Besides being a global style icon, Priyanka Chopra’s work with UNICEF as a goodwill ambassador for peace stood as inspiration for many across the world. However, her recent answer to Ayesha Malik, a Pakistani-American activist during a Beauty Con panel talk in Los Angeles has welcomed criticism. Ayesha had called Chopra a “hypocrite” for tweeting in favour of a war between Pakistan and India during the Pulwama attacks this year. To which Priyanka replied “Girl, don’t yell, we’re all here for love. You’re embarrassing yourself.”

On this note, Dr Shireen Mazari, Pakistan’s Federal Minister for Human Rights has written a letter to UNICEF to remove Priyanka Chopra as its global goodwill ambassador. In her letter to UNICEF, Mazari pointed to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Indian occupied Kashmir, saying it was a result of PM Narendra Modi’s government’s violation of all international conventions along with UN Security Council resolutions. “Unless she is removed immediately, the very idea of a UN Goodwill Ambassador for Peace becomes a mockery globally,” the minister added.
