The actor announced she's throwing away her Cartier watch in protest
Actor Nusraat Faria has joined the call to boycott French products. She stated her stance in a facebook post on Saturday.
"I am throwing away my Cartier watch. #Boycott_French_Products," the post read.
After her followers questioned her intentions and the potency of throwing away her expensive watch, the actor retaliated with another post that said: "My religion is my believe (belief) and I have 200% right to say what I feel about anything that (is) too hard core to bear. It's my feelings and I am entitled to share however I do it. Twisting it to a different way is your Mentality not mine (sic)."
The actor made headlines last month for releasing her second song, Ami Chai Thakte. The video garnered over 2.5million views in 2 weeks on SVF's official YouTube page. She is also starring in a Zee5 original, Jodi, Kintu, Tobuo.
Her protest stems from the growing Muslim anger over France's defence of the right to publish cartoons depicting Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Tensions between France and Muslim-majority nations flared up last month when a young Muslim man beheaded a French schoolteacher who had shown caricatures of the Prophet in class.
