Many, including journalists, took to Twitter to condemn the ‘obscenity’ of the ad that simply shows Nargis Fakhri lying down with a phone in her hand while donning a red dress, the Express Tribune reported.
Pakistani investigative journalist Ansar Abbasi was the first one to condemn the ad on the micro-blogging site while others later joined him.
Here’s what they have tweeted:
Abbasi: My strong protest to top Jang group management for this absurd front page ad in today’s Jang.
Matiullah Jan: @AnsarAAbbasi you are right, her beautiful body curves have nothing to do with 3G phone and its ‘cheap price’. I fully agree with you dear.
Athar Ali Khan: Dayummm @NargisFakhri
Omno: Why did you dirty the newspaper by putting Nargis’s photograph on it?
Muhammed Amer: @AnsarAAbbasi why newspapers are trying to be like playboy or weekend type of magazine? These kind of ads look good in magazine not on NP.
Mirza Lamer King: Today they have put Nargis’s image. Tomorrow they will show Sunny Leone.
Kadar Khan: @AnsarAAbbasi Front page ad looks absurd but corruption, loot and plunder of the government is acceptable.
Aleem Qadeer: Could have used a talent like @NargisFakhri in a much better way.
Nadia: Those offended by Nargis Fakhri’s curves on a paper will be the first to mentally measure a woman up, they see in real.
Malik: Shame on Express & Jhang? for showing Nargis fakhri.
