    We feel ashamed as a nation that our authorities may choose to select the likes of Mehwish Hayat for the presidential award, which is supposed to be given to those who served our country & made Pakistan proud. What has she done except revealed pounds of flesh & sold ounces of any integrity through vulgar displays of her character! Why not those women of substance serving national interests even in the entertainment industry who starred in epic productions viewable across the board, by the families of masses, with lasting impressions not fracturing our shared moral values.
    Why not hundreds of women who are in social sector, in development sector and improving the lives of thousands of Pakistanis? Imagine her standing with the widows of Shaheeds and great scientists and academia who bother to come in a decent attire in such award ceremonies. Beides wondering what “performance” or participation in a national cause”, earn her this eligibility people are wondering what she will put on to be presentable, she probably doesn’t have a single decent modest attire.
    Sadly enough even if she gets the award, it will be weighing heavily on her as a bad decision of the usual clan of “enlightened socialites”, widely rejected by the national opinion.
