Usman Basra calling Shafaat Ali a ‘meerasi’ initiates a much-needed debate!

This needs to stop NOW.

Despite the fact that we spend most of our day sitting in front of the TV screens, our utmost disrespect towards our artists reflects our hypocritic behavior. Recently such debate was followed by Usman Saeed Basra’s comment about Pakistani impressionist and comedian Shafaat Ali.

After the news of former PMLN leader Shehbaz Sharif testing positive for COVID-19 broke, Shafaat sent him best wishes and speedy recovery on his Twitter account. However, this irked spokesperson of the Punjab government and Secretary Information PTI Punja Usman Saeed Basra, who called Ali a ‘meerasi’.

Meerasi is a commonly used slur and a derogatory term used to refer to artists in Pakistan. This implied the profession to be less respectful.

Not stopping here, Basra went on to make another derogatory comment.

People from showbiz and journalist fraternity stepped forward in Shafaat’s support.

Artists have always played a significant role, particularly in the phases of hopelessness and gloominess. They entertain us with their performances, inspire hope with their stories, and make our lives better with their talent.

However, despite them playing a vital role in our lives and us following their every move, we hate to show respect to them publicly. We never acknowledge their efforts unless they are no longer with us.
