Pakistan is demanding the United Nations strip Priyanka Chopra-Jonas of her honorary title as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Peace for supporting her country’s unilateral annexation of the disputed province of Jammu and Kashmir along the border with Pakistan.

Chopra-Jonas is a popular Indian movie star also known for her fierce patriotism. She was formerly Miss World 2000 and is also known for her philanthropy. She is married to American pop singer and actor, Nick Jonas.

Chopra-Jonas has worked with UNICEF since 2006 and was appointed as the national and global UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Child Rights in 2010 and 2016. She is currently UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Peace.

Pakistan's Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari demanded Chopra-Jonas be "immediately denotified" from her role as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Peace. She made this demand in a letter to UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore.

In this same letter, Mazari accused Chopra of "jingoism" and showing "support for war" by publicly endorsing the Indian government's position on Kashmir, a disputed region claimed in full by both India and Pakistan but divided among them and China.

"Her jingoism and support for violations by the Modi government of international conventions ... as well as support for war, including a nuclearwar, undermines the credibility of the UN position to which she has been elevated," Mazari said.

"Unless she is removed immediately, the very idea of a UN Goodwill Ambassador for Peace becomes a mockery globally."

The Ministry of Human Rights Government of Pakistan later tweeted the letter with the caption: “HR Minister Dr @ShireenMazari1 today wrote a letter to UNICEF chief to remove Priyanka Chopra as UN Goodwill Ambassador for Peace over her pro-war comments and support to BJP Govt policy of ethnic cleansing/racism/fascism/genocide@UNICEF @UNHumanRights @pid_gov @appcsocialmedia.”

Chopra-Jonas is being taken to task by Pakistan for a tweet made last Feb. 26 when India and Pakistan almost went to war over India’s bombing of a Pakistani village.

In support of her countrymen, Chopra-Jonas tweeted "Jai Hind #IndianArmedForces.” This translates into "Hail India #IndianArmed Forces."

Her tweet would have remained innocuous were it not for her international celebrity status and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announcing early this month it had cancelled the autonomy it granted the state of Jammu and Kashmir. India imposed curfews and an almost complete communications blackout in Jammu and Kashmir

India’s move was quickly and fiercely opposed by Pakistan. Demonstrations in support of retaining Kashmir’s status quo as a divided region erupted around the world.
