What Nushrratt said
Nushrratt took to her Instagram handle on Tuesday to share a selfie video where she assured her fans that she’s back home, well and safe. “Two days ago, I woke up in my hotel room in Tel Aviv to sounds of bomb blasts and sirens. We were taken down to the basement in a shelter area. Main pehle kabhi iss situation mein rahi nahin hoon (I’ve never been in a situation like this),” Nushrrat said.
She also added that she feels grateful to be back in a country which celebrates peace. “Par aaj jab main apne ghar pe uthi hu, with no bomb blasts or sirens, toh mujhe realise hota hai ki kitni badi baat hai, hum kitne fortunate hain ki hum iss country mein hain, ki hum protected hain, hum safe hain (But when I woke up at home today, I realised it’s such a big deal. That we’re so fortunate to live in this country, that we’re protected and safe),” Nushrratt added.
She then thanked the Government of India, the Indian and Israeli embassies, and all those who prayed for her safety. She also wished that peace is restored in Israel soon. Nushrrat recounted her experiences in Israel in further detail in a long note also posted on her Instagram handle.
