New Zealand Double Standards: Women’s England Tour Continues Amid Threat

women england tour continues and new zealand hypocrisy exposed
Image Source: crickettimes.com

The cricket tour between England and New Zealand has been going on for a while now. However, when it came to Pakistan, both countries had to pull out last minute. This was because of a bomb threat that the New Zealand team received via email. Just twenty minutes before the first ODI was about to start, the match was called off. As a result, both nations pulled out from Pakistan on the world tour and made their way ahead.

Now, it seems that, despite a second bomb threat, the teams are going to continue playing their tour. It seems that the New Zealand team received two threats. The first one threatened to place a bomb inside the hotel they were staying in. Meanwhile, the second one said that there would be a bomb on the plane back to New Zealand. After that, the teams were sent into lockdown and the investigations began.

New Zealand Hypocrisy Exposed

After much investigation and checking, the United Kingdom police revealed the bomb threat to be a hoax. Neither the hotel nor the plane was rigged with an explosive. The spokesperson for the New Zealand cricket team says that they did receive the threat in an email. This happened the same way when they were in Pakistan. However, in Pakistan, the match was called off and the teams pulled away.

The same investigation could have deemed the first threat as a hoax in our country too. A lot of this shines New Zealand in a hypocritical light because this is the second time it has happened. Why not cancel the match the second time around too? How does that hoax differ from this one? Maybe this was a hoax too, and they just pulled out of Pakistan for no reason.

Cricket Matches Ongoing

It really does highlight the double standards of New Zealand when they did not play in Pakistan. Threats are given everywhere but that doesn’t mean you play in one place and avoid playing in the other. If either of those threats were real, it would have been just as big a concern in the other place as was in Pakistan. Additionally, the email did not directly reference the women’s cricket team of New Zealand.

In Pakistan, the details of the threat were not shared with relevant authorities which again begs the question; if it was a hoax here too, why pull out? If it was a hoax there, why continue? Pakistani authorities put in multiple requests but were still denied access to the details of the threat. It would have helped everyone. Instead, both the women’s and men’s tours in Pakistan were cancelled.

If there is a one morning show host known for her not so witty remarks and inarticulate hosting, that is Nida Yasir. She also has been under the netizen’s radar for a long time now since everything she seems to trigger the viewers. Recently Nida was bashed by netizens and viewers over her views on the Formula 1 racing car.

A few days ago, Nida became the talk of social media when a clip went viral from her morning show. In the morning show from 2016, Nida invited two NUST students who invented a formula one racing car. While interviewing them, Nida didn’t seem to understand what a formula one car is. She then asked a few questions, which sounded rather dumb, furthermore making her look like she didn’t do enough research before interviewing the guests. Take a look at the clip below.

As soon as the clip went viral, people took to social media to share their two cents about the situation. While most of them criticised her for not knowing enough, some took her side and mentioned it was absolutely fine. Regardless, she gave people a reason to laugh and come out with exciting memes.

While people wondered about whether she liked her husband’s take on it or not, Junaid Khan asked her the same thing too. In a recent appearance in Good Morning Pakistan, the singer asked her response to the parody video. To which she replied,

“Yasir was not the only one involved; my entire family was involved in the filming of the video.” Further adding, “I didn’t find it cute.”  

Take a look at the clip below.

Nida Yasir Unfollows Husband On Social Media

Recently, the followers claimed that the host had stopped following her husband on social media. Checking now, we saw her following Yasir Nawaz. During the time she had allegedly unfollowed, the netizens started wondering whether it was the result of the parody video as she mentioned that she didn’t like it.

We still don’t know whether she took it to her heart or not but kudos to Nida for the way she faces criticism on a daily basis.

Arnab Goswami Accuses Pakistan, Ends Up In An Embarrassing Situation

Image source: scroll.in

So-called Indian journalist, news anchor, Arnab Goswami came under intense fire when he made some baseless comments with full confidence. On his show where there were two analysts, one from the Indian side and the other, from Pakistan, as expected, he was on the offensive. Instead of taking a neutral ground to let the educated people talk, he chose to give his two cents only to end up embarrassing himself.

