You have to be living under a rock if you don’t know about Yasir Hussain and Iqra Aziz’s very public engagement. Yasir proposed to his long-time alleged beau during the Lux Style Awards which means thousands of people were watching him get down on one knee. Like NBD.

Anyways, Yasir’s very public proposal has the whole country divided. While romantics are loving Yasir’s public display of affection, others are hating on the couple for being too public with their romance.

Hamza Ali Abbasi who likes to comment on all matters under the sun also had a few words to share. Taking to Twitter, his favourite social media platform, Abbasi defended Iqra and Yasir and congratulated them on getting engaged. Quoting verses from the Quran, Hamza requested people to not judge the two and instead appreciate them for wanting to opt the halal route i.e. nikkah.


He asked fellow Pakistanis not to point out flaws in other people and instead enjoy the good part.

Of course, no Hamza Ali Abbasi debate is complete without at least one reference to item songs.

Despite the backlash Hamza received from the public, he continued to defend Iqra and Yasir asking people to refrain from name calling and abusing the newly-engaged couple.

We have to agree with Hamza’s stance here. Just because you disagree with someone doesn’t mean you have to resort to name-calling or being rude to them. Cyberbullying is real and has detrimental effects on a person’s health. Just a few days ago, Iqra opened up on being bullied online and the negative effects it has on a person’s mental health.

Meanwhile, other celebrities including Mahira Khan and Gohar Rasheed congratulated Iqra on social media.
