Veena Malik Becomes a Web Celebrity

When I say Veena Malik, the first thing that would pop into most of our minds would be Big Boss. Her actions in the Indian reality show “Big Boss” have been dissected and discussed by millions of Pakistanis and has remained the major topic of conversation for countless TV shows, baithaks, hang outs and what not.

Admit it or not, all this talk surrounding her has made her somewhat of a celebrity. She was actually in the top ten twitter trends worldwide after the Express News interview she gave and as ProPakistani first reported, she’s the first Pakistani woman to ever achieve this feat.

Her controversy sold and she became the most talked about woman in Pakistan, seemingly overnight.

Well that’s not it. The real news is that Veena Malik has become a world wide celebrity. In fact, these days, a video of verbal spat between her and a religious scholar on the Express News interview she gave (on her return from Big Boss) is circling around the web, including Digg, Huffington and various other notable places.

Entitled, “This woman is AWESOME. Pakistani Actress Defies Mullah Accusing Her of Immorality”, the video has English subtitles as well, providing this issue an international audience.

Just to add to your knowledge, this video has been viewed more than a half million times in just less than one month.

Now this is an interesting scenario for a multitude of reasons. First of all, this is one of those rare stories to surface on Digg (and get popular too) from Pakistan . It’s a personal experience that stories from Pakistan don’t usually pop on Digg, regardless of how interesting or pop-worthy they are (Power diggers will concur here).

For those of you who think that I’m being too much of a conspiracy theorist, have a look and see how many positive stories about our country were Digg’d the most:

Personally I feel the way this issue had the whole nation gripped, is disturbing to say the very least. It’s not like enough doesn’t happen in our country that we elevate a person, whose very work is to get talked about no matter how that may be achieved, to an internet celebrity status.

Another point to ponder here is why do these types of stories make headlines in western media that show Pakistan in a negative light? Are these stories the best Pakistan can do? Or is good stuff so hard to come out of Pakistan these days?

All stuff like this does, makes us “the laughing stock” for countless people. Things could have gone differently in this case if Veena Malik had refused to go to the show. Having gone there, she could have portrayed our culture and the situation lot better.

Even after having done all that stuff, she could have at least accepted that she was at fault instead of denying and blowing this issue out of proportion.

On the other side, the host of that show could have thought of Pakistan before setting up an incendiary encounter he knew would have gone the road it did. As for us, why was this issue more important than the life and death issues this country faces everyday?

I think it’s a call for us to have a soul search. Instead of discussing whether an entertainer was scantily clothed or not, we should focus our attentions on matters more critical. It’s not like we’ve run out of them.

It’s time to think for a better image of Pakistan, instead of increasing our personal ratings, advantages, profits and individual interests.

  • is this an IT news or related to telecom ???

    i think it has nothing to do with your business…

    Let this site remain dedicated to IT stuff….

    Best Regards.

    • This has to do with what users want and I really enjoy every single bit that proPakistani.pk publish. Good work ProPakistani team I love your forum. :)

      • Thanks Aizaz,

        Also, this news is published with respect to Veena’s notable coverage on web, which is a kinda rare

        • Even it got coverage on Digg, Twitter Trends and many more places.. this is not a trivial issue. I don’t know why people just see only -ve things… I think the reason behind this is “Grapes are sour.”

          because they can not do the good work and they can not resist when they see some one else doing it in better way than they can even think of it.

          • Dear Mr. Aizaz,

            You are taking me in a wrong sense. My opinion about this post is, this is not the right form to such issues. There are so many forms where this sort of issues can be discussed. There is no such need to spoil image of propakistani.pk by posting these sort of news.

            I hope you got my point.

            Regards.

        • This is exactly how veena’s stunt became popular. People started to post about veena, because others were doing it. And the trend is likely to continue. What about p**nstars? They deserve coverage as well. Right?
          *please dont publish it, instead, ill appreciate if i can reach Mr. Amir to discuss a bit more about this kind of posts on PP. Can you forward this post to him? THx”

          • ooooh it seems that you watch too much porn dear. Well they got separate websites for porn lovers and desperate people. ProPaksitani.pk is not right place for such posts.

