Clothes being the problem for Alizeh Shah

Twitter is frenzy
That is not all, Twitter is frenzy too. Soon after her song release on YouTube. Twitter troll brigade rushed to Twitter and slams different jokes on her.
Some even pointed out the irony that among all the current problems in Pakistan. Alizeh Khan became a Twitter trend,
This moral-brigade, called her appearance ‘offensive.’ And accused her of “crossing all boundaries of modesty.” After these series of tweets Alizeh Shah took to her Instagram and slammed back at the trolls and haters. She wrote
“I find all memes and criticism amusing. However, the fact that a trivial topic to discuss is now the most trending issue in our country instead of becoming a voice for Palestine. What’s wrong with our people?”
Women in Pakistan are perceived to be the guardians of culture by many. And celebrities take the burden of trolling the most. This needs to stop.
