You may disagree with me on that but it is what it is! Qandeel Baloch is the real face of Pakistani young generation. We are all fake and and the fake she was. We are ashamed of our own culture, language and everything that belongs to us. We hide our identity and this is exactly what she did.
The very foundation of our nation is built upon mutually confronting ideas. In short we are a confused nation. I was moved to write these lines when I saw an Interview of Qandeel Baloch’s father with a NEO T.V. anchor Mr. Nasrullah Malik
At the end of the Interview at about 2:30 , the anchor Mr. Nasrullah Malik says that there is some issue with his language. This is shameful for all of us who are living in Punjab. Qandeel’s father was speaking Punjabi (the language of the soil) and the TV anchor was speaking Urdu (The language of UP/CP provinces of India). The NEO TV Network is based in Punjab, and the Mr. Nasrullah Malik hailing from Sarghodha graduated from Punjab University Lahore. Just imagine, if the Punjabi language is termed as “strange” by the Punjabis themselves then who would care about it.
When a Punjabi Kid goes to school in Punjab. He is told the very first day that language he and his parents speak at home is inferior and he would have to speak Urdu otherwise he would be fined. So the very first day, he learns a lesson without even being taught that he is inferior. if we see it in broader perspective, we all carry this complex from the school days to the death bed and as a nation we are all suffering from self hate syndrome. we feel inferior in our own dress. So, we hide our identity and strive to succeed by acquiring foreign languages and cultures.
This is exactly what Qandeel Baloch did. She hid her real identity and got fame on the social media.
So Qandeel Baloch is a real face of Pakistani young generation. We are all fake and and the fake she was.
