liberal-lubna-fromLahore | 3 years ago | Reply | Recommend As always, real progressive liberal Pakistani women working tirelessly in their respective fields of film, drama, fashion,music, to promote a positive image of Pakistan have been exclusively LEFT OUT. This list seems more like an anti Pakistan propaganda. Qandeel should not eve be in the list. 1000 women in USA got murdered in white honor killings. USA has over 1000 magazines. Not a single one bestowed an honorary prestigious award to any one of those victims. But here, fake pakistani liberal aunties are using Qandeel's story to paint a negative picture of Pakistan that is not there.
siesmann | 3 years ago Honor killings in USA?!!!WOW. Few odd cases have been Muslim immigrants.
liberal-lubna-fromLahore | 3 years ago | Reply | Recommend So ET complies a list of all those women that have promoted a negative image of Pakistan. I'm not surprised.