            Well they got a .xxx domain for that try searching other websites dear.

            And you are going a step further by comparing Veena Malik with porn stars, woun’t you ?

            • Seems like you are more into the stuff you have accused me of. You even know of the domains and stuff and what not. Unfortunately, you fail to realize that everyone else isn’t like you. That much experience, good for you. Really reflects your mindset.
              Further, Mr. Veena Malik made it to twitter and digg etc. temporarily. If this is your yardstick, you need a mental health check. And the purpose to use the example of p**nstars is to highlight the fact that they are an internet phenomennons, just like news of this sort, and not every internet phenomenon is worth giving a shit about.
              P.S. I know you are not going to get the gist.

                • I don’t know why you both like porn stars too much. And Yes I have information and information is always good.

                  I don’t argue with girls because it is always better to head bash than arguing girls, no one can win from them. :)

  • This is exactly how veena’s stunt became popular. People started to post about veena, because others were doing it. And the trend is likely to continue. I just want to say that not all internet phenomenons are worth a coverage. Thx

    • Actually there is another different reason. The perception of Pakistan is that it is a country that oppresses women. So many stories come out of Pakistan about village rapes and honor killings and stuff like that. And what happens about that? Our president stand up and say “oh they just want to get visas to canada” http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/4251536.stm Look at story about white corolla rape gang in Karachi this year and how the raped women had to withdraw their cases because the police and media forced them to.

      What makes this sotry different is because Veena Malik STOOD UP AGAINST someone who people think is the “power” in PAkistan. It is the same reason Mukhtaran Bibi is famous. Not because village council ordered her raped but because she refused to kill herself and instead STOOD UP AGAINST village.

      Well, this is the Pakistan we live in. This is the Pakistan we display to the outside world. Not a country of peace or justice but a country that does not care about its own women. No woman asks for rape but Pakistani media and police find ANY EXCUSE to blame women if they are raped even if someone break into their house and rape them.

      So when people stand up against this culture, they get noticed.

  • I am pakistani, i liked this video. she is awesome. You think it’s full multinational propaganda after all.

  • What is this hypocrisy of yours Aamir?
    You are covering a non Telecom/It issue but you refused to cover the unethical ADs of Sprite and Nokia Textciting Mobile?
    Now Mobilink won’t come all time to pay you for negative propaganda like you did to Djuice!

  • ADMIN ,is tarah ki news har jaga mil jai gi plzz aap apney regular vistors ko DISAPPOINT kar rahay ho ,ye IT aur TELECOM blog hai is liye plzz ye “chatkhaarey dar” news daal kar apney regular vistors disappoint na karein plzZZzZzZZzzz

  • Talal, not even a single article of yours is worthy enough for Telecom/IT news readers.
    But still, you are better than hypocrite Aamir Aata.

      • Who is talking to you Shahid?
        Stop murmuring, You and your words aren’t of any worth to me.

        [Comment Edited]

        • — Who is talking to you Shahid?

          We are posting in a public forum, not private messages. I can reply to anyone I want to, same with you or anyone else.

          — You and your words aren’t of any worth to me.

          Pot kettle black.

            • Lets not forget the reason you made your comment PUBLIC instead of emailing Aamir Aata about post: you want to humiliate him in PUBLIC.

              You have failed. Be smarter next time.

  • I think Veena is a Technology figure, thats why she is here on propakistani. A forum dedicated to “Technology and Telecom News from Pakistan”. Earlier i read “Veena Malik making history on Twitter”, and now this?

    Hey wait a min. are you guys changing the prime object of this site???

  • Sorry to say but Aizaz always ruins the forum by his non-sense, disgusting comments towards others but somehow he escapes moderators eyes probably because he is too much flattering towards them in his initial posts.

  • Leave the babe alone, please. I think we should develop a habit of looking at our own mistakes rather than pining fingers at others.

  • This is a useless post please remove it.
    Admin do you have some policy to filter posts?

    People come to your forum for IT and Telecom news but what are you trying to project here.

