New Delhi, Jan 19, 2017:  The Dangal star Zaira Wasim, a sixteen-year-old Kashmiri girl was trolled for meeting J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti. Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu today came to the defense of her.

Venkaiah wondered why “ultra liberals” are silent on the issue. “Why did she have to tender an apology for meeting the CM of her own state? Why is everyone silent now? Where are the so-called ultra liberals now?” Naidu, who holds the portfolio of Information and Broadcasting, questioned, mentioned PTI.

While addressing a function of Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) here the Urban Development Minister came up with this issue.

The incident, according to him clearly shows the irony of the pseudo liberals who vehemently came out to speak against the growing “intolerance” earlier, Naidu urged the people to stand up by her side. The trolling began when Zaira’s picture came up with Mehbooba. She featured as a young Geeta Phogat in the recently released Bollywood movie Dangal.

It is a great achievement, said Naidu that children from Jammu and Kashmir are coming into the mainstream and are showcasing their talent and inspiring thousands of other youngsters. “Zaira’s episode shows how pseudo liberals react to different situations, adopt different standards. What is wrong committed by this young talented artist from Jammu and Kashimir?” he said.

The minister also said, she has shown the path and one should feel proud and appreciate her than trying to be verbally violent. Commenting on the controversy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi replacing Mahatma Gandhi in the 2017 calendar and diary of Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), Naidu said “creating unnecessary” issues by certain people has become a routine. Venkaiah also said “What is the issue, I don’t understand? PM Modi has been promoting Khadi from day one. He is appealing to the people to use khadi and its sales has increased over 30 per cent”.

Commenting on those who are criticizing the issue, he said it is the very same people who have never followed the Father of the Nation. “There was no photo of Gandhiji for 5 years during the Congress regime but they had no objection at that time,” he said.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday questioned the international community’s “silence” on the Kashmir situation and warned that “if ethnic cleansing of Muslims takes place in the region, there would be severe repercussions”.

Pakistan observed India’s Independence Day on Thursday as “Black Day” amid heightened tensions between the two neighbours following New Delhi’s move to scrap Article 370 granting special status to Jammu and Kashmir.

“In Indian-Occupied Kashmir, 12 days of curfew, presence of extra troops in an already heavily militarised occupied territory… complete communication blackout — with the example of (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi’s earlier ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Gujarat,” the cricketer-turned-politician wrote on Twitter.

“Will (the) world silently witness another Srebrenica-type massacre and ethnic cleansing of Muslims in IoK,” he asked. “I want to warn the international community that if it allows this to happen, it will have severe repercussions and reactions in the Muslim world, setting off radicalisation and cycles of violence.”

Addressing a special session of the AJK Legislative Assembly in Muzaffarabad, Khan had said that any “miscalculation” on the part of New Delhi would elicit a “tit-for-tat” response from Islamabad.

“The Pakistan Army is battle-hardened and it is fully ready to respond to any violation by India. The entire nation is ready and stands alongside its armed forces,” Khan had said. (IANS)
