Since anything that’s shared on social media these days is bound to spread like wildfire, recently, our very own Saba Qamar was all people could talk about when some of her pictures went viral.
A couple of BTS pictures were leaked online where she can be seen holding a cigarette.
When smoking is your life…. thats Saba Qamar ! pic.twitter.com/sTW4QuGK8h

Saba Qamar is one of the finest actresses of our country. She has made us proud time and again with her work both at home and internationally. With a brilliant onscreen presence, Saba is among the most versatile and phenomenal talents of Pakistan. She has been making rounds on the internet lately with jaw dropping photo shoots. After these pictures went viral, her unbuttoned shirt however, triggered the ghairat of Pakistanis as usual.
Their thoughts were both filthy and disturbing.
Saba Qamar, Mahira ko beat karne ke chakkar main nangi ho ke bhi phir le gi

But then, it’s appreciable how people came to her defense.
Am not in favor of sabaqamar's smoking or whatsoever she was showing of,
But who we are to judge or giving her or anybody else that filthy remarks,
Just saw a tweet by a girl
"Is pic ko itna Rt kro k saba apna last button b khol dy and bla bla"

All of those saying sermons against Saba Qamar while enjoying it all are the real scum of the earth. Your mind is filthy and it probably doesn't work either.

There are people protesting Ali Zafar’s premier because he mistreated a woman and there are people bashing Saba Qamar for her photoshoot… do you see the problem?
— Fatima Riaz🇵🇰 (@fatimariaz72) July 20, 2018
Yep, also true.

It was heartening to see people using their platform to defend her.
This message is for a very fine actress of Pakistan who is going through something ridiculous being done to defame her. Please give it a look and share to show support to her and this Industry! @s_qamarzaman #IsupportSabaQamar #SabaQamar #Lollywood #PakistaniShowbiz pic.twitter.com/YNgzoZTsgm

As this spread, however, Pakistani celebrities came forward to defend Saba Qamar as well.
Aijaz Aslam spoke up, for instance.
“Today I feel sad that a colleague and one of the finest actor of Pakistan is being exploited by someone for a cheap publicity stunt …It was just a simple BTS ( behind the scene) video during a photo shoot from which the screenshots were taken and made viral on social media …It’s disgusting that people can go up to any extent for cheap publicity…Saba you are a superstar and don’t let these haters demotivate you.”

As did Adnan Siddiqui.
“Came through what’s being called BTS images of my colleague and a friend
#SabaQamar’s recently done photoshoot which is spreading on social media like wildfire, I’m deeply saddened by this act, this is not us and we shouldn’t take pride in it in any manner!”

And then, Saba Qamar’s Baaghi co-star, Osman Khalid Butt shared this powerful message:
“Just heard about the all-too-familiar misogynistic, repulsive rhetoric that’s swept the nation once BTS pictures from Saba’s photoshoot were leaked (WITHOUT her consent). First: you do not fuck with Saba Qamar. Period. Second: For the love of God, stop looking for every excuse to drag your icons down. Third: STOP sharing these images/videos and stop commenting on them. If you want to speak out, speak out against the jahalat of whoever did this just for social media infamy.”

It’s important for us to acknowledge that we need to stand up for any kind of harassment in today’s world to eradicate the entire problem.
And hey, let’s keep this message in mind:
Smoking is injurious, yes. But not only to women. Let’s not forget that. As far as her clothes are concerned, apni nazar sambhalein.
