or quote from a holy book. #ZairaWasim #standwithzairawasim,” wrote another Twitter user.

the verse is about Pharaoh of Egypt but everything that happened for that verse talked about is happening again all over the world. It's just scary times we're living.

she needs to be called out because it is a verse from Exodus. It says God's wrath will visit the infidels as the 10 plagues of Egypt. So what does that mean? That the locust infestation is a just punishment? Please use all your collective brains. This is not freedom of speech. Are you justifying the locust attack? So next time any mishap happens, we can all quote our religious books-hindus, muslims, christians...and say God ordained it, instead of expressing grief or being quiet. Is this empathy? Is this humanity?

On the one hand, you live in a 'democracy' and should have free speech. On the other hand you want to oppress others right to exercise that free speech

Just because others don't necessarily believe in your preferred path to the divine there's no need to drag up God's curses ,wrath and the plagues of Egypt as punishment for that. If she doesn't want to be in the limelight ,why in heaven's name is she tweeting ?
