Saba Qamar delivers powerful message about smoking in latest Instagram post

Published: April 13, 2018


KARACHI: Last night, Saba Qamar posted a picture of herself from a recent photo shoot on her Instagram.

In the black and white picture, the Baaghi actor is seen rocking quiffed hair and a casual tee tucked into striped culottes, while she holds up an 80’s radio, giving us real old school vibes.

But there is more to the picture than first meets the eye: Saba’s got a cigarette between her lips. Oh no… here comes the smoking police!

Just a couple of weeks ago, fellow actor Mahira Khan became the center for controversy for smoking. Back then, many Pakistani celebs came to the her defense back then.


PHOTO: INSTAGRAM Saba Qamar’s post is no different.

The picture that Saba has posted also lends support to Mahira. The Hindi Medium star captioned it,“Mard peeyein toh wah, hum peeyein toh haaaa? Tum khao toh chips, hum khaain toh aaloo (When men smoke, wow. When women smoke, oh no. Wh en you eat, it’s chips but when we eat, it’s potatoes.) Smoking is injurious to all, not only to women.”

The point Saba is trying to put across here is that there is no difference between a man or woman smoking as it has the same affect on their health.

Unfortunately for women, society does not function like that. But here’s hoping that posts like Saba’s will help in making a change to narrow minds.

    Promoting smoking is not a good way to criticize sexism. Don’t really expect mature responses from a bunch of plastic and low-life celebrities. I hope they do not become the moral guide for Pakistanis.Recommend
