How Islamists Forced Dangal Actress Zaira Wasim To Apologize For No Fault Of Hers

Published on 16 January, 2017 at 7:49 pm By

Zaira Wasim, who garnered much appreciation for her exceptional performance in 2016’s biggest blockbuster ‘Dangal’, is making headlines today with her sensational Facebook Post.

The post, which has now been deleted, was published on her verified Facebook account and also via her Twitter handle. It is an apology for being deemed as a “role model for Kashmiri youth”, her “embarrassment for what she’s doing” and whom she’s been meeting recently.

 

The post is not just bewildering but also gives rise to many possibilities behind Zaira apologising.

Four days back, Zaira Wasim was in the news for her meeting with J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti. She received some flak for the same. Considering the sensitive political situation of Kashmir, this apology beginning with “I know that many people have been offended and displeased by my recent actions or by the people I have recently met” appears to be aimed at this meeting.

 

Omar Abdullah, ex-Chief Minister of J&K and an Opposition leader, has his own grudges against the CM for the unrest in the Valley ever since Burhan Wani was killed. Yet he, too, felt distasteful for this alleged “forced” apology by 16-year-old Zara.

However, another perspective highlights the role of Separatists in this public apology.

Was she hounded by the Separatists or their supporters for her participation in Bollywood (or Indian cinema) or her meeting with Mufti, the chief of PDP?

The Separatists have been opposing the resettlement of Kashmiri Pandits in the state according to the state government plan, which has, in fact, been one of the prime objectives of the BJP – an ally of the PDP in the government.

Now a screenshot of comment thread on Facebook re-emphasises that probably the Islamists are not very pleased with her work in the film industry.

 

 

But many prominent names on Twitter came out in support of her. #ZairaWasim is currently the trending topic for the day.

 

Wrestler Geeta Phogat, whose younger version Zaira played in the movie, also gave a statement taking a stand on the issue.

 


Meanwhile, in a second post (now deleted) Zaira brushed off all the speculations calling her post to be not as significant as it is being made out.

While we fail to understand the real reason behind her apology, it appears that the young girl came under pressure from Islamists and those who hate Mehbooba Mufti. Whatever may be the case, it’s unfair to hound a teenager for merely meeting a state CM or acting in the film industry and making a name for herself.
