Shireen Mazari, the Pakistani Human Rights Minister has called on Unicef for Priyanka Chopra Jonas to be removed as the UN Goodwill Ambassador for cheering for the Indian Army.
In a tweet by Mazari, she said, “@UNICEF needs to remove Priyanka Chopra as its ambassador immediately in the wake of her support for Indian mly (military) and rogue Modi govt. Otherwise it makes a mockery of such appointments. UNICEF should really be more careful on whom it appoints to these honorary positions.”
Chopra Jonas has been embroiled in controversy after expressing her support for the Indian military. Recently, she was branded a “hypocrite” and “encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan” by a Pakistani girl Ayesha Malik at a Los Angeles event.
She said, “You are a UNICEF ambassador for peace and you’re encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan. There’s no winner in this… As a Pakistani, millions of people like me have supported you in your business of Bollywood and you wanted nuclear war.”
Responding to this, Chopra Jonas said, “I have many, many friends from Pakistan and I am from India. War is not something I’m really fond of but I am patriotic, so I’m sorry if I hurt sentiments of people who do love me and have loved me. But I think that all of us have a, sort of, middle ground that we all have to walk. Just like you probably do as well. The way that you came at me right now… girl, don’t yell. We’re all here for love.”
