Mehwish Hayat Misquotes Allama Iqbal, Gets Trolled for It

We all make mistakes right?

Mehwish Hayat

The last thing you would expect from Mehwish Hayat is to misquote Pakistan’s national poet. The actress, who prides herself on being a patriot, made a blunder on her Twitter account recently. Of course, she’s as human as the rest of us.

The Internet didn’t take to well to this slip-up and now she’s being trolled. The Load Wedding actress shared an inspirational poem and attributed it to Pakistan’s national poet Allama Iqbal.

One catch though, the poem was actually Muhammad Ismail’s creation.

People who recognized the slip-up, immediately pointed it out. The Tamgha-e-Imtiaz recipient was bashed for not knowing her Urdu poets. Some even said that she was misquoting the national poet.

Then there was the unsolicited advice.

This wouldn’t be the first time an actor has been trolled for misquoting a famous figure. Shaan Shahid was trolled far more brutally for wrongly attributing a quote to the Muslim emperor Salahuddin Ayoubi.

Mehwish Hayat later accepted the mistake but that didn’t keep the trolls from coming after her.
