"If u closely appear at her face, u can see obviously she seems to be just like a prostitute," reads one more.
Other commenters decry her "slutty, porn star behavior" and "disrespect" for her country, and quite a few degenerate into full-on misogynistic abuse and bullying. The controversy Baloch whipped up, even so, went beyond her suggestive selfies video clips. She was also a provocative feminist, frequently speaking out towards Pakistan's patriarchal social norms and calling herself a "one-girl army."
Her images and videos were her way of thumbing her nose at Pakistan's patriarchal society. By dressing as she desired and flaunting her sexuality, Baloch believed that she was challenging the nation's repressive religious and social status quo. "At least global media can see what i am up to," she wrote in a July four post on Facebook with a hyperlink to a current BBC radio section about her. "How i am trying to alter the typical orthodox mindset of people who don't wanna come out of their shells of false beliefs and outdated practices." "As a women we need to stand up for ourselves," she posted on July 14. just a day in advance of she was killed. "I feel I am a modern day feminist.
I believe in equality… I don't assume there is any need to label ourselves just for sake of society." Baloch made yet another firestorm when she posted selfies with prominent cleric Mufti Qavi back in June. "When Qandeel Baloch met Mufti Qavi: A guideline on how NOT to understand Islam," read through the headline of the nation's Express Tribune information website. And she was in the spotlight once again in current days when it was unveiled she was previously married, and was currently estranged from her younger son. "I never accepted him as my husband in my heart or mind," Baloch explained in a recent interview with the Pakistani information web site.
explaining how her mother and father had married her off against her will when she was a teenager. "How I invested a 12 months and a half with him, only I know. And I only did it simply because of the youngster. Otherwise I wouldn’t have spent even one month with him." Baloch divorced her husband, whom she claimed was abusive with her, and set off to get started a modeling profession just before turning out to be an Net sensation.
She named her good results an act of revenge on her nation. "This patriarchal society is negative," she informed journalist Hufsa Chaudry. "Being a woman, think your self, how tricky it is to move all over as a lady in this society.
How many guys do you encounter who bother you?" Much less than a month prior to she was killed, Baloch approached authorities, asking for safety following some of her private identification documents had been leaked on social media. She had also been receiving death threats and was considering moving out of the nation. In spite of her fears, Baloch continued to upload her provocative images and her defiant feminist messages.
In her last Facebook post in advance of her death she wrote: "No matter how a lot of instances I will be pushed down under…I will bounce back. I will hold on obtaining and I know you will maintain on hating. DAMN but who cares." Sadly for Baloch, her very own brother cared enough to destroy her.
