Zargar’s followers were pleased with her gesture and appreciated her move. Last year Zargar was brutally trolled and mocked. She spent months in jail during her pregnancy. Twitter user Md Asif Khan wrotethat she is an amazing human being. Zargar thanked him saying that she was just doing her bit.
Thank you Asif bhai. Just doing my bit 🙂 Allah bless u too.
