Zaira Wasim again under the scanner
Quoting the verse from the Quran she wrote, “So We sent upon them the flood and locusts and lice and frogs and blood: Signs openly self-explained: but they were steeped in arrogance- a people given to sin -Qur’an 7:133 (sic).”
As per many users on twitter who commented on her post, she was trying to justify the recent locust attack in India by comparing them with the verse from the Quran. She wanted to tell that the environmental problem that has arisen because of the locust attacks is a divine act which does not go well with the intellectual masses.
Following the trolling of the many users, she deleted both her Twitter and Instagram accounts. at once.
While some criticized her heavily others thought she had been misunderstood. Some thought that she should leave the social platform because she does not know what she is tweeting.
However, this is not the first time that the netizens had trolled her for her social media posts. Last Year she received a lot of negative comments from her followers on twitter following which she asked her followers to show a little empathy towards her.
The Locust Attack in India
The Locust attack has affected large agricultural parts of India, Pakistan, Iran, Bangladesh, and even easter parts of Africa as well. With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic which has already devasted human life, there’s another reason to worry about now for the farmers mostly.
In 2020, India has received all kinds of attacks including earthquakes and cyclone Amphan which recently hit the West Bengal and Odisha coastal areas. Now the locust attack is another significant issue that needs to be looked after. The insects are dangerous to crops and a small group of them can destroy food meant for around 35,000 peoples.
There are reportedly a million locusts that have attacked the country with more coming after them. This will no doubt affect the agricultural economy heavily.
