Following that, Zaira has removed her pictures from the Instagram account. ‘Dangal’ Star Zaira Wasim Quits Bollywood Because of Islam! Mixed Reactions on Twitter from the people across the world.
Zaira touched the stardom overnight after her incredible performance in Dangal and Secret Superstar. She received the most prestigious ‘National Award’ for her stellar performance in Dangal. Kashmiri girl also received a Filmfare Award and Special Award for Children.
Dangal Star in her Long Instagram Post said “Five years ago I made a decision that changed my life forever. As I stepped my foot in Bollywood, it opened doors of massive popularity for me. I started to become the prime candidate for public attention. I was projected as the gospel of the idea of success and was often identified as a role model for the youth.”
Zaira said that she is not happy with her identity as an actress. “As I complete 5 years today, I want to confess that I am not truly happy with this identity, that is, my line of work. For a very long time now it has felt like I have struggled to become someone else.”
“As I had just started to explore and make sense of the things to which I dedicated my time. it was only for me to realize that though I may fit here perfectly, I do not belong here”.
“This field indeed brought a lot of love, support, and applause my way. But what it also did was to lead me to a path of ignorance. I silently and unconsciously transitioned out of ‘Imaan’. While I continued to work in an environment that consistently interfered with my Imaan. My relationship with my religion was threatened”.

She said that she has lost all Barakah(Blessings) while passing through this passage which once considered to be okay!. “Barakat is a word whose meaning isn’t just confined to happiness, quantity or blessing, it also focuses on the idea of stability, which is something I struggled with extensively.
“I was constantly battling with my soul to reconcile my thoughts and instincts. I failed miserably to fix a static picture of my Imaan. No matter how hard I tried to wrestle to firm my decision, I ended up being the same person with a motive that one day I will change and I will change soon.”
“I began to heavily rely upon Allah’s mercy for my help and guidance. I discovered my lack of knowledge of the basic fundamentals of my religion. How my inability to reinforce a change earlier was a result of confusing my heart’s contentment and well being with strengthening and satisfying my own (shallow and worldly) desires.”

Double-Faced Bigots need to Stop Bashing Zaira for her Own Choice of Path.
Just imagine, a Hindu actress quitting films citing religious reasons. These leftists and pseudo-feminists will go bonkers, call Hinduism a primitive faith, shame her for succumbing to Brahmin pressure. The same double-faced bigots are hailing Zaira Wasim’s regressive decision.

Freedom to Choose is Supreme, so let her decide her path for God’s sake.
#ZairaWasim ‘s decision to dissociate with film industry (‘because it interferes with her faith’) should be understood and respected as much as Nusrat Jahan’s Sindoor-Bindi.
That did not make Nusrat immoral as this does not make Zaira more moral.
*Freedom to choose is supreme*

Zaira Wasim’s decision should be respected just like Nusrat Jahan’s decision of Sindoor.
So Nusrat Jahan wears sindoor, it's her choice.
Zaira Wasim quits films and it's not her choice? Oh no it's Islam again?

Vinod Khanna became a Monk wasn’t regressive but Zaira’s decision is. WOW
Vinod Khanna a BJP MP quitting Bollywood to become a monk is a great leap into spirituality, but Zaira Wasim quitting Bollywood is regressive. Wow.

These Ignorant Fools are now asking Khans to leave the Industry as well.
The muslims supporting her must ask khans of Bollywood to quit as well
Islam has different rules for men and women?? 👏👏👏

Zaira Wasim's letter reveals her radicalisation over the years. Safe to assume that Vikas Sachdeva was a victim of her journey into radicalisation. Her hysteric response now has a clearer context.
