The hypocrisy of several Pakistanis and certain Indian liberals who support them has now come out in the open. Recently, Pakistani actress Mahira Khan was spotted with Indian actor Ranbir Khan in New York, when the duo had come out for a “smoke break”.
Hate messages from radical Pakistanis
The image of the two dragging on cigarettes got the paparazzi going crazy. However, a few fringe elements were quite particular to make sure that they impose their religion on Mahira instead of letting herself be as she wanted to be. Several radical Pakistanis slut shamed Mahira.
She started receiving hate messages on her social media accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Her Facebook feed is now filled with hate comments from Pakistanis who are trying to coerce her to follow their third world agenda.
“This is the real face of actresses who want work in showbiz industry. They get fucked by numerous producers, actors, director and many more responsible persons. They are prostitutes who sell their body to get money,” said one comment from Adnan Qaisar on Mahira’s Facebook page.
Another person slyly issues a death threat to Mahira. “Please forgive her. Her life could be in danger. She should apologise and get away with it. She is a kind girl. She has just erred,” said one Afshan Farooqui on one of her images on Facebook.
Here are some of the other hate comments Mahira Khan has been receiving:
Shocking silence from Indian liberals
Even as this incident shook the internet, the Indian liberals who are always advocating free speech, feminism and freedom for women seemed to be conveniently missing. This incident has made two things quite clear – firstly the hypocrisy of the Indian liberals who seem to outraged, only selectively, and secondly, the radical nature of the common Pakistani citizens which is making life hell for their women.
