Recently, Zaira Wasim tweeted a quote from the Quran while talking about the locust attacks. She wrote, “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,” for which she faced a backlash from netizens. Many felt that she was saying through her tweet that the attack is God’s way of expressing anger. After facing flak on social media, Zaira deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts.
