Zaira Wasim had decided do quit Bollywood last year as she had stated that it was coming in the way of her religion. The actress has made headlines for days due to her decision. She had also received a lot of backlash on social media for her decision. And now she is back in the news again as wrestler Babita Phogat said in a statement that she is not Zaira who will be intimidated by threats and sit at home. Babita called herself a true Hindustani and she said she will continue to say what she believes in.

Champion wrestler and Bhartiya Janta Party leader Babita Phogat has been in the news ever since she said that she will express her views openly and won’t back down like Zaira. Babita had pointed at a specific community and accused them as the reason for the spike in Coronavirus cases.

Now, Zaira in her recent post took an indirect dig at Babita without mentioning her name, as she wrote, “While I acknowledge with humility all the love people shower me with. I cannot emphasise enough how the praise that comes my way isn’t gratifying at all for me and how big of a test it is for me and how dangerous it is for my Iman. I’m not as righteous as I might lead many to believe.”

She further added, “Instead, I urge everyone to not praise me in any manner but pray that Allah overlooks my shortcomings-which are too many to count, and fills the void in my heart with the light of His Mercy, Taqwa and increases me in Iman, rectifies my intentions and grants me knowledge that is beneficial and a heart and tongue that remembers Him at all times and turns to Him often in repentance, and allow me to perform righteous deeds only for His sake, allow me to remain steadfast and cause me to live and die as a Muslim (wholly submitting to Him) Jazakum Allahu Khayran.”

Zaira has won a National Award for Best Supporting Actress, and she was last seen in ‘The Sky is Pink’ that also starred Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar.
