Christian Betzmann speaks up after breakup with Zoya Nasir

Written by on May 24, 2021

A day after Pakistani actress Zoya Nasir called off her engagement to German travel vlogger Christian Betzmann over his “insensitive remarks about Pakistan and the situation in Palestine”, he came up with his side of the story on Sunday.

In a series of comments he posted on his Instagram handle about the entire situation, he said it was a “lie”.

“First of all, this is not an apology. It’s funny how people twist things to get clout,” he said.

“Pakistan has welcomed me with open arms and I am forever grateful to that. I love my fans and I love everyone who has been supporting me through the channel over the past year to show the good image of the country, and the fun side.

“I had to adapt to this culture and you will have to admit to mine; Honest and constructive criticism. Infrastructure wise this country is a third world country and it also suffers immensely from pollution (garbage).

“These are facts, doesn’t mean I hate the country or its people. That’s a lie. I said purely because I care about Pakistan and really want to see a change one day. But [in] order to see the positive change, we have to accept the mistakes and find a way to fix them. By ignoring the problems, we will never fix anything.”

went on to clarify how he never criticised the idea of prayers, insisting that since his conversion to Islam, he has seen a positive side to the belief system.

Chris had spoken earlier this week about his silence over the atrocities taking place in Palestine, saying that “social media will never win against government and politics.” “Sharing something which is all over mainstream media won’t make any difference,” he said.

Chris criticised Pakistanis for not doing the same for their country. “Stop feeling guilty for others when you’re littering your own country, not helping your own people and community,” he said.

In a private chat with another Instagram user, the German vlogger remarked the user’s comment about social media being a normal citizen’s only power with a taunt: “You have no power,” and, “Go pray, that’s the only thing you can do.”

Against this backdrop, Zoya Nasir called off her engagement to Chris.

However, Chris rejected this claim of Zoya Nasir and said it was he who cut off his engagement to Zoya.
