However, in a more surprising turn of events, blogger Fatima Nasir conducted a photoshoot at the location
For your information, Fatima Nasir is a sportsperson, swimmer, and fire-breather.
Here she is. With Hafeez Center. Posing with a victory sign at the front.
There are some more pictures as well of the influencer with Hafeez Center
Documenting the incident makes sense. But like this? Nah
Not sure why this was considered a good – or even doable – idea
People are really pissed at the blogger’s insensitive attitude towards the burning Hafeez Center

Can you even imagine how heartless these so called influencers are? This girl – Fatima– went to Hafeez Center, which was burning to the ground and people were losing their livelihood, but she walked around, took pictures and laughed at the miseries of these poor people. pic.twitter.com/Npz2CAvFYW

Fatima Nasir has also issued an apology on this matter
Fatima states that she was at the spot for a documentary and she sincerely apologizes for not sympathizing with the victims and all those impacted by the fire.
Let’s hope that our bloggers and social media influencers become more mindful about what they are putting up and sympathize with people’s suffering, instead of displaying insensitivity and entitlement. What is your take on this photoshoot? Let us know in the comments.
