On 14th August, the Government of Pakistan announced a list of people who are to be conferred with Pakistan's highest civilian awards. Among these prestigious people, Sakina Samo has also been included. 

Sakina Samo is a famous Pakistani actress, producer, and director who has earned her reputation as a fierce and versatile artist in the entertainment industry of the country. Perhaps this is the reason why Sakina Samo has leaped to the defense of another fierce and vocal celebrity, Saba Qamar.

Sabar Qamar and Bilal Saeed have come under heavy criticism recently for their music video that has been shot at the famous Wazir Khan mosque, which is a religious site.

Things have taken a turn for the worse and are getting ugly now. Amid these chaotic times, Sakina Samo has come out as a voice of reason. 

The veteran actress took to her Instagram and published a post in favor of Saba Qamar. She said that it was not only a witchhunt and totally unfair to Saba Qamar, nut an insult to her talent.

She said:

"To @sabaqamarzaman with love. In solidarity with Saba, with great sadness I say. This is utterly wrong. She’s a fine artist and a kind person. She doesn’t do anything bad to anybody. She’s happy in her world.”

She added that she fully supports Saba Qamar and believes that her intentions were pure and she never meant to harm anyone's religious sentiments.

"I think it’s totally unfair to her and an insult to her talent. Things are greatly exaggerated. I believe her good intentions therefore I support her."

She implored the entertainment fraternity to speak up in defense of Saba Qamar and Bilal Saeed and warned them that whatever is being done to malign Saba Qamar's name, could easily be done to other actors in the future if they didn't speak up right now.

"Actor community should stand by her. If we don’t today then tomorrow it can be anybody’s turn. So beware my fellow actors."

 

 

It would be in the entertainment industry's best interest to remain steadfast and show unity in these troubling times and Sakina Samo has done well to initiate the display of unity for her fellow artists.
