The controversy which has gained limelight since last few weeks regarding goodwill ambassador of UNICEF Priyanka Chopra is now considered by UN.

The United Nations has said that the goodwill ambassador “in their own personal capacity hold the privilege to talk about issues that intrigue or concern them”.

The statement originated from Stephane Dujarric, the representative for Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, in light of purportedly pro-war remarks made by United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador and Indian actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas in February and featured as of late by a dissident.

Addressing a journalist’s question in regards to the UN’s position on Chopra’s statement in Thursday’s briefing, Dujarric stated: “Well I mean I can reveal to you that for any goodwill ambassador whether it’s Miss Chopra or any other person, we anticipate that them should hold fast to unbiased positions when they talk for the benefit of UNICEF or some other organization.”

In any case, he included that when these ambassadors talk in their own ability they hold the privilege to talk about issues of intrigue or worry to them.

Their own perspectives anyway don’t mirror the perspectives of the organization with which they might be subsidiary with,” Dujarric explained.

It was found out on August 21 that Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari had officially kept in touch with the head of UNICEF, requesting that to expel the Indian actress as a worldwide UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador over her remarks.

The minister’s move had come days after Chopra was stood up to at an occasion in the United States recently by Pakistani-American activist Ayesha Malik over a tweet conveyed by the on-screen actress prior this year for the Indian armed force.

Malik bashed the Indian actress for being a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” and “empowering nuclear war against Pakistan” by tweeting for the Indian armed force in February, when Pakistan and India went to the edge of war in the wake of the Pulwama attack in occupied Kashmir.

Accordingly, Chopra regarded Malik’s statement as “venting” and rather than appropriately answering to her, proceeded to state: “I have many friends from Pakistan and I am from India. War isn’t something I’m extremely fond of but I am a patriot, so I’m grieved in the event that I hurt sentiments of individuals who do love me and have cherished me.

“In any case, I believe that we all have a, kind of, center ground that we as a whole need to walk. Much the same as you most likely do also. The manner in which you came at me right now, young lady, don’t shout. We’re all here for love. Try not to humiliate yourself.”

UN has once again favored the stance of its Goodwill Ambassador by not linking the personal views with that of a peace ambassador. Not only Shireen Mazari but one of the British-born Pakistani actress, Armeena Khan also wrote an open letter to UNICEF for the removal of Priyanka Chopra from the position of goodwill ambassador of UNICEF. However, it seems that none of the effort has bore fruit to Pakistan.
