Now, she’s found herself at the center of a professional controversy

Muniba is now being accused of plagiarizing the work of another artist’s work. Laiba Baig, who is also an artist herself, took to Facebook to accuse Muniba Mazari of copying her work.

She called Muniba a “liar and fraud” for copying her work. She says that she reached out to Muniba to talk it out but the artist said that since she was using a different medium for her work, it does not constitute plagiarism.

According to Laiba, the reason why she did not take any legal action against her was because she had heard of Muniba’s struggles

She says she had heard about her traumatic accident and knew that she was starting a new life. She did not want to create hurdles for her.
