A video of Bilal Saeed engaging in a physical fight against a man and a woman went viral yesterday. Many shamed the artist for physically abusing the woman. The Baari singer topped Twitter trends after thousands of users reacted to his video. Bilal responded to the video and said there’s “no option than to react when [a person’s] safety is jeopardised”.
The Punjab Auqaf and Religious Affairs Department has imposed a ban on shooting of films and dramas in mosques and shrines, especially the cinematography featuring women. The notification comes after a video shoot at Wazir Khan Mosque by actors Saba Qamar and Bilal Saeed garnered a great deal of criticism from the public and clergies alike.
