After the recent events in Indian occupied Kashmir, lots of national and international celebrities have raised their concerns against the tyranny of Indian forces. Amidst all the tension Twitterati didn’t forget to call out the Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai for her silence over Indian atrocities in Kashmir.
Renowned Pakistani actress Veena Malik also joined Twitterati in raising their concerns regarding Malala Yousafzai’s silence. In a tweet, where she tagged the Nobel laureate, Veena Malik questioned Malala Yousafzai’s awareness regarding the tense situation in Kashmir.
The “Ye Dil Apka Huwa” star was also surprised at the fact that Malala Yousafzai had still not uttered a single word in regard to the current situation between the two nuclear states of Pakistan and India.
She also announced to unfollow her on the biggest microblogging site.

Malala finally took to Twitter to voice her support to the Kashmiri people. Malala’s response came three days after India’s controversial move of scrapping Article 370 of its constitution.

Malala Yousafzai has been facing backlash for the content of her tweet. People have still been calling out her for not clearly mentioning the Indian atrocities in Kashmir. Twitterati are of the opinion that since she holds an influential status in the western world, Malala should have been more vocal about the conflict.
