Pakistan’s viral sensation and popular social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch has been murdered by her own brother. Though there are various speculations regarding the murder as well as the reason behind it, one thing is sure that the main culprit in the case is her brother.
The 26 years old model got instant popularity in 2014 with her viral video “How em looking?” This went to a whole new level this year, with her promise to strip if Pakistan wins the world cup. She openly expressed her wish to marry Ex Pakistani cricketer and politician Imran Khan as well as her love for Indian cricketer Virat Kohli.
She was also popular for posting salacious videos and statements on different social media channels, which his brother didn’t like. This is the reason, some people are also calling it a case of ‘honor killing’.
Like Poonam Pandey in India, she also promised to strip, if Pakistani team win the world cup. She had gained popularity for all her bold statements and videos. Her self-promotion videos had got more than 8 lakh views and likes.
It was also rumored that she will be a participant in next season of Big Boss. Though there was no confirmation on her end as she said that her participation depends on producer’s decision to agree on her terms.
The early news claimed that she was shot dead by her brother, but after investigation it has been reported that she was strangled to death. The real reasons behind murder are still unknown. Her brother Wasim is on the run after the murder.
Not just his brother, she used to get threating calls from various other extremist sections in Pakistan. After getting numerous threats from her brother for her videos and other content on Facebook, she had also requested the internal minister for security.
Her last post on Facebook was on July 4, which read, “At least international media can see what I am upto. How I am trying to change the typical orthodox mindset of people who don’t wanna come out of their shells of false beliefs and old practices.”
