Reportedly, Pakistan authorities took action after the news channels aired the video, criticising her act of lip-synching to an Indian song while wearing a cap with country’s flag.
Several users on social media platforms criticised the authorities for taking an action, while many justified by saying conduct and other rules. Recently, country’s anti-graft body launched an investigation in a matter of a Polish girl dancing on a Pakistani airline plane to celebrate the country’s Independence Day. Draped in the Pakistani flag, she reportedly did a rendition of ‘Kiki challenge’.
“This is truly absurd. Moral policing of employees is not your job #ASF. She in only your employee. You don’t own her. What she does at home is none of your business. Wish she would for unfair dismissal, (sic)” wrote one user on Twitter supporting the girl.
While justifying the action, one user said, “uniform has a sanctity, it is worn during duty, and such undisciplined attitude cannot be tolerated during duty. #ASF has a decoram like any other security force, and its officers and members are bound by its rules and regulations.”
