YouTuber Mooroo shared some thoughts about the recent controversies amongst the Pakistani YouTube community. His most recent video showcases a whole different point of view to the controversies.
He starts off the video by apologizing to everyone for taking sides, because some of his friends helped him see how taking sides was just adding to the controversy. The video has voice recordings of his friends explaining to him how by taking a side, he added to the situation, which isn’t okay.
Those friends include big names like Irfan Junejo…
…Ali Sufiyan Wasif…
…and Daniyal from Karachi Vynz.
He also apologizes to the content creators who talked about being disappointed in him once he started choosing sides, stating that he’ll try to be better than what is expected of him.
He also stated that he’s sorry for dragging his viewers into the mess.
“Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people” sprawls across the screen. He then leads with how he will work backward in trying to further discuss the issues at hand, stating that only after discussing people and events could he lead to the discussion around ideas.
He starts off by briefly naming a few of the people involved. Obviously, the list starts off with Sham and ends with an apology to Sham and Froggy in the case that he was the cause of any discomfort to them. He quickly reviews the entire phadda, leading up to the big event in question: the infamous Ocean Mall meet and greet that ended with Froggy being allegedly attacked.
Mooroo goes on to share the various takes on the attack – Sham’s claim that she was attacked, Rahim Pardesi’s claim that she wasn’t and the striped shirt dude’s video from a different angle, showing how he didn’t attack Froggy at all, but grabbed Shahmeer’s collar.
Mooroo brings up how a doctor even pointed out that Froggy may have used makeup to highlight a bruise that may not have existed in the first place.
However, he goes on to reiterate that he’s completely anti-violence. Moreover, he talks about the downside of the prevalent mob mentality that can pit people against each other so vehemently.
He finally moves on to the”idea” he wished to discuss: Intellectual Property Theft.
He goes on to say that Intellectual Property Theft is the real issue at hand to which he gives the term three other names: chapna, copy, chori.
The rest of the video consists of side-by-side comparisons of original videos and their copied versions.
The comparisons showcase a real issue that needs to be worked on in the Pakistani community, because it happens way too often. The comparisons show how easy it is to steal intellectual property and slap your own name on it, without giving the proper credits to the rightful owner of the ideas.
Mooroo spares no one – from Sham Idrees, to Shahveer Jafry to Zaid Ali – everyone is named and shamed.
He gets fellow YouTubers and influencers to comment on whether or not the videos are plagiarized, and the consensus is that they are.
Moreover, Mooroo also gets Rahim Pardesi’s statement on how Zaid initially “took inspiration” from his content.
He then talks about how Zaid actually admitted that his content can be copied, stating once that there isn’t really any YouTuber that creates 100% original content. While it can be argued that people can take inspiration from others, lifting content, word-to-word and frame-to-frame isn’t the way to go about it.
However, he also adds in the apologies made by Zaid…
…and Sham Idrees, who admitted the same.
Finally, he gives credit where it’s due, naming the YouTuber who have had their content stolen.
In the end, Mooroo caps it off by saying that he hopes for a better tomorrow in every aspect. The video puts forward some very important points and while it’s a long watch, it is definitely an imperative one.
Here’s the entire video:
