Another Mur­der

Slogan - - READER'S THOUGHTS - Kosar Je­han, Ve­hari.

The mur­der of stage ac­tress and dancer Qis­mat Baig has ex­posed the vul­ner­a­ble state of per­form­ing arts in the coun­try. Un­for­tu­nately, it is al­ways easy to tar­get artistes and per­form­ers who are com­pelled to work de­spite un­favourable con­di­tions and threats. Par­tic­u­larly when it comes to fe­male artistes, they are even more at risk and are ex­ploited through­out their ca­reer by so-called art pro­mot­ers and cul­tural agents. The sit­u­a­tion is quite alarm­ing and needs to be ad­dressed im­me­di­ately.
