Zoya Nasir has called off her engagement to German vlogger Christian Betzmann over his offensive comments.
The two got engaged earlier this year after Betzmann converted to Islam and proposed to Zoya in the Bahamas.
However, Zoya has decided to call it off after Christian Betzmann’s center of controversy on social media for his insensitive comments over the ongoing pro-Palestine protesters in Pakistan.
Making the announcement in an Instagram post, Zoya 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,” she added.
“I sincerely request for space and privacy for myself and my family as we begin to navigate this emotional turmoil,” Zoya concluded.
