After Rabi Pirzada’s videos leaked she became the center of a major controversy
Ever since the singer’s videos and images leaked late Thursday night, people in Pakistan quickly made her the center of discussion, forgetting the Tezgam incident that had taken more than 70 lives only a few hours earlier.
People had started coming up with insane conspiracy theories about Rabi Pirzada’s leaks
Indians fake accounts with Pakistani names trying to make Rabi Pirzada's tweet viral to defame DGISPR and Pak Army bcs Rabi Pirzada spoke for Kashmir.
Don't trust their propaganda and lets get united to stand with Rabi Pirzada. Also don't share her video & pictures.#RabiPirzada

There was a girl who recently came forward and apologized to Rabi for leaked videos, leading everyone to wonder if she was the culprit for the leaks

On Rabi’s part, the singer has apparently said to several media outlets that the videos and images leaked after she sold a phone and the shopkeeper allegedly leaked the contents of the phone.
Whatever the reasons for the leaks may be, infringement of privacy is a big concern here. Rabi Pirzada was a victim of revenge porn and this needs to be addressed immediately. We need authorities who can address such issues not by banning people’s freedoms unnecessarily but by devising proper measures to control such invasion of privacy matters. This can be done by having a proper infrastructure, with sensitivity-trained professionals to handle complaints of leaks at the earliest and with utmost care. Moreover, when authorities can find it easy to ban websites of their choosing, I’m pretty sure they can also help individuals in need looking to take down their personal photographs and/or videos.
As for Rabi, you do you.
