Mehwish Hayat is one of the most prominent actresses in Pakistan. The Pride of Performance winner has always been vocal about the issues and causes that matter to her. Social media can be a toxic place at times when it depicts the misogynist mentality in the society. Recently someone posted a video of some girls enjoying during an all girls gathering. The video was made from the mobile phone camera and someone posted it on the internet asking people to comment if it was right or wrong.
It is a shame in today’s day and age that nowhere and nothing remains private. Let these girls have fun in the knowledge that they can do so in privacy without judgement.— Mehwish Hayat TI (@MehwishHayat) November 28, 2019
Mehwish Hayat instantly called this cyberbullying out and commented,
‘It is a shame in today’s day and age that nowhere and nothing remains private. Let these girls have fun in the knowledge that they can do so in privacy without judgement.’
Cyberbullying and the breach of private space is a common issue on the internet these days. Where social media has raised awareness among the masses regarding their rights of the freedom of expression, it has also created a generation of trolls who would post and comment on anything just for the sake of retweets and likes. This also exhibits the self-righteous and holier than thou behavior which Mehwish Hayat effectively called out.
Mehwish Hayat is one of those actors who realize their influence in society and the social responsibility that comes with it. She was in the news for raising voice on the image of Pakistanis and Muslims portrayed in the international cinema. She visited various international platforms to voice her opinion regarding this issue. Mehwish Hayat also raised the issue of Hockey stadiums and players suffering neglect in Pakistan. Her efforts were acknowledged and the government decided to solve this issue. Mehwish Hayat is a Pride of Performance winning actress which is considered the highest civilian award in the country.
