An unfortunate incident happened with Dangal actress Zaira Wasim. Wasim had gone live on her Instagram account to inform her fans that was molested in the flight from Delhi to Mumbai. 

Zaira while narrating the act said, “I was sure of it. He kept nudging my shoulder and continued to move his foot up and down my back and neck. This is terrible. No one will help us if we don’t decide to help ourselves.”

Many come out in support, while few started targeting the victim only. 

Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan lashed out at people who unnecessarily dragged religion in the incident. He expressed his disappointment over the mentality of people making such comments.
