A few days back, Indian actress Sara Khan gave a pretty strong statement against the ‘burqa’.
She asked why only women have to cover themselves, and why men don’t have to cover their eyes.
A lot of people trolled the actress for her comments, calling into question her Islam and just generally trolling her.
The actress took to Twitter to apologize for her comments.
In her short video, she apologizes to all Muslims for her remarks and admits that maybe she used inappropriate language. She also says that she is nobody to pass comment on religion and religious matters.
Apologies 🙏🙏 to all my Muslim friends
May allah forgive me for what I said pic.twitter.com/Wg4czlenWi

People were not fully accepting of her apology
Khuda sy mafi mango insano sy nai.

There was also the objection to the fact that she was getting her hair done while saying ‘sorry’
Apologizing while some one is doing her hair..is she a joke or what..real drama queen..im going to stop following her…a wanna be heroine..

There was a lot of redirection to God
Kuch bol Ne Se Pehle socha bhi Karo maafi mangna Hai Toh Khuda Se Mango..

Some comments were REALLY extreme

While people were hating, some were calling for a ban on her serials
Dear Sara,You defamed Islam for your album popularity.I urge people not see in daily serials because wa are Saale Mard hain.

People called her out for doing all this as a publicity stunt
Ensure you don't demean a religion for publicity. You are only in demand till your beauty sustains, once you grow old & grey with wrinkles ppl would stick to your inner truth not for your beauty and arrogance. Stooping low to get brownie points & few followers will vanish soon.

There were warnings being sent out to her too
Kabi dobara Aisa na krna Sara…aapki life kuch b kro…but kisi ke emotion Ko hurt krna aapka ritghs ni

And she was also reminded of the inevitability of her death
Not surprising that people used that angle with her
"O son/daughter of Adam, place your foot on the Earth and realise that it will soon be your grave." – Hasan Al-Basri
// "No matter how pretty our face is, we will still be the food of worms. So we need to set aside our arrogance and remember our grave."

Shockingly, there were some people who were nice

Among the hate, there was support, which was really nice to see
