Social media is a digital podium to express liberty of expression but sometimes the freedom became bane and hassle without getting both side’s intentions. TikTok star Jannat Mirza and the veteran actor Bushra Ansari’s online feud over allegedly offending the Christian sentiments are swirling over social media. Bushra Ansari has now stated how the TikTok star, Jannat Mirza should have tried to understand her stance and respect her elders instead of getting affronted. ‘Respect Your Elders Even If They Scold You for Your Mistakes’ – Bushra Ansari Schools Jannat.
What’s going on actually?
Last week, Mirza wore a pendant crucifix around her waist in some videos, offending the Christian community. As soon as she grasped the reality, she removed the clips and apologized for it. Subsequently, Mirza also uploaded a video to TikTok and Twitter explaining her stance. But it did not over yet, and took a nasty turn instead.
Even though Mirza apologized and took down the videos, the adjudicators of social media started yelling at her. The issue caught the attention of actor Bushra Ansari, who commented on one of the posts featuring her now-deleted video.
“Aik dur fitteh mun to banta hai, in jaahil stars par afsos. Na Islam ka pata na kisi or religion ka [curses are in order for these uneducated stars. They don’t know Islam nor any other religion],” she wrote.
To repudiate, Mirza then shared the actor’s comment.
“This is not okay at all! Please do not judge anyone without knowing anything Amma Jee,”

Meanwhile, Mirza’s rumored beau Umer Butt verbally abused the actor, and said,
“You will have to excuse. You have no right to put such posts”.
If that was not enough, Mirza’s sister Alishba Anjum also attacked Ansari in another video.

Posting on Instagram, Ansari penned,
“Afsos! (Sad!) For everything going around us. I just saw the picture and instantly got emotional about the disgrace [caused] to minorities. Without seeing or knowing that it was Jannat Mirza’s unintentional mistake and she had already apologized. I saw it late and just conveyed that Islam teaches us to respect other religions too. This was the point. But when I saw people’s comments that she said sorry, I instantly deleted the post. So, kids, behave yourselves. It was a confusion exactly like she did without realizing it. I’m not teaching Islam. But we have to be human and respect humanity. Young kids are going to live and enjoy this life longer than us but you have to respect your elders even if they scold you for your mistakes.”
Well.. what would you say about the feud which was twirling around inadvertent human reflexes.
