Advertisement featuring Nargis Fakhri sparks outrage online

Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri’s advertisement on the front page of one of Pakistan’s leading Urdu newspaper has created a stir over social media where people have condemned it by calling the advertisement “cheap” and “absurd”.

Many, including journalists, took to Twitter to condemn the “obscenity” of the ad that simply shows Fakhri lying down with a phone in her hand while donning a red dress.

Pakistani investigative journalist Ansar Abbasi was the first one to condemn the ad on the micro-blogging site while others later joined him.

Here’s what they have Tweeted:

Matiullah Jan: @AnsarAAbbasi you are right, her beautiful body curves have nothing to do with 3G phone and its ‘cheap price’. I fully agree with you dear.

Athar Ali Khan: Dayummm @NargisFakhri

Omno: Why did you dirty the newspaper by putting Nargis’sphotograph on it?

Muhammed Amer: @AnsarAAbbasi why newspapers are trying to be like playboy or weekend type of magazine? These kind of ads look good in magazine not on NP.

Mirza Lamer King: Today they have put Nargis’s image. Tomorrow they will show Sunny Leone.

Kadar Khan: @AnsarAAbbasi Front page ad looks absurd but corruption, loot and plunder of the government is acceptable.

Aleem Qadeer: Could have used a talent like @NargisFakhri in a much better way.

Nadia: Those offended by Nargis Fakhri’s curves on a paper will be the first to mentally measure a woman up, they see in real.
