Zaira Wasim made it to the headlines once again as she bore her heart out on social media, this time, for her tweet about the locust attack and for quoting the hold Quran. She went on to write on Twitter, “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.” Soon enough, she received a lot of hate and was trolled for the same, enough to quite all the social media accounts.

However, she is back at it and this time, she has gone on to reply to a Canadian journalist, who mentioned how she is mocking her own countrymen of being the victim of Allah's wrath. In reply to the tweet, she clarified her stance and wrote how she has been taken out of context. She wrote, “While I too agree making claims like `this is wrath or a curse’ when the world is going through so much is a really insensitive one, I wish to also emphasise that making a claim on our own as big as It’s a wrath or curse of Allah upon any land* is a statement one is making on behalf of Allah, which is actually a religiously irresponsible one and a sin and also a claim I never made, let alone mock anyone."

She further added, “My tweet was completely taken out of context and blown out of proportion and none of the opinions, whether good or bad, define the reality of my intentions, for that is between me and My Rabb, and something which I’m not even going to explain, for I’m only accountable to Allah and not His creation. The world is going through a tough time and a lot of hatred and bigotry already, the least we could do is not add more to it." She also went on to clarify how she is not an actress anymore.

Well tbh I don't see anything wrong with the tweet. Obviously she's a kid and so we can argue doesn't have much of an understanding of things. But all the people in the comment section trying to take a higher ground by putting down religion apparently don't know much about how science works and has developed over the years either. It is obvious that religion has been wrong at a lot, a lot of places in history but so has science. Throwing everything about a religion and all the religions under the bus because of that is like throwing science under the bus because earlier scientists believed that there is ether in space. Darwin, Planck and even Einstein were religious. Science today is researching in a very very particular way(materialistic) which leaves a whole universe of things it cannot research because of the way scientists have a way of doing things. These other things were researched by people who were into religion and spirituality. Watch Jordan Peterson's(a very famous Canadian psychologist) lectures on Bible and how it is essentially a book on human psychology plus a whole lot more things. Just keep your minds open people...you can't just swing all the way to the other side because in the last few centuries religion has taken a wrong path. It's like becoming a man hating feminazi instead of a feminist.

Hit her over the head with a science book! We have enough old radicals effing up the culture of India. Too depressing to watch brainwashed youth go down the same path.

Stop talking about this brainwashed little brat. I'll tell you what, she wants the fame, but none of the work, because fame will help her not only live cushy lifestyle but also brainwash more kids with religious BS. She's not an actress anymore, stop treating her like one. The End.

When you live on earth all your actions and words very much affect human beings on this very earth . Be responsible on what you say and how you say it. She only says she doesn't want to be a celebrity , but seems unable to keep off attention ,unless someone is putting her up to it.

She doesnt consider her self Indian, which you can understand from her current 'any land' tweet, or earlier when she said what is happenign in kashmir.A lot of muslims, particularly the orthodox type, cant live with any other religion apart from their own religion.

She just spoke about how human arrogance is punished by the gods . They are not her thoughts. She is simply quoting from some book . Must everything be a religious fight ?

She is talking about religious bigotry? I am a Kashmiri Pandit and my grandparents and extended family had to flee overnight because the muslim majority decided to colour the state in one colour. That locust tweet has been going around in Muslim WhatsApp circles. It wasn't taken out of context.

This woman is a total Fake, its a shame that she is not using her brain and education for good in the world, Education did nothing to her, this is what happens when people blindly follow religion. She is a great example.. May god give her some brain to see what is good and bad in life.
