Another actress in Pakistan fell victim to cybercrime and harassment after her personal photos and videos leaked online. The well-known Pakistani pop singer Rabi Pirzada sold her phone and someone decrypted her password, leaked her private photos and videos. After the dissemination of your intimate images online, these are they went viral and declared that he retires from the show.
میں رابی پیرذادہ شوبز سے کنارہ کشی اختیار کرتی ہوں۔ اللہ تعالیٰ میرے گناہوں کو معاف کرے۔ اور میرے حق میں لوگوں کا دل نرم کرے۔
وَتُعِزُ مَن تَشَاء وَتُذِلُ مَن تَشَاء#SaveaSoul
– Rabbi Pirzada (@Rabipirzada) November 4, 2019
I, Rabi Pirzada, leave the show. May God forgive my sins and soften hearts in my favor. Save a soul
Pirzada was recently in the headlines when he released a support song to the people of Kashmir, a region run by India, in which he wore a suicide vest. He also posted a video in which he is surrounded by snakes and threatened by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
People started an online campaign labeled #IAmRabiPirzada (I am Rabi Pirzada) to support it. The trend started Fouzia Gillani, Pakistani law student:
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

It is my choice to support Rabi Pirzada in this way. If people are not offended when they see porn (movies) then they should not be offended to see a naked woman who supports a cause. I am Rabbi Pirzada.
Thanks to everyone for your support.
He wrote in a Facebook post:
Nude pictures of Rabi Pir Zada were leaked by another person, however Pakistani people were cursing her instead of demanding an investigation against the person who leaked those photos and videos.
Just wondering after reading many women that why she took such photos.
There are several cases where men harassed woman by sending their nudes in women inbox. Then they don't feel shame but if a woman come up with those ideas then their so called values hurt.
It’s a hypocrisy and it should be ended now.
Someone leaked photos of Rabi Pir Zada naked, but the Pakistanis insulted her instead of asking for an investigation against who leaked those photos and videos.
I just wonder, after reading many women (who want to know) why they took those photos.
There are several cases of men who harass women and send photos of them to their inboxes. Then they are not ashamed, but if a woman comes up with these ideas, then her supposed values are affected.
It is hypocrisy and must end now.
Alishba Zarmeen, Pakistani living in Canada, tweeted:
Let’s demystify human body and take away slut-shaming. That’s the only way to move forward. Luckily, my entire business is built around the very concept & empowering women to embrace all they’re made of.

Demystify the human body and let go of shame. It is the only way forward. Luckily, all my business revolves around the concept itself and empower women to value what they are made of.
In solidarity with Rabi Pirzada and Qandeels (Pakistani model and actress) of the world. I am Rabbi Pirzada.
Another Twitter user thought it is not the best way to defend Rabi, and tweeted:
And this is the shittiest way supporting her.

There is nothing in your body that you should be ashamed of. I don't understand why more and more women always harass them for their body.
Rabi Pirzada has not done anything wrong. It is his life. It is your choice. What a shame those who insult her.
And this is the worst way to support her.
Farhan Virk, blogger and Pakistani doctor, tweeted:
رابی پیرزادہ کی حمایت میں لوگ کپڑے اتار کر اپنے مخصوص اعضا پر #IamRabiPirzada لکھ رہے ہیں۔ یہ کیا جاہلانہ طریقہ ہے کسی کی حمایت کا؟ ان لوگوں کا دماغ ٹھیک ہے؟
– Dr Farhan K Virk (@FarhanKVirk) November 3, 2019
There is nothing wrong with revealing your body. I don't understand why it's still taboo to show your beautiful body. I am Rabi Pirzada.
To support Rabi Pirzada, people are taking off their clothes and writing “I am Rabi Pirzada” in their private parts. What is this silly way to support someone? These people are not thinking well. Click on this tree and see this ignorance.
Twitter discussion leads to speculation
In Pakistan, the cinema has the support and support of the propaganda wing of the Public Relations between Military Services (ISPR). Asif Ghafoor, the CEO, is active on Twitter and supported a song in the Kaaf Kangana movie, ISPR project:
Pic 1. The item song is by an indian girl in the movie as per her role, you may watch movie to know the context.
Pic 2. It is neither at GHQ (GHQ is at Rwp not Islamabad) nor of an event organized for ISPR as such.
– Asif Ghafoor (@peaceforchange) October 28, 2019
Lord, if this is true, then tears of blood will be seen to see this irony.
Image 1. The song that comes out in the movie is from an Indian girl in the movie for her role, watch the movie to know the context.
Image 2. It is not in the headquarters of the Army (which remains in Rawalpindi, not in Islamabad) nor an activity organized by ISPR as such.
Rabi exchanged a tweet with the general director of ISPR for his support for a song from the movie. Dance or movie songs are undervalued in Pakistani society, in which actresses often make one or the other feel ashamed for showing their skin. The lyrics of the song criticize India and was a point of interest for Pakistani Twitter users.
Rabi embarrassed the CEO and tweeted:
– Rabbi Pirzada (@Rabipirzada) October 31, 2019
ISPR CEO defends Neelam Muneer's dance in the movie Kaaf Kangana – but there's a problem.
Very disappointing. Mr. General Director of ISPR, we are all wrong, but we never refuse to admit it or explain it that way.
HotChoti si baat.
Many Pakistani Twitter users are blaming ISPR's CEO, General Asif Ghafoor, for filtering private photos and videos of Rabi Pirzada. However, there are no direct links or proof that it is more than Twitter gossip.
On Twitter, a user comments:
she criticized asif ghafoor and her pictures and videos got leaked after 1 hours
– Maaz Siddiqui (@ m_siddiq7) November 1, 2019
Have I read out there that criticized the military? Is this correct?
He criticized Asif Ghafoor and his photos and videos leaked after a few hours.
leaks came after she criticized ghafoor for defending item song .. hence everyone doubting him
– Muhandis (@TheMuhandiss) November 1, 2019
Did Ghafoor show the video?
The leaks came after he criticized Ghafoor for defending the movie's song … but everyone doubts it.
The Rabi incident not only shows what the victims of a leak in Pakistan go through, it also highlights the hypocrisy and double standards of society as a whole.
