Madonna, We Love You And Everything But Please Don't Kill Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy

By Haadia Paracha | 11 Oct, 2016

If you’re a late 80’s or 90’s burger kid, Madonna’s “Like a virgin”, “Papa don’t preach” or “4 minutes” was most likely your jam. The lady is not only one of the biggest musical icons of our times but also an incredibly gifted and risque fashion icon. Now, 58 years old, the pop diva is still continuing her crazy stage performances along with supporting various causes around the world.

Today, she extended support to International Day Of The Girl under a Chime for Change campaign that published a short on Qandeel Baloch.

Posting an image of Qandeel Baloch on her instagram, Madonna highlighted a short film directed by Sharmeen-Obaid Chinoy with Madonna’s narration.

The caption was beautifully worded, introducing the short-film by the Oscar-winner, lamenting over draconian practice of honor killings and congratulating Pakistani government for passing the anti-honor killing bill.


Well…except for one tiny issue.

She kinda, sorta told EVERYONE that Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy was also dead.

(God forbid)

The update has been made but the episode was still a little…comedic. We’re also happy to announce that Sharmeen is alive and kicking.


What is the short film about, though?

Chime for Change is a campaign co-founded by international pop star Beyoncé and Mexican-American actress Salma Hayek Pinault, to strive for gender equality in all parts of the world. Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy is an advisory board member of Chime for Change and submitted a short film narrated by Madonna to shed light on the Pakistani model, actress, activist and social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch’s honor killing and Pakistan’s struggle to pass the anti-honor killings and rape bill.

“All of us need to honor the women who have been killed, whose names we do not know, by calling on all governments to punish all killers of women. The world that we want to leave our girls and our daughters must be much safer than the world we have inherited”, Sharmeen announced during the film’s debuted at the 2016 Global Citizen festival.
