Mahira Khan just shut down a hater mocking her for working in India

On a happy picture of Mahira and her son, a commenter said, "You haven't got a beating from India yet"
26 Sep, 2016

Mahira Khan finds herself in the centre of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena controversy, as the nationalist party demands that Pakistani artistes wrap up their work in India and leave the country.

While her Bollywood debut's release is a while away, it's one of the films that MNS has threatened to bar from release due to her presence.

And now haters are coming, but Mahira seems ready to take 'em on!

One such troll left a tasteless comment on a photograph of Mahira and her son Azlan as they enjoyed a late-night sesh of power hockey.

Saami786 said, "apko india se abhi danday nahi paray", that is, "You have yet to get a beating from India", implying that her happy times are close to an end.

Mahira, though, had her reply ready: "aap ko apni ammi say parhe hotay toh iss tara ki bakwaas nahi kehte (If you'd been beaten by your mother, you'd know better than to spew such drivel)"

The commenter, who is of Pakistani origin, left a series of comments criticising her choice to work in India, but Mahira's fan club took over and shut him down.

Many fans in India left her heart-warming messages.

Suboohiii said, "Hey Mahira, such a lovely pic. So proud of you, babe. Big fan from across the border. We are all loving [Pakistani] dramas insanely. Don't react to those fools, love. Haters gonna hate anyway. You are doing it all right... [Those Muslims who criticise you for your actions need to examine their own behaviour first.] May Allāh bless you with more success throughout life."

'Enchantress' stressed that her fans from both sides of the border, should put their differences aside: "To be honest being an Indian i feel ashamed that people of our country have such a mentality. We shouldn't have any kinda ill feelings for anyone specially the people who haven't caused any kind of harm to us. They are not to blamed for anything just because of the country they reside in. I do agree that both India and Pakistan share hostile relationships but just give it a thought that whats the difference between all of us. We bleed the same colour, we have the same kind of food, we live on the same planet earth and we breathe in the same air. So please rather playing a blame game learn to respect and appreciate artists for their work and not say anything which is unacceptable and blame them for deeds of other people."

Harinder Jeet said, "So unfortunate to see people bashing each other on a beautiful mother-son photograph. Let no one's hatred affect you, Mahira. You have many admirers and your hard work and dedication to your work will keep inspiring us." :)

One should learn to give respect to women.
Sajid Ibrahim Sep 26, 2016 04:25pm
@Ashok - Yes they should, but i think this issue wasn't about being a woman. More as to why she is working in India. People should be free to work wherever the need be.

It's unfortunate that there are mean, narrow-minded people on both sides of the border. Just remember there are many more warm-hearted people as well on both sides of the border. Let's not get carried away by hatred. As Indians/Pakistanis, we should never make our mehmaans feel unwelcome.

Well done Mahira, let the uncivilized people know how to act like civilized people and not to harass your invited guests, it is unethical and immoral to humiliate your guests.
Masood Sep 26, 2016 08:41pm
She is working in India to better herself, to learn and to show her potential as an actress. Not because of monetary reasons. She was already heavily booked for her drama series and she is a multi-millionaire . Your directors and producers saw something in her to invest millions on her movies. And you midget-minded Bombay journalist, are you threatened ??

Twitter and FB and Instagram need to be banned in our nations. Or at least be made paid at 2000 dollars a year .... lol We are such idiots, don't deserve it.
Atticus from India Sep 26, 2016 09:30pm
LOL... very nice reply by her.
Janisar Sep 26, 2016 10:36pm
Fact remains they are after the money. No other justification fits. Hence the lack of respect from both sides.

@Changez_Khan she replied to a Pakistani fan.
Jawad Sep 27, 2016 06:30am
Come back to pakistan please

Mahira you have done a him a gr8 reply. Don't carried away by such comments, they are simply jealous of you. I have just one regret in my life, some time back after Humsafar, I was in Karachi and stayed at Movenpick, At the breakfast I saw you at the lobby entry and you were getting into your car, I wish i could have chased you and hugged you, my laziness is to be blamed. All the best, and I am sure many more in India and Pakistan loves you than hate,

These are the people who have dreams of Going to America and they are the ones participating in Anti-America Rallies as well. They watch Indian Movies, Indian Stars are on their Facebook Dp Yet they Spew Hate against India. We all can have Disagreement with Indian government or Any Other Govt Over some issues but in general Nobody should Treat anybody like this. Indian Public Is welcomed in Pakistan anytime and Vice versa. (regards)
Ahmad Sep 27, 2016 12:27pm
@a Exactly , I had a look on my Facebook TL and It was like a Battlefield out there. People posting literally ANYTHING to show their Hate towards each other. And It was insane to watch How these people LOVE WAR. Pathetic!!!

@Sajid Ibrahim She does not have enough work in Pakistan.
Faiza Sep 27, 2016 09:32pm
Don't agree with people hating on others like this. But I really wonder if the likes of mahira and fawad would have answers for Indians spewing hate and telling them to go back. It's easier to respond to your side of the border.
Arun-KS Sep 27, 2016 11:18pm
Mahira should be spared. She is a female and deserves Indian's respect.
D.K. PAMNANI Sep 28, 2016 10:10am
Though respect is for every woman, I urge Mahir to work in Pakistan only. Do not come to India just for making money. You do not have emotions and love for india.

@Faiza agreed