    Please make this forum/blog clean and not like a commodity who use celebrities to sell their products.

  • ADMIN jab itnay loog keh rahay hain tu aap ye post delete q nahik kardetay ,is tarah k “CHICHORAY” post daal kar aap SASTI shuhrat q hasil karna cha rahay ho.thori saharam karo admin @ ,ye IT BLOG hai aur aap SASTI aur GHATIYA shuhrat k peechay parey ho @@

  • This is not Telecom or IT news, if you wish to keep your audience then it is my advice that you do not deviate from your objective.

  • I saw the “Veena Malik and the Mufti” Clip, being repeatedly Aired, Published, and TV-casted here, and elsewhere AROUND the world these days … and have this to say …

    That …

    “I too cannot find any vast Cultural “DIFFERENCES” between the Political, Social, Military, Economic, Historical, OR THE India Act 1935 stipulated Administrative and Judicial, Ethnic, Racial, Demographic, Geographic, Personal Conduct, or Raag AND Ragni, Art, and Literary BASED differences … between the “Cultures” of INDIA and PAKISTAN … Which per se, COULD Justify, “Division, of the South Asian Sub-Continent” in 1947 … Into Pakistan and India … Surprised ?

    Look at Veena Malik, she dresses up, talks, responds, and behaves like any Bharati Hindu woman would do, under similar “Circumstances” as she said were hers … five sisters to marry off, never an un-Islamic word … etc..

    I have also seen the Press’ Published Pictures of the so called Ustad, Ghulam Ali, the famous Pakistani Mirasi, of “CHUPKE CHUPKE RAAT DIN, AANSOO BAHAANA YAAD HAI ” fame … shamelessly worshiping a Hindu Deity, perhaps KALI MAI, in a South Indian Mandir !

    Besides, these two, I understand, Pakistani Qawwals, like Rahat Fateh Ali, [I never knew, till he was caught by Indian Custom, that a Qawwal could earn that kind of Dollars for just singing Qawwalis in India] … Actors, Poets, Writers, Journalists, Artists and Dancers … queuing up at the Indian Embassy … begging for Indian Visit Visas … !

    I have also seen and heard Adnan Sami Khan on Cable TV, talking a lot of anti-Pakistan crap and nonsense… and begging, for exemption of his Bombay Property from Foreign ownership Act of India.

    Besides the ENTERTAINERS … There are also these NATIONALIST [Indian and its Allies Proxies] POLITICIANS … Baluch, Sindhi, Seraiki, Pashtun, and now the Kasmiris … talking about Quaid e Azam’s Mistake of making the Division of the Indian Sub-Continent possible, for creating Pakistan … because they make a better Package than Rahat Fateh Ali, whenever, they speak against Islam and Pakistan !

    And of course, we never get to see the true faces or hear about those among the so called Pakistani Patriots, who are digging at the very Roots of Pakistanism, with their “Almia” Takia Kalaamed Politics, and secret Activities… or until we saw Black Water’s Raymond Davis in action …

    Thus… to make a long story short, in fact there are few Differences, between India … and a secularized Pakistan … that are in the way of the creation of an AKHAND BHARAT of Chandra Gupt Moriya !

    In Planning of the more famous anti-Pakistan organizations, such as India’s RAW, Israel’s Mossad, besides the American CIA … and the not so famous Think Tanks … and other “Agencies” …

    The dismemberment of Pakistan has to be effected … first, by destroying the “Idealogical” Basis of Pakistan, by then “Cultural Invasion” of an Islamic Pakistan … with concurrent Destruction of Pakistan’s Infra Structure, Trade, Industry, Law and Order … all these in a well Coordinated Action, will facilitate, God Forbid, the Planned Dismemberment of Pakistan.

    The Time Frame for a Coordinated Execution of the Destroy Pakistan Plan, of the Enemies of Pakistan … is between the years 2015 and 2025.

