Mishi Khan advises caution
She implored that all women should take caution and stop sending intimate pictures and videos to even their “husband or fiancé”. “There is no need to document this at all,” she added.
She advised women to “be very careful” and “just say no”.
“If something like this happens once, it will leave a very bad impression.” The mark “will take years to wash off.”
Mishi Khan is an actress and host. She made her film debut in Nikkah in 1998. Her other film credits include Ghazi Shaheed and Janaan.
She was the star of PTV’s Uroosa in the nineties and was the host for Kishmish (1998) and Sehar Mishi Khan Ke Saath (2012).
On recent incidents targeting celebrities
Mishi Khan said she was “shocked” by the Samra Chaudhry cybercrime case.
Samara Chaudhry is a Lahori model and actress who is the latest victim of leaked videos.
The video, which is purportedly from last year, has a man’s face blurred. It was leaked online without Samara’s knowledge on social media earlier this month.
A Lahore-based gang is allegedly hacking into phones of celebrities and stealing intimate photographs. The gang then redistributes and sells these videos to international pornography websites.
The activities of the Lahore gang are illegal under the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act (PECA) in Pakistan as of 2016.
Former Pakistani singer Rabi Pirzada is another victim whose images got leaked online. The actress says that she sold her phone, with her pictures and data hacked from it. The photos went viral on social media and led to a slew of trolling.
Pirzada’s subsequent tweets under the hashtag #SaveaSoul followed. Soon after, supoortive tweets also poured in for her under the hashtag #iamrabipeerzada . The whole thing trended on Twitter as debates over invasion of privacy, revenge porn and indecency raged.

Its my choice to support #Rabipirzada in this way. If people don’t get offended by nudity while watching the porn then they shouldn’t even get offended to see a naked woman supporting a cause.#iamrabipirzada
Thank you everyone for support.❤️ pic.twitter.com/Y86516CUxD

Pirzada ultimately ended her entertainment career in a video announcement and said she was devoting her life to Islam.
Mishi Khan noted that lives and reputations were tarnished in the wake of the scandals. Perhaps more attention should be paid to the criminal gang which perpetuates these acts themselves than in blaming the victim.
