BeEducated.pk wants you to know when Minister of Human Rights Shireen Mazari called Momina’s cover of Ko Ko Korina song “horrendous”, through a tweet, Momina Mustehsan also returned the favour by responding with utmost criticism.
The singer who earned her fame in Pakistan through the coke studio platform, responded to Shireen Mazari’s tweet by saying that she has the right to freedom of expression. Momina wanted the Minister of Human Rights to be considerate towards her and other artists as they are only exercising their freedom of expression.
Apologies for hurting ur sentiments. It is ur right to judge us & express ur outrage,just like it was our right to exercise our #FreedomOfExpression. As our Minister of #HumanRights, u should appreciate @cokestudio for allowing us to express ourselves, esp if it was horrendous :) https://t.co/OkYdSE0jCz— Momina Mustehsan (@MominaMustehsan) October 22, 2018
Soon after, defending herself, Shireen Mazari said that she entitled to her own opinion as well. Meaning if Momina has the Freedom of Expression then so does Mazari. In her tweet, she questioned why bring the ministry into discussion which doesn’t have anything to do with it.
I gave my personal opinion which I am entitled to esp on a non pol issue having to do with music. To each his/her own! And why bring the ministry into it?! https://t.co/io9q0y6nAf— Shireen Mazari (@ShireenMazari1) October 22, 2018
Yet again Momina responded on the social media website, sounding a little apologetic this time, however still brought the office and her current responsibilities into the tweet.
I respect that ma’am - I apologized & acknowledge u had every right to judge & express outrage. I was only answering ur question of why coke studio allowed it. And as someone holding office, I’d hope u’d appreciate the allowance of freedom of expression- however bad it turned out https://t.co/5cX0Z8OaMl— Momina Mustehsan (@MominaMustehsan) October 22, 2018
The whole discussion came to an end when Shireen Mazari made it clear by tweeting “I did not like the song. End of Story!”
R u serious! Liking or disliking a song has nothing to do with anyone or any politics! It's a personal choice. I did not like the song. End of story. https://t.co/7v01spfVZQ— Shireen Mazari (@ShireenMazari1) October 22, 2018