    These “Sheikh Bombaars” … so called “Muslim” Terrorists … and the Cultural Ambassadors of an Islamic Pakistan, drawn mainly from Hera Mandi; occupying the Pakistani Media … the Qadiani Human Rights Activists, the Academics, Intellectuals and other Secularized Groups in Pakistan … Together with Indian Agents Planted in Key Positions in Pakistan … having “Practical” help of Israel and its run Training, Money, Arms, and Planning, Facilities …

    These elements are targeting Pakistani Business, Trade, Law and Order, Peace and Security, Politics etc.. with Suicide Bombings, Targeted Killings and Corruption … All these Elements are Working towards the execution of Pakistan’s dismemberment Plan.

    Recently, a captured Suicide Bomber … “admitted” … That “he has been trained in IRAN” !!!!!

    This statement, is a part of indoctrination, in case a trainee is captured and interrogated, it is meant to widen the gulf of Trust between Pakistanis and brotherly IRANIANS … Its an Israeli feed, because, because, they hate and fear Iran … besides Pakistan.

    Thus, an illiterate, poverty stricken, and gullible boy was perhaps told this upon landing in Israel, that it was Iran … See how carefully and deeply it is all considered and planned.

    Poverty, or Money Addicted Pakistanis and Foreigners thus serve as their instruments … helped along by the local hired Politicians, and others purchasable individuals in Administration and businesses … doing the dirty spade work for their masters … the enemies of Islam and Pakistan.

    Thus … Patriotic Pakistanis at times are forced to think … ” IF THERE ARE NO DEFINING ‘DIFFERENCES’ BETWEEN INDIA AND PAKISTAN, WHATS THE SENSE OF HAVING A SEPARATE HOMELAND, CALLED PAKISTAN ? ”

    THE ANSWER IS …

    OF COURSE, THERE ARE VERY FEW ”CULTURAL DIFFERENCES” BETWEEN INDIA AND PAKISTAN … THUS, FOR ALL PRACTICAL PURPOSES, THERE IS NO HARM …
    ON THE ONE HAND, OF BECOMING MODERN, BROAD MINDED AND SECULARIZED MUSLIMS … AND ON THE OTHER HAND, ALLOWING THE “MAHA-BHARATIS” TO INVADE PAKISTAN’S ISLAMIC CULTURE … THROUGH SUCH MEANS AS CULTURAL AND LITERARY EXCHANGES OR SAMJHOTA TRAINS … BEFORE THEY INVADE THE GEOGRAPHIC FRONTIERS OF PAKISTAN.

    SO GET READY TO UNDERSTAND THE ENEMY’S THEORY, WORKING BEHIND ALL THIS ANTI-ISLAM AND ANTI-PAKISTAN ACTIONS …

    UNDERSTAND … THAT THE MOMENT WE SAY … ”LA ILAHA ILLALLAH, MUHAMMADUR RUSUL ALLAH ” … THERE IS A TOTAL SHIFT IN THE PAK-BHARAT PARADIGM … PAKISTANIS BECOME PAKISTANIS, AND BHARATIS BECOME THE INDIANS …

    THATS WHAT, MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS, WHO HAD OPTED FOR PAKISTAN, DID FOR LA ILAHA ILLALLAH … AND SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES, FAMILIES, HEARTHS AND HOMES, RELATIVES, AND WATANS … FOR CREATING AN ISLAMIC STATE OF PAKISTAN …

    REMEMBER … AS LONG AS LA ILAHA ILLALLLAH IS PAKISTAN, NO POWER ON EARTH, CAN SINGLY, OR WITH THE HELP OF OTHERS, DESTROY PAKISTAN …

    REMEMBER, IT IS POSSIBLE TO KILL PEOPLE … BUT THE WORD OF ALLAH IS ETERNAL …

  • Syed Hassan Shahid Bukhari, yiur comments are mine and of every true Pakistani. I agree with you and will further second your detailed reply by refering Indra Gandhi’s famous interview in which she proudly said that we don’t need physically capture Pakistan, as we have mentally captured them through our media. We need to build a strong bareer towards cultural invasion of india.

    Veena or any other of her breed these are dirty people and their aim is only money and fame… which she successfully cashed -:)
