Qandeel Baloch who got fame through Social Media for her unique style and bold appearance has been shot by her brother, Multan Police reported. No doubt, she had made a lot of fuss at Facebook and on TV where she was a hot debate on a daily basis.
In a country like Pakistan, where free-speech is not that appreciated, her living and exposing herself like a model was a dangerous act. In a common Pakistani’s eye, she had gained ‘bad-fame’ and that must had embarrassed her brother. However, she knew that she is exposing herself to danger and had asked the Government to provide security. But before security could reach her, brother took her life.
Qandeel had got instant fame but it took her life. Her death is a matter of grief that should be taken as a warning too. We should chase whatever we want, but by living in limits. Else such tragic incidents are bound to happen.
