The model took to Instagram to call attention to this hypocrisy, first pointing out the truths that surround us.
“Covid it at its peak. Cricket leagues are getting cancelled, countries in the Subcontinent are going into lockdown and strict curfews are imposed on peoples everywhere — we are well in the middle of this horrendous and treacherous third wave,” she wrote
She then urged all to adhere to the SOPs, wear a mask at all times, and hang on to hope, placing her faith in the system and authorities to guide us through these trying times.
“It means you live in a house large enough to practice it. Hand washing is a privilege too. It means you have access to water. Hand sanitisers are a privilege. It means you have the money to buy them,” she then added
She quickly used this opportunity to call attention to problematic Ramazan transmissions.
“They do not follow protocols and are filmed on sets where crews as large as 60 to 70 people are not quarantined and don’t operate inside a bio secure environment. This is a blatant breach of government policy, and just shows our inherent insensitivity to the situation,” she protested
“Rather, they seem hellbent on ridiculing and insulting human beings in the name of entertainment and profit. It’s crass, rude, and has zero respect for human dignity. I’m sorry but this frustrates me a lot!” she added
“There was no better time to do it in Ramazan, but no, how would people win a Corolla then?” she sighed,
“Spend Eid while practising social distancing, recognize your privilege and try to see through the lies we consume through the magic box!” she said.
