After keep mum for a couple of days, newly engaged couple Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain have finally responded – in their own way – to the criticism and trolls after the Lahore Se Aagay star proposed Aziz at the Lux Style Awards on Sunday.

The Suno Chanda actor with a picture of her engagement ring, shared, “Meri yeh khushi itni bari hai k mujhe sirf achi baatein aur duaein sunayi derahi hain. (My happiness is so massive that I can only hear good wishes and prayers) Love is to express, not to impress.”

She further added, “My man expressed his love in front of the world which takes a lot of guts and i am blissful, you’r my ZING. Thankyou for being so expressive, generous, caring, loving, chivalrous, realistic and noble. I love you.”

Addressing the hate, Aziz went on, “To whom it may concern: Agr larki proposal k waqt roti nahi balky ek khushi k lamhe ko hans kar enjoy karti hai tou yeh nahi kehte k planned tha. Rung main bhung na daalein aur apni khushi ka intezaar karein. (If a girl doesn’t break down while being proposed to and says yes ecstaticly, that doesn’t mean it was all planned. Please don’t try to bring anyone down. Your time will come) Thank you.”

Hussain, on the other hand shared a meme on his Instagram handle  which read, “You can piss in public in Pakistan but can’t kiss in public.”

    Assalaam-O-Alaikum
    Allah (SWT ) aap dono ki jorri salamat rakhe or khushyun ke saath aap apni aanewali married life bhurpur tareqe se guzarain. Hamari tu yeh hi dua hai,magar publically iss tariqe se propose karna hamare culture mein zaib nahi deta hai yeh tu # Westernized Culture #.
    Baaqi aap dono hamesha khush rahain.Recommend

    And that is precisely the problem of our society that we cant and we don’t express love out in the open (whether at home or outside that doesn’t really matter). Love more, appreciate more, live more.Recommend

    People will never be happy with anything. What if the woman proposed to him? Would that be acceptable? How would Hazrat Khadijah’s (PBUH) act be perceived in today’s Pakistan? I tell the morons: mind your own business and let them be happy. Recommend

    @AS: we are the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, we have our own set of rules and culture. Keep that in mind!Recommend

    I think we missed the point here. It was not an expression of love, rather vulgarity, which, is not acceptable in an Islamic state.Recommend
