Delhi: Coming out in favour of Dangal star Zaira Wasim, a 16-year-old Kashmiri who was trolled by a few for meeting Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said that everyone must stand by her side.
“Shows irony of ultra liberals who vehemently came out together to speak against flimsy premise of growing intolerance,” Information and Broadcasting Minister said.
“Sense of great achievement that children from J&K are coming into the mainstream and are showcasing their talent. All must stand up by her side, be united in showing her support.We must encourage talent and not muzzle it under frivolous controversies,” he added, as per ANI.
Naidu went on to say, “Zaira Wasim episode shows pseudo liberals react to different situations, adopt double standards. What is her fault? Zaira Wasim from J&K has shown the path, one should really feel proud and appreciate her, rather than trying to be verbally violent.”
