Just read some heart wrenching news of 8 year old Zohra, I am truly out of words. Where is this world going? Where has humanity gone? Do we not even have an ounce of humanity left in ourselves? I am literally shaking after seeing this news and imagining what her parents are going through. Was this innocent soul’s life worth less than those parrots? Zohra who was only 8 years old actually knew the meaning of freedom. I strongly condemn this brutal act by these so called “Humans”. #justiceforzohrashah so that no other family can beat or kill another angel. If we stay quiet today, we will remain silent forever.
In her post, Maya Ali called for justice for Zohra Shah and wrote, "I am deeply disturbed by the horrific news of the murder of eight-year-old Zohra Shah. Where is this world going?"
Expressing her anger, the actress wrote, "Where has humanity disappeared from us? Were those parrots more valuable than that girl's life? Can our society thrive without humanity? '
"Zohra, who was only eight years old, really knew the meaning of freedom," she wrote.
