Qandeel Baloch’s sudden death shook the whole of Pakistan’s entertainment community and the recent celebrity to open up about her murder is the rockstar, Ali Zafar.
In an interview with the Bombay Times, Zafar provided some eye-opening thoughts for all men and revealed how violence against women needs to stop immediately.
“Women have been mistreated for a long time in this part of the world. The kind of respect that we, men, need to impart to women is lacking to a great extent. Why should they even have to ask for equality and their rights? It’s their birthright, so why do they have to fight for it? We, men, need to realize and give the respect that women, daughters, mothers and wives deserve”, he said.
What is more, the singing sensation divulged that he is educating around 100 young girls as he is a staunch supporter of women empowerment.
“I feel strongly for this cause, but I want my actions to speak for what I stand for. I am taking care of the education of 100 girls and I hope to carry forward the cause of standing by women and educating them”, he added.
Earlier, the singer-turned-actor had also tweeted about Qandeel’s honor killing.
If women started killing us to protect their honour, a lot of us would be dead!

The star also paid a heart-warming tribute to the Sufi singer at Lux Style Awards 2016.
