Mazari urges UN to remove Priyanka Chopra as goodwill peace ambassador
Federal Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari on Monday urged the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to take action against its goodwill ambassador Priyanka Chopra over her warmongering stance
Mazari took a jibe at the actress after a viral video – showing a woman confront the UN ambassador for being a ‘hypocrite’ – resurfaced a tweet Priyanka posted in February during a serious escalation of the conflict between India and Pakistan.
Priyanka’s response on the confrontation sparked another controversy over her insensitive behavior— as she used the term ‘patriotic’ to justify her cheering for the Indian military and calling for war with Pakistan after the Pulwama incident.
“@UNICEF needs to remove Priyanka Chopra as its ambassador immediately in the wake of her support for Indian mly and Rogue Modi govt. Otherwise it makes a mockery of such appointments. UNICEF should really be more careful on whom it appoints to these honorary positions,” Mazari wrote in her Twitter post.

In the viral video, a Pakistani girl named Ayesha Malik can be seen confronting Chopra saying, “It was hard hearing you talk about humanity, because as your neighbour, a Pakistani, I know you’re a bit of a hypocrite, you tweeted on February 26: ‘Jai Hind! #IndianArmedForces.’ You are a UNICEF ambassador for peace and you are encouraging nuclear war against Pakistan.”
“There is no winner in this. As a Pakistani, millions of people, like, me, have supported you in your business…” she continued before security snatched Malik’s mic away.
