TURBAT: It goes without saying that artists receive great respect in societies across the world. But unfortunately, Baloch society does not believe in giving such love and respect to its talented artists. In recent times, I have seen many episodes of ill-respect on social media, where people ridicule the work of Baloch female actors.
If we compare ourselves to people in other countries, we can see a striking difference. Nationals of other countries love their stars and never try to slander or insult them in whatsoever manner. Pakistanis too should refrain from engaging in trolling our celebrities, especially on social media. If you don’t love or respect them, don’t talk about them at all. If you can’t say anything good, don’t say anything either.
