Zulfi of Mystical Shayari band got arrested
Shehzad Ghias Shaikh, a well-known Pakistani stand-up comedian, has strongly denounced the arrest of Zulfiqar ‘Zulfi’ of Mystical Shayari.
The boy who staged an obscene photograph in front of Quaid-e-portrait Azam’s in Islamabad enraged Ansar Abbasi in the past.

Furthemore, he said that governments that are unable to deliver economically obsess about “culture wars.”
He continues that this is happening to please the lowest common denominator.
“Trump Governments like those of Trump, Imran Khan, and Modi, concern themselves with reviving nationalistic fervor as a way to charge their base – this protects their political support base but is highly dangerous for the country.”
He wrote in his post, referring to former US president and Prime Minister Imran Khan.
With this, he also says that arresting people for idiotic nebulous notions of ‘obscenity,’ according to Ghias, is ludicrous. “Imran Khan has been shirtless in public numerous times; if that is Zulfi’s crime, why isn’t Imran Khan in jail as well?” the comedian wondered.

He concluded his message by stating that while the Taliban have not jailed anybody for a picture session, the Pakistani Tali-Khan government has.
Earlier last month, an indecent photoshoot of a teenage model in front of a photograph of Quaid-e-Azam and the Islamabad Expressway went viral. Under Quaid’s slogan, Unity, Faith, and Discipline, the indecent images were taken.
In addition to this, the photoshoot was for a music video called “Mystic Shayari,” it was discovered. The photo session was a tribute to the three ideals that we are proud to uphold: “Faith, Discipline, and Unity.”
