Zaira Wasim may have called it quits from the showbiz, but remains under the spotlight, thanks to her controversial tweets. A few days ago, she stirred up a controversy on Twitter after she used a verse from the holy Quran as a reference to ‘locust attack’ and related it to people’s arrogance. She was trolled for her views and had deleted her Twitter and Instagram account for a day.
In a recent tweet, Zaira shared a joke on Twitter, which received a mixed response from netizens. While some users found her tweet relatable and couldn’t help laughing, others responded with a sarcastic reply.
Zaira tweeted: "Me: Mamma I feel my hemoglobin count is low, I could be anaemic. Mother: “Bachpan se jo hamara khoon choos rahi hai woh kahan gaya?”
(Me: Me: Mamma I feel my hemoglobin count is low, I could be anaemic. Mother: You have been sucking on our blood since childhood, what happened to that?)
Soon, sarcastic responses started pouring in. A Twitter user wrote: "This is an anti-national tweet. How can you talk like this about MOTHER India. This is sedition."
"Zaira ji ALLAH or uske rasool ki batein chod kar, aap par yeh sab batein achchi nahi lagti ? Please back to deen ki baat” came another tweet.
