Social media has been on a roll ever since the Lux Style Awards 2019 saw Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain get engaged after a very public proposal. Responses to the public engagement have been pretty mixed, with social media users either coming out in full support or criticizing the occasion as a “stunt.” Yasir and Iqra’s public displays of affection also received a ton of buzz, some good, some bad.
Recently the young starlet and LSA Best Actress award winner, Iqra Aziz took to Instagram and unveiled to the world the much-talked-about engagement ring that caused havoc in the industry and on social media with a note directed towards those sending in negative comments in the midst of the ample love and congratulatory posts pouring in. She stepped forward and spoke in favor of her beau in her caption: "Meri yeh khushi itni bari hai k mujhe sirf achi baatein aur duaein sunayi derahi hain. Love is to express, not to impress. My man expressed his love in front of the world which takes a lot of guts and i am blissful. you’r my ZING. Thankyou for being so expressive, generous, caring, loving, chivalrous, realistic and noble. I love you...X"

Speaking about the backlash she received over the PDA between the couple during the proposal, the actor has stated to the trolls: “To whom it may concern: Agr larki proposal k waqt roti nahi balky ek khushi k lamhe ko hans kar enjoy karti hai tou yeh nahi kehte k planned tha. [If a girl during her proposal chooses to enjoy the moment with laughter instead of shedding tears, one is not supposed to say that it was pre-planned]. Rung main bhung na daalein aur apni khushi ka intezaar karein. Shukria. (Do not rain on someone’s parade and let wait for your happy days to come.)"
Iqra Aziz and Yasir Hussain's public engagement has received a ton of traction and attention on social media and celebrities like Hamza Ali Abbasi have come to dispel the frenzy around it and urged trolls to let them be.
