The government of Pakistan recently revealed the list of 127 citizens who will be honoured with civil awards on 23rd March for their remarkable and distinguished service in various fields.
Mehwish Hayat is all set to receive the prestigious civil award Tamgha-e-Imtiaz–the fourth highest civilian award– for her marvellous performances on the Pakistani big screen.
But from the day this announcement was made, it became a topic of discussion on social media and made quite a buzz all around the country.
Despite being in the industry for over a decade and giving us a number of successful TV dramas and movies, Twitteratis lost their calm and a lot of people were concerned with WHY she’s being given this award.
Some suggested replacements for her and others stooped low enough to link her nomination for the award to political connections.
The ‘Load wedding’ actress came across this insulting post by a local website and took to her Twitter handle to shut them down. She demands a written apology for their repulsive behaviour otherwise legal action will be taken against them for defamation.
This is shameful https://t.co/7chd70ABKZ this is how you celebrate your artist’s success by vilifying their character?! This is libellous and defamation. Withdraw this article and post a written apology else legal action will be taken against this! https://t.co/sv1WzPdaCM