Read More: Meesha Shafi Has A Witty Message For Indian Media

The situation at hand

What had happened was that in making accusations, Arnab said that Pakistani intelligence was staying at Serena Hotel, Kabul, on the fifth floor. Before the Pakistani analyst could say anything, he told him that the claim was irrefutable because he could even justify what they had for dinner. When you make a claim with so much confidence, you really do not leave anything up for speculation. However, things went sideways when the claim turned out to be not baseless but rather standing on air. As it turns out, Serena Hotel, Kabul does not have more than 2 floors.

To be on fifth, you literally have to be standing on air.

Arnab Goswami Memes

Before Pakistanis could even take the lead, it was the Indian who began trolling the anchor for his ignorant accusation. In terms of an ill-researched interview, he definitely won against Nida Yasir. Let’s take a look at some of the best memes, shall we?

A certain Priya shared the receipt of purchase of traditional Indian food, paneer and dosa. She trolled Arnab saying that this was a legit food bill. It was titled Serena Tiffins. Well, if the fifth floor of Kabul Serena magically appeared in Hyderabad India, then it was surely a legit food bill. Hilariously though, comments showed that people took the joke at face value and believe it to be legit.

Anti-Modi, Indians also took the opportunity to make memes about their Prime Minister with the matter at hand.

Now that, Serena Hotel has gotten the publicity for its 5th floor, they might just start constructing it; you never know.

But hey, one should not look down on ISI. They could definitely be using stealth technology.

Stealth technology or not, Arnab Goswami has misfired. But considering, even his countrymen do not consider him reliable, does his ignorance really make that much difference?

Men Or Women: Who’s Better At Giving Directions And Why?

You all must have heard it by now: whenever people see a confused driver on roads, they assume it must be a woman. This stereotype has been operational for many years now and people have started digging into it. The reason why men may be better at navigation is – as expected – unpleasant.

What Has Been Discovered?

Scientists at University College London were working on a test for dementia when they made these findings. The findings do suggest men are better at navigating however, there is a reason beyond women’s control when it comes to why they can not. The reason to do with years of discrimination and unequal opportunities only. It is not as if it is an innate inability of women to navigate better.

Researching Through A Game

The researchers used a computer game, Sea Hero Quest, through which they were researching. The game has over four million players all over the world. Sea Hero Quest is a nautical adventure to save an old sailor’s lost memories. When you play the game, it anonymously records your sense of direction and also your navigational ability. When researchers used this game in men and women, men always performed better.

Read more: Study Proves That Women Are Better Drivers Than Men

The Findings and What They Suggest

By looking at the World Economic Forum’s Gender Gap Index, the researchers think they can get to the reason. This Index is important because it studies equality in areas in education to health and jobs to politics. They found that in the countries in which there is greater equality between men and women, the difference between men and women’s performance is very small on the spatial navigation test. However, where there is a high inequality, the difference between men and women becomes much bigger.

This shows that the culture people live in has a huge effect on their cognitive abilities. According to their results, Denmark, Finland and Norway have the best navigational skills. Moreover, they have found that a person’s sense of direction constantly declines after the teenage years. Additionally, people in wealthier countries are also better navigators.

How Is This Related To Dementia?

Since the game test’s a person’s memory through their navigational skills, it is used for dementia’s research also. Being lost or disoriented is one of the first signs of the disease and researchers are trying to raise awareness about it.

Is There Something As Overdressing?

There definitely is and Muneeb Butt is one of those rare people who have the ethics to change their clothes when they do feel it.

For this purpose, the traffic police department is introducing measures to facilitate more and more people. If they accommodate the citizens’ rights, they will be better equipped to safeguard and guide the citizens’ rights on the roads.

