Ever since a Pakistani girl called out Bollywood’s Priyanka Chopra for encouraging war between Pakistan and India, calls for her removal as the UN Goodwill ambassador have gone much stronger. Not just Pakistanis, but people around the world have also urged UNICEF to strip her off this prestigious position. Now, Pakistan’s Minister for Human Rights, Shireen Mazari has also written to the head of the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) to remove Priyanka Chopra as the UNICEF Goodwill ambassador.
The Human Rights Minister in her letter said that “ the recent crisis in Kashmir is a result of Modi’s Government violation of all international convention.”
Shireen Mazari also pointed out Indian forces use of brutal violence against women and children in Indian occupied Kashmir.
“The Indian occupation forces have also intensified their campaign of using pellet guns against women and children as well as violence and abuse of women in IoK,” she wrote.
Furthermore, Miss Mazari in her letter to the UNICEF head mentioned how Priyanka Chopra publicly endorsed the Indian government’s war threats against Pakistan.

Shireen Mazari asked UNICEF to reconsider it’s decision of appointing Priyanka Chopra as their Goodwill Ambassador.
The Human Rights Minister stated that unless Priyanka Chopra is removed as the Goodwill ambassador “the very idea of a UN Goodwill Ambassador for Peace becomes a mockery globally,” she concluded.
