Indian fans of the Bollywood star didn’t seem to like the latest post of Rakhi and they strongly reacted to it:
After receiving many hate comments, Rakhi had clarified in a video that she was playing a Pakistani girl in Dhara 370. She also said that all citizens of Pakistan were not bad and she really respected them.
“Main logon ko yeh batana chahti hoon ki main ek Pakistani ladki dikhayi gayi hoon. Pakistan ke logon ke seene mein bhi dil hota hai. Bohot pyaare hote hai. Sab bure nahi hote hai. Kuch log jo jihad karwate hai bachchon se, jo apne hi desh, mulk aur kaum ke khilaaf hote hai, jo Allah ke khilaaf bhi hote hai, jo human bomb banate hai… Main Pakistan ki bohot respect karti hoon, unke logon ki respect karti hoon,” she said.
“Kuch log hai jo Kashmiriyon ko, Hindustaniyon ko border paar karwate hai, unki madad karte hai, kyunki woh bohot nek aur Allah ke bande hai. Main unki bohot izzat karti hoon aur sab bure nahi hote. Har desh mein koi na koi caste mein koi bura toh hota hi hai, jo Allah ke khilaaf aur ishwar ke khilaaf jaata hai,” the actress added.
