Former Bollywood actress Zaira Wasim has deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts after being heavily trolled for quoting from the Quran while talking about locust attacks.

“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,” Zaira had tweeted.

Soon, she started receiving hateful comments from netizens who interpreted her post as a justification of the locust attacks. They felt that Zaira was suggesting that the incident is God’s way of expressing wrath.

Shortly after being deluged with such comments, Zaira Wasim deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts.

However, a section of netizens continued to attack Zaira on her Facebook page, where she put up the same post.

Commenting on the post, a user wrote: “Lady you must have taken into account of those people of JK, Kerala and elsewhere who are also suffering from the virus. Moreover the crops which are damaged by locust had no name as to who will consume them. In this hours of crisis please post something which is positive and reflects your education.”

Another user shared: “So according to you,with all due respect every year on the same time period,allah send locust to India to destroy the crops of poor farmers who are not even involve in the industrial rise,who don’t use vehicle to destroy the nature,nd allah send locust only to harm the poor farmers nd not the rich one who actually destroy nature.” “So those farmers who lost there fields of crops and will probably go into debt and may also commit suicide, those farmers who feed the nation, who feed you and every one, are sinners?” asked yet another user.

However, there were a few on social media who felt Zaira had done nothing wrong.

“Quoting Quranic Verse is not a crime… Why is every Indian abusing @ZairaWasimmm. She didn’t mention any particular nation or religion. I request everyone please stand with #ZairaWasim. She needs our support. #ISupportZairaWasim,” goes a tweet. (IANS)

  1. okay..
    so if you,re guessing what is Locust and how have they attacked India then i will take this immense pleasure to enlighten you
    Locust are short-horned Grasshoppers which belong to the family of Acrididae. These migratory pests can adapt themselves (change their behaviour and habits) under certain circumstances. Their lifespan is 90 days. And Swarm means dense or large groups of insects.
    After Pakistan, desert locusts entered India through Rajasthan on April 11, 2020. Reports stated that normally, with the arrival of monsoons, locust swarms enter India during the month of June-July but this year it entered the country earlier than expected and in huge amounts.

    Every year around 10 Locust attacks are seen in India. But this year it seems, India will have to battle with the worst locust attack in 27 years.

    Administrations from the respective districts under locust attack have started taking precautionary measures to save the crops and vegetation and tackle the locust attack. Locust Warning Organisation (LWO) has ordered the states to sprinkle the chemicals (generally pesticides) in the areas where locust attack can be predicted.

  2. Dairy was an innocent when she agreed filmistan of Bollywood.
    When film Daniel was released, dairy was most appreciate by Bollywood.
    A line of producers come to her residency for booking as heroin in there coming films, but she avoided answering I will go to my home first and after return I will decide about future. When she reached home her parents, brothers & other relatives & friends ignore her saying a kashmiri Muslim girl & filmistan have no concern, but you decided to go. Now we have no concern with you, go back & understand you have no relationship, no parents, brother, sister etc. Simply leave back you have died for we.
    Zaira gets tense& finally returned back to Bollywood. During traveling to Mumbai some unknown persons humiliated her in aeroplane. In Mumbai she contacted concern police station & lodged a complaint against the persons who misbehaved her in plane, police doesn’t investigate the persons because of some Royal Families. Zaira was already tense & now more & can’t decide anything.
    During some days she feels something negative. She call her production company and request for help, but every one ignored. Finally AmirKhan
    contacted her & take her to his own residence. He told her every thing about Bollywood controversy against her back of Muslim that also kashmiri. Next day she returned kashmir.
    Now problem is she is homeless. Some genius persons advised her how your family & others gets motivate, She follow the advice & her parents can’t
    tolerate her problems & was allowed to her home. Nowadays she is related with her religion & every one regards her well.
    No one is perfect , every one gets problematic once in life. We are proud
    of zaira who left her multi millionaire life….. God will care you & makes you more successful.