9Lines Brand Receives Backlash For Using ‘Old People’ As Props

Unethical Campaigns; When Will Brands Stop?
Image source: https://www.9lines.store/

When it comes to marketing, brands will resort to anything to sell their product. The quest to get their products viral and sold has made the brands turn a blind eye to the most serious issues. Exploiting the marginalised community or using people as mere props has become a practice observed by even the biggest brands. However, the question is, what is the standard when it comes to such campaigns? Who comes out with the idea? Are these people being paid for sitting and posing in the same position for hours? Last but not the least, is this practice ethical or unethical? The question was asked after the recent campaign of 9Lines.

9Lines 

9Lines is a Pakistani brand known for its vibrant and funky accessories and clothing lines catered to all age groups. They offer a myriad of products from clothing to shoes, bags, jewellery and office accessories, including note pads, water bottles, wall frames and more. Their target audience is someone who likes to stand out in the crowd as they offer significant patterns with solid colours and trendy cuts. Their vibrant colours and aesthetically pleasing social media handles make the brand look hip and cool.

Unethical Campaign 

However, a recent campaign has the brand under fire. The latest collection of the brand showed the models in vibrant outfits. While the models posed for the photos, the background showed poor and older adults sitting there as props. Ever since the pictures were released, the brand has been getting backlash over the latest campaign. However, as soon as the issue was highlighted, the brand’s Instagram management took off all the pictures which showed elderly and poor people. Unfortunately for the brand, the photos had already gone viral by that time.

Take a look and let us know what you think.

Previous Instances 

This is not the first time something like this have surfaced on social media. In 2018, a Pakistani clothing brand made headlines when they used Masai tribe members as props or decorations for their models during a shoot.

A few weeks ago, an Indian influencer was called out over using poor people as aesthetics in her pictures. As she wore an outfit from Sabyasachi X h&m collaboration, she posed for pictures while standing in front of poor people. Many people took to social media to call her out. They also explained that how this practice is taking the focus off of the issues of marginalized community.

In a country where most of the population falls under poverty line, making poverty an aesthetic is insensitive; not to mention the lack of employment opportunities. Only if brands act a little more responsibly, they can use such people for actual work and pay them accordingly, which would be much beneficial for them in the long run.

The hype of the Noor Mukadam case has somewhat faded away much to the disappointment of Noor’s family. On July 20th, Noor died brutally, allegedly at the hands of Zahir Jaffar. She was assaulted, raped, murdered, beheaded, and her dead body and head was kicked around.

Noor Mukadam Case

In the beginning, most Pakistanis were actively following the developments in the case. Probably that is why Zahir Jaffer was arrested on-site and has stayed in physical and judicial remand ever since. But when more trending incidents occurred like that of Minar-e-Pakistan, the Noor Mukadam case took a backseat. The decreased interest by the public – could that have delayed justice? We do not know. But Noor Mukadam’s sister sure has spoken up.

Noor Mukadam’s sister

The sister said that while they are going through unimaginable loss, they want to ensure, no other family has to endure similar suffering. For this reason, they have arranged for a candlelight vigil in front of the Islamabad Press Club from 4:30 pm to 7 pm on September 22, right before the hearing. The idea is to register support for the cause so that authorities take swift action against the accused.

Having a vigil right before that tells the authority that we have not forgotten Noor. This is more of a reason why a huge crowd needs to turn up. The larger the crowd, the more the impact.

Power to Noor’s family

Considering the amount of loss, Noor’s family has faced, it is empowering to see the family stand firm in the face of the rich and the powerful, and stand their ground. As they stay and protest against delayed justice, hopefully, action will be taken. And when it does, it will serve as a reminder to all the potential Zahir Jaffers who have the tendency to exploit their privilege. They will have to think a thousand times before committing criminal acts. But to get there, we need to do something now!

We need to rally behind the family of Noor Mukadam and register our voice against crime. In case we choose to not do it, even now when Noor is beheaded and her killer still alive, then the death of the next Noor Mukadam will be on us.
