Pakistani social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch , known for her daring posts in which she dressed revealingly and posed suggestively, was brutally strangled to death by her brother in the name of “honour killing". In her last post on facebook, she stated how she was trying to “change the typical orthodox mindset of people who don’t wanna come out of their shells of false beliefs and old practices".
While you may be outraged or disgusted by how in some cultures, men can simply kill women for their so called “immoral acts", you are actually doing the same by judging women who choose not to suppress their sexuality or who express themselves in non-traditional ways, with your fiery tongues and depreciating comments. You, like Qandeel’s brother and many men who killed their daughters or sisters, feel entitled to condemn women for being themselves and having their own critical minds, women who tried to break free and refused to be your puppets.
If you have ever judged a woman (or man) that way, don’t be such hypocrites to mourn for Qandeel’s death. Go rejoice for her death and the death of 5000 women each year like what some Pakistani are doing right now because you are exactly one of those killers, don’t you realise? #restinpeace #queen
巴基斯坦網絡紅人 Qandeel Baloch Official 上星期被哥哥以「榮譽處決」之名暴力勒死。在巴基斯坦的文化和宗教背景下，QB敢於在社交網絡貼上性感的影片和照片，是極度大膽的行為，甚至被視為侮辱性和不道德。她在生前最後一個Facebook貼文寫道，希望能夠改變那些守舊的宗教思想，讓人摒棄單為控制女人而存的虛偽扭曲的信念。
