“Dangal” famed Zaira Wasim has written an emotional note on social media talking about the pain of Kashmir people. She says “Kashmir continues to suffer”.
Zaira on Monday night shared a photograph of a flower and wrote a long emotional post on Instagram.
She wrote: “Kashmir continues to suffer and see-saw between hope and frustration? There’s a false and uneasy semblance of calmness in place of escalating despair and sorrow? Kashmiris continue to exist and suffer in a world where it is so easy to place restrictions on our liberty.”
“Why do we have to live in a world where our lives and wills are controlled, dictated and bent? Why is it so easy to have our voices silenced? Why is it so easy to curtail our freedom of expression? Why aren’t we ever allowed to voice our opinions, let alone our disapprovals, to decisions that are made contrary to our wishes? Why is it that instead of trying to see the cause of our view, our view is just condemned ruthfully?
“What is so easy to curb our voices so severely? Why can we not live simple lives without always having to wrestle and remind the world of our existence? Why is that life of a Kashmiri is just about experiencing a lifetime of crisis, blockade, and disturbance so abundantly that it has taken away the recognition of normalcy and harmony from the hearts and minds?”
While criticizing the authorities, she said: “Hundreds of questions like these — unanswered; leaving us bewildered and frustrated, but our frustrations find no outlet. The authority doesn’t make the slightest effort to put a stop to our doubts and speculations, but stubbornly tend to go their own way to confine our existence mired in a confused, conflicted and a paralyzed world.”
The 19-year-old smallest former actress who belongs to Srinagar added: “But I ask the world, what has altered your acceptance of the misery and oppression we’re being subjected to? Do not believe the unfair representation of the facts and details or the rosy hue that the media has cast on the reality of the situation. Ask questions, re-examine the biased assumptions. Ask questions. For our voices have been silenced — and for how long….none of us really know!”
Last year only in June, Zaira said goodbye to her film career and she held her relationship with her religion was threatened. She provided all the details in the post on her Facebook page, the 18-year-old former actress critics religious reasons for her decision to quit her promising career in the Bollywood.
