“I Will Do Something That Will Shock Everyone.” Qandeel Baloch Said this in one of her videos.
Fouzia Azeem, who gained popularity as Qandeel Baloch, basically belonged Multan area of Punjab province. She used to be a model, actress, women rights activist and a social media celebrity.
Qandeel Baloch became popular in 2013 when she gave audition for Pakistan Idol (a singing show). The video of her audition went viral on social media and her journey of being popular started.
Then she began to post her ‘hot’ videos on social media due to which she gained the attention of a large number of people around the world, but at the same time she received harsh criticism for what she was doing. she was blamed for bringing a bad name to the family and the society.
According to a report she remained in the list of top ten searched persons in Pakistan. she was totally unaware of the fact society does not accept such freedom for women or rather she did not care what the social norms of the society were.
On July 15, 2016 Qandeel Baloch was murdered by her brother, Waseem Azeem. His brother confessed the murder and said she had disrespected the family and community because of which he killed her sister.
Right after her death, human rights organizations, liberal community and social activists stood by her side and raised their voices against ‘honour Killing’.
Qandeel Baloch did not think of the limitations that society and cultural norms created for women. She tried to liberate herself from all boundaries of religion and culture. Qandeel just wanted to fly like a bird that only enjoys freedom.
Qandeel Baloch died to live forever and now this name refuses to die.
