After Indian Home Minister Amit Shah announced on Monday that Article 370 stands revoked from the Indian constitution, several film stars took to social media to react on the historic political development in the country. Now, in her latest tweet, Zaira Wasim, who recently quit the industry, reacted to the tensed situation in the Valley. Zaira tweeted before the government’s decision of scrapping Article 370 and wrote “This too shall pass! #Kashmir” (sic) on Twitter.
Zaira’s tweet comes a month after she announced that she would not be associated with anything related to the Indian film industry since she feels that working in the movies is threatening her relationship with her religion. In a detailed post on Instagram, she mentioned that she fits in the industry but she feels she doesn’t belong here. Zaira’s decision of quitting the film industry attracted polarised opinions. While some supported the former actor for exercising her right to make decisions for herself, some criticised her for disrespecting her profession and talking immaturely.
