Mansha Pasha caused quite a stir a while back when she roasted Momina Mustehsan, Sadaf Kanwal and, Hira Mani all in one tweet.
Recently, Mansha Pasha took part in an important talk at the ZAB Media Festival at SZABIST, in Karachi.
Alongside her, there was Fifi Haroon, Osman Khalid Butt, Hareem Farooq, and journalist Manal Faheem Khan. The topic of this discussion was Women in Cinema in Pakistan. Considering how things have been changing over the recent years, such a talk was necessary to better understand the changing dynamics of the entertainment industry and also to understand why we need to have more women leading our film industry.

While we may have loved these celebrities for speaking up on these important issues, there was one person who wasn’t too fond of it all.
This person chose to take the discussion even further back to whether or not the film industry is in line with Islam.
@manshapasha Saw you attended that conference with @aClockworkObi and @FarooqHareem. To make it clear to you those who break the laws of Islam which entire showbiz work does will always be judged and will always be discouraged and will never get acceptance ever @OfficialHanzala

Mansha Pasha chose to respond in the way she best knows how- the sassy way.
I think people who follow and write to us sinners are also sinning. I suggest you secure your afterlife by swiftly unfollowing. God bless. https://t.co/S9YXQAlQ7E

Mic Drop FOR GOOD.
In Pakistan, we have a problem. A problem of using someone’s religion against them and to establish one’s dominance over the other. The talk this Twitter user is referring to had nothing to do with faith, it had to do with how the entertainment industry operates. To go out of the way to attack someone, their religion and their relationship to God is totally uncalled for, no matter how much you disagree with what they do for a living.
Mansha’s response, I feel, comes from a place of frustration; a frustration that a lot of people in the arts face in Pakistan. People who act, dance or paint for a living don’t have it easy here and are attacked online by people who use religion as their tool. Mansha’s answer is super sassy (and I am LIVING for it), but it carries a very simple message- if you don’t like something, or someone when just stay away and don’t engage.
Mahira Khan applauded Mansha for her reply.

Fans were beyond happy to see Mansha stand up like this.
So happy to see you all demonstrate courage in your statements 👍👍👍. For the rest please understand Only God is perfect, rest are all sinners.

Apparently, this guy is on a roll.
Zabardast. I have seen this man on commenting on others too. Ignore him

A lot would say that Mansha shouldn’t have reacted the way she did, but I urge you to see the flipside. Mansha and almost all other celebrities (especially female actors) have to see thousands and thousands of people calling them kaafirs or insulting them. There’s a limit to how much one person can take, and she might have reached her, and even if she did, she dealt with the situation very well.
