It’s our responsibility to celebrate other religious festivals as they indulge in ours without giving a single thought. What happened yesterday was unacceptable which also caught attention as well.

On that incident, many of the celebrities raised their voice against the bakery incident.

First, everyone thought it’s happening in only one branch at Khayabne Jami, but later it turned out it’s been practiced at every branch across Karachi.

Trending No.1 in Pakistani Twitter, apart from social media netizens actor and VJ Anoushey Ashraf held a major point. “Writing something for someone else’s faith doesn’t make my faith weak.”

Shedding light on the incident and schooling netizens on their hate-mongering and hypocritical behavior, she commented, “If I write Merry Christmas, which by the way means ‘Happy Birthday to Christ’, it doesn’t mean I have faith that he’s the son of God.

If the western world tomorrow says that Eid is un-Christian-like and they don’t believe it and no Muslim can get an Eid Mubarak cake based on this explanation, then the hue and cry would be real.”

‘Your job to write wishes’ – Anoushey

Ashraf schooled the workers in the bakeries that it is simply their “job to write wishes for the customers.” Highlighting that respect goes both ways, she added, “The person wanting the cake deserves respect before what you ‘believe’.

Religion connects people, it brings us all closer, and it makes us love. These clergies have only helped create such division where people in the comments sections are abusing one another.

Religion is once more at the forefront of division amongst people.”

She even herself also visited the Boat Basin branch and she felt deeply disappointed. And “offended as a Muslim”. She suggests the bakery “lead by example and gets over their personal biases.”

She also called them out for “treating them (minorities) just like Muslims are treated badly in the West.”

Sanam Saeed also jumped in the boat

Sanam Saeed Zindagi Gulzar Hai actress expressed her shocking reaction. She wrote, “The white in our flag represents solidarity with our minorities.

We should start practicing inclusivity and respect.” Tagging both bakeries, she added, “If it’s true that both bakeries refused to write ‘Merry Christmas’ on customer cakes then shame on you. And if it’s a policy then it needs to be revised as soon as possible.”

Another user wrote, schooled the Delizia for their irrespective act. And told them the real meaning of Pakistani flag.

For what Delizia has been doing or done sending a negative message to the world and exhibiting how we treat minorities.
