Pakistani singer Rabi Peerzada targets Mehwish Hayat after later denies talking on Kashmir

Mehwish Hayat's comment enraged Pakistani voices, with a minister writing to the United Nations asking that Priyanka Chopra be removed as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Mehwish Hayat was among Ms Chopra's critics, writing in an opinion piece for CNN, "This is where Priyanka Chopra and others have made a mistake: by lending their name to racism dressed up as patriotism, they have done us all a disservice." Ms Hayat also accused Bollywood of "fuelling hate an Islamophobia." Whether or not she would have been quite so enthusiastic about posting a picture from the US Open had Priyanka Chopra attended is anybody's guess - the comments on Mehwish Hayat's post are mindful of and acknowledge the irony.
