In 2015, She was jumped in the war of words against BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi due to the inappropriate statement gave by the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat that conversion to Christianity was the main reason behind Mother Teresa’s service to the poor people.

In 2016, Maharashtra was faced the water shortage due to which, Dia tweeted,

The irony of the times we live in: farmers commit suicide due to drought and people waste water to ‘play’ #Holi. Go ahead call me anti-Hindu

And later, she had to face criticism and she had to apologize and said that

As a citizen of India, I have an equal respect for all religions, festivals said customs that are celebrated in our country. It has never been my intention to hurt the sentiments of any individual or community. If in the event that my tweet has done so, I apologize unequivocally. That said, the fact remains that various parts of our country are experiencing a severe water shortage. According to a report I read in April last year, the drought in Maharashtra has hit over 90 lakh famers and counting. In October last year, the Maharashtra government officially declared a ‘drought-like condition’ in 14,708 of the state’s 43,000 villages.

 In 2019, When CAA protest was ongoing in India, she shared her expression regarding CAA and said that

My Mother is a Hindu, my biological father was a Christian, my adopted father – a Muslim. In all official documents, my religion status stays blank. Does religion determine I am an Indian? It never did and I hope it never does. #One India #India

But she did not go well with the netizens and she claiming that did not have any knowledge regarding the act and trying to act smart.

In 2020, when Dia named was raised in the Drugs Case during the investigation of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, by Narcotics Control Bureau in which claimed that drug peddlers took her name and maybe connection with in Sushant case. Then Dia Mirza cleared all the claims are baseless through her Twitter account

I would like to strongly refute and categorically deny this news as being false, baseless and with mala fide intentions. Such frivolous reporting has a direct impact on my reputation being besmirched and is causing damage to my career which I have painstakingly built with years of hard work. I have never procured or consumed any narcotic or contraband substance of any form in my life. I intend to pursue the full extent of legal remedies available to me as a law abiding citizen of India. Thanks to my supporters for standing by me.
