A video of the actress is going viral on the internet in which she can be seen talking about how humiliated she feels being a Pakistani.

All this while, Saba could be seen going emotional, with her eyes full of tears. She goes on to say that she realized the position of Pakistan in the world at that point of time.

The video is a snippet from her interview with a talk show titled ‘Ek Nayi Subah With Farah’ on A-Plus TV, a leading entertainment channel of Pakistan. During the interview, Saba also raised her voice against the brutal rape and murder of Pakistani girl Zainab Ansari, whose body was recently recovered from a heap of trash five days after she went missing.
Deeply pained by the horrific incident, Saba appealed to everyone to not wait for help or rely on police and instead take action themselves. She urged all the woman to stand up for themselves and train their daughters to defend themselves against abuse. Here is another stirring excerpt from Saba Qamar’s interview:

It hasn't happened all of a sudden. Pakistan has worked hard to earn that reputation right from its birth onward. Sorry for Saba.

Saba should tell her govt to stop harboring terrorists let alone be the Mecca for terrorism… airports should check their passports thoroughly. 🤷🏻♀️
