Ertugrul-famed Turkish actress Hande Subasi on Sunday faced severe moral policing from her Pakistani fans for ‘western dressing’. Subasi had posted a few pictures on Instagram on Sunday that stirred a massive backlash on social media from her Pakistani fans.
The Pakistani fans castigated her for wearing revealing clothes that were against the principles of the Islamic faith. “Time to go back home with unforgettable moments…#summer2020 #ekim #october #bozburun #turkey,” said the actress in her post.
Instagram user @sabeel.m wrote: “Fear Of God… We Indians and pakistanins only following because of ertugrul series not to see you weird lifestyle unfollowing.”
Another Instagram user, @than_kingsaman_x said: “But you are very beautiful, but if you wear a good dress, it will be a lot of fun.”
Subasi has been enjoying the weekend with her beau Alican Ulusoy. She was earlier married to Can Tursan from 2012 to 2016. Subashi is a renowned Turkish model and actress who was crowned Miss Turkey as well. The Turkish actress appeared in the first season of Dirilis Ertugrul and played the role of Aykiz, the love interest of Turgut Alp in the series.
However, Subasi is not the only Turkish actress to face moral policing from Pakistan fans. Earlier, leading Turkish actress, Esra Bilgic and Burcu Kirtali, who played Halime Sultan and Gokce Hatun in the series respectively, faced a similar backlash from Pakistani fans on social media.
Fed up with the moral policing, Bilgic had even given a shut-up call to a Pakistani troll who criticized her for wearing a western dress in a picture posted on her Instagram account.
“Please don’t wear such dresses Halima baji, not good,” the Pakistani Instagram user had commented on her post. In her reactionary post, Esra Bilgic said: “Let me give you a little advice: Don’t follow me, thank you.”
