FIA comes to the rescue of Alizeh Shah over viral smoking video

Privacy invasion

It is a wonder how the social media networks that were meant to share informative and positive aspects of our lives have now turned into a monster that is out to get to some people, if not physically, then mentally and emotionally. A few days back, a video of actress Alizeh Shah smoking in a car got viral. As expected, the viewers and trolls were quick to storm in with their judgments and hate speech and started moral policing for promoting the “European culture”. But looks like Alizeh is not keeping up with the trolls this time as she shared a video message from the Head of FIA Cyber Crime, Sindh, Imran Riaz, addressing the issue of recording and filming anyone without their consent. The video stated, “Taking anyone’s picture or recording their video without consent, uploading, sharing, tweeting, re-tweeting it on any social media platform, like it has happened in Alizeh Shah’s case, comes under the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act, 2016. It is a crime punishable by three years in prison or rupees one million fine or both. So please be careful.” However, he did not mention if the actress is seeking legal action against the person who filmed her.
