Who Deserves More Attention- Momina Mustehsan or Khadim Rizvi

Ko Ko Korina from Coke Studio Season 11- a song which has got on the nerves of the nation. What was a mere rendition of Ahmed Rushdi’s hit song from the 60s by Momina Mustehsan and Ahad Raza Mir became a matter of human rights and debate on freedom of speech?

Ko Ko Korina Debate Between Momina Mustehsan and Shireen Mizari

Ko Ko Korina of Coke Studio was no less than bliss for social media brigade who got meme-worthy stuff. Bloggers and admins didn’t let the opportunity of creating some humor on the expense of Momina Mustehsan and Ahad Raza Mir. Apart from memes aimed to criticize the song sarcastically, listeners shared some genuine concerns regarding this song. And, these also included some notable personalities like journalists and politicians.

Earlier, there was a debate between lovers and haters of Coke Studio Season 11’s version of this song. Later, when Shireen Mizari expressed her views on the cover and Momina Mustehsan jumped in to defend it as a freedom of expression, things took a twist.

Here came Momina Mustehsan to defend herself.

From here began an endless debate which offered Twitterati a whole new topic to discuss.

So, probably it was the word massacre the hit the singers. They didn’t object on Minister for Human Rights giving her opinion but raising the question on why they were allowed to sing this song in first place.

Momina Mustehsan also clarified her stance.

The discussion didn’t remain limited between Momina Mustehsan and Shireen Mazari. It became a matter of heated debate. Twitterati remained busy talking on this issue with the trends like #MominaMustehsan and Ko Ko Korina. It is to be noted that Momina is already among the most researched Pakistani celebrities on Google.

Why Momina Mustehsan’s Song Why Not Khadim Rizvi’s Statements

For many users, Pakistani Twitterati could have found better things to discuss than Ko Ko Korina by Momina Mustehsan and Ahad Raza Mir. These things can be issues related to peace and stability in Pakistan. Usually, no one bothers to talk about them because they fear being killed.

Zarrar Khuhro, the host of a Dawn News Program Zara Hut Ke, pointed out how religious clerics like Khadim Hussain Rizvi were openly threating judiciary and no one was daring to point out towards such a sheer absurdity.

Zarrar who never keeps from talking about the real issues that the media doesn’t care to bring in limelight keeps us reminding us what are problems that social media brigade must be concerned about the most.

It is a fact that Pakistan is still suffering from the issue of religious fundamentalism, the clerics are free to issue fatwas against anyone, and no one dares to question them not even judiciary. But, for our social media users, the most important thing is whether singing a Ko Ko Korina cover comes in freedom of speech and to what extent someone should be allowed to criticize it.
