Actress Zoya Nasir and German vlogger Christian Betzmann engagement came to an end after the latter’s insensitive comments on Pakistan and the Palestinian issue. It was Zoya who took to social media to call off her engagement.
She wrote: “It’s with a heavy heart I’m announcing that Christian Betzmann and I are no longer engaged to be married. His sudden change in stance towards my culture, my country, my people and insensitivity towards my religion has lead me to take this difficult and irrevocable decision.”
“There are certain religious and social boundaries that can’t be crossed no matter what, hence, the decision to part ways. Humility, tolerance and respect towards each other are the virtues that we must always adhere to. I look upon my Allah to provide me with the strength to deal with this worldly emotional wreck. I wish Chris a bright and happy future.” Zoya added
For the unversed, Zoya and Christian got engaged earlier this year after Betzmann proposed her in Bahamas. The couple was together since a year and a half and were all set to get married. People welcomed their engagement; Christian’s proposal was very sweet. Not just that, they did many endorsements and vlogs together.
It all started when Betzmann came under hot water over his insensitive remarks on the Israel-Palestine issue. He faced the heat when he had a fall out with Pakistani users on social media, saying “Social media will never win against government and politics. Sharing something which is all over mainstream media won’t make any difference.”
Betzmann questioned the credibility of those raising their voice for Palestine. “Stop feeling guilty for others when you’re littering your own country, not helping your own people and community.”
