Earlier today, Dangal fame actress Zaira Wasim announced that she would no longer be continuing her career as an actor. The actress said it was interfering with her Islamic faith and religion. She further said that 5 years ago she took a decision that changed her life and now she’s taking one that will change it again.
This sudden decision of Zaira Wasim has left everyone in shock, and the netizens took to Twitter to express their opinion on the same. While some are saying that it is a good decision and who are we to comment on her choices; others are of the view that the reasons that she gave are are illogical.
Twiiter has been trending with #ZairaWasim ever since the news came out.
#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.— Arfa Khanum Sherwani (@khanumarfa) June 30, 2019
That did not make Nusrat immoral as this does not make Zaira more moral.
*Freedom to choose is supreme*

Oh My Goosebumps! Bollywood’s talented actress Zaria Wasim now wants to quit acting because she thinks her acting career almost destroyed her faith in Allah. What a moronic decision! So many talents in Muslim community are forced to go under the darkness of the burqa.— taslima nasreen (@taslimanasreen) June 30, 2019

1 nation , 1 religion and 2 perspectives.
One showed regressiveness of her community ,beliefs n thoughts
And the other, though from the same community, is being praised for living the true Indian spirit without 'Damaging her relationship with Allah' pic.twitter.com/oBGy4XPg58
While everyone understands that her career choices are a personal thing, it becomes a point of conversation when religion is brought into it. What are your thoughts on the same?
