Recently a video clip surfaced over the web in which Ali Zafar and Shaan Shahid were seen dancing in the Wazir Khan mosque of Lahore. Netizens are disappointed as they consider this act as shameful; it is about being disrespectful to the holy place!
In the video we can see the two celebrities dancing along with the drum beats. We can also spot the Federal Minister of Science and Technology Chaudhry Fawad in the video. As soon as the video was uploaded on social media, it stirred a debate. Pakistanis are deeply concerned and they are condemning this act on Twitter and other social media platforms. According to people, playing song and dancing are un-Islamic practices and should be strictly prohibited in mosques.
The controversy has dragged not only the celebrities, but the authorities are under fire too. According to people, it is highly disappointing to see the industry’s well known-names being negligent enough to do such acts inside the mosque. Following are some of the enraged responses from Twitteraties:
We strongly condemn the ugly act of dancing and singing in Wazir Khan Mosque. Alas, those who violated the sanctity of Wazir Khan Mosque are still free.
