Shireen Mazari wants Priyanka Chopra removed as UN ambassador

August 13, 2019
 

Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari wants the UNICEF to take action against Indian actor Priyanka Chopra and remove her as its peace ambassador over her warmongering stance.

Mazari took to Twitter on Monday and stated, “UNICEF should really be more careful [about who] it appoints to these honorary positions.”

 

Bollywood actor Priyanka is currently under hot water after she was called out by a Pakistani girl, named Ayesha Malik, for her hypocrisy when she glorified war. The girl called her out at Beautycon event held recently.

“You are a UNICEF ambassador for peace and you’re encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan. There’s no winner in this,” said the woman who called her out in the video. “As a Pakistani, millions of people like me have supported you in your business of Bollywood and you wanted nuclear war.”

Priyanka trivialised the question and told the woman “don’t yell girl, don’t embarrass yourself”. It seems Priyanka doesn’t know the difference between patriotism and warmongering.

A video shows that instead of responding to the woman’s statements, Priyanka said ‘I have Pakistani friends’.

 

She proceeded to patronisingly say she was “patriotic” and that she was sorry if that offended anyone.

In February, Priyanka had tweeted ‘Jai Hind’, which is the equivalent of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’, after India claimed to have conducted airstrikes in Pakistan. She was criticised for praising the Indian Army at a time when people were calling for peace between the neighbouring countries.

The tensions between the two countries have once again flared up following New Delhi’s move to downgrade and reorganise the region of Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan decried the move as illegal and announced to downgrade diplomatic ties with India and suspended bilateral trade.
