Nimra Ali

Social media star Nimra Ali is loved by her fans for her quick wit and engaging content. Her viral interview in the park bagged her so many compliments and love from around Pakistan that she was soon invited for an interview on national television.

Amidst all the chaos and gloom, people saw Nimra as a ray of sunshine, who could easily brighten up anyone’s mood. People soon became fans of her lively nature and were all praises for her.

However, things took a downturn recently when Nimra seemingly went on an anti-Hindu tirade on one of her interviews. In a viral clip, she was heard saying “Kashi mein saari bakriya chadh gayi, Gandhi Nehru matam manao Hindu ki maiya maar gayi.”

Her dialogue immediately sparked a conversation on social media about the increasing anti-Hindu sentiments. Pakistani Hindu activist Kapil Dev called out Nimra for her remarks as well as expressing disappointment in the anchors for laughing at her comments instead.

However, shortly after Nimra Ali took to Twitter to express her apologies for her actions and share that these aren’t her views but rather a reenactment of her favorite actress Sajal Aly in partition-based drama Aangan.

The anchors involved also apologized, blaming the speed of the situation for not catching the nature of the remarks in time.

It’s good to see Nimra immediately apologizing for her actions and so many people recognizing why such dialogues could be problematic. Mr Dev also further cautioned her to be more careful given the current climate we live in.

Religious and sectarian divides are increasing in the region and its important to call out problematic incidents. We need to educate mindsets rather than simply attack further.
