Comedian Zaid Ali has thick, patriotic blood flowing through his jazbaati veins. The Pakistani is never one to shy away from online disputes that revolve around Pakistan and is always quick to defend his country. He was present at the ICC Champions trophy final too where he met the star players of the match.
Needless to say, Zaid is a glorious pillar for representing Pakistan on international soil.
Zaid is always awaiting an opportunity to respond to negativity, online
He even chipped in on trolling Rishi Kapoor after the Indian actor’s racist rant.
If after learning English someone can as uneducated as you are.. tu phir humay urdu hi teekh hai. https://t.co/NDlzjmu3OB

And his adoration for his roots is incredibly touching
So proud to be Pakistani! ??

So when racist author Tommy Robinson posted an Islamaphobic tweet…
Islam is not programmed to co-exist with other faiths. As a minority it'll play victim, outnumber you, become majority, then subjugate you.

Pakistani Twitter accounts responded with aggressiveness
Tommy Robinson is programmed with racism, because these days it seems to sell easily. https://t.co/zlXR8nNyoT

Tommy retorted calling Pakistan a ‘terrorist state’ and ‘the worst country in the world’
& Pakistan is a terrorist state. The worst country in the world, a disgrace to humanity https://t.co/Ur8FTtDpMp
— Tommy Robinson ?? (@TRobinsonNewEra) July 9, 2017
Zaid Ali quickly answered, calling out on Tommy and turned the racist’s words on himself
Pakistan is not a terrorist state nor is it the worst country in the world. And you're a disgrace to humanity. https://t.co/t6A6UNAquL

The topic stimulated further discussion by many, who corrected the racist author and advocated how human unity is the most important factor to dwell on
Stop differentiating between countries we all are HUMANS show some humanity and be a HUMAN

While others named Western counterparts as terrorists instead
the biggest terrorists are UK and USA

Some directly addressed Tommy Robinson and called out on his factual inaccuracy
people who are involved in all this terrorism aren't even Muslims for your info Tommy Robinson they are actually non Muslims.

Can we just say, it’s people like this who remind us of things that matter
Pakistan is pure love. And no one can change that.
