Sunday & Olympus FACE of 2006 – More than a face!

We have received countless mails about the recent Sunday & Olympus FACE of 2006 contest held by Daily Times where one of the front-page models, Neha, was judged the winner.

Could someone please explain to us how come these images published by the Sunday Magazine (Daily Times) celebrate the FACE of 2006?

If nothing else, the latest photoshoot of our (navel-show-off) model, Neha, leave little to our imagination and prompts us to think if the organizers and workforce at Sunday Magazine were so drunk or high that they publicized the campaign as FACE of 2006 when it should very well have been BODY of 2006!

Perhaps, we should inquire from their Chief Editor, Mariam Mushtaq (mariam@dailytimes.com.pk) and their Fashion Editor, Moeen Pal (moeenpal@dailytimes.com.pk) as to what is the success funda behind this campaign.

Good or Bad, Acceptable or Vulgar… You decide!

    VIVA LA FLESH, ladies and gents! This is what you get for giving a complete free hand to media and fashion in an Islamic country. We are in line to become the next modern Turkey! Shame on neha and Sunday

    What I dont understand is that why cant these women model WITHOUT sporting rags on their so toned bodies? If you want to model, do it by all means but for goodness sake look around you and see where you are living and coming from!!! This is Pakistan! We might be progressing towards prosperity but our people are still the very conventional and traditional folks and always will be! Respect your culture, dont rebel against it!

    Somehow, the image of a woman from the sub-continent (esp from Pakistan) dressed in such micro-garments seems very unsettling to any average Pakistani. So does that mean we should change our point of view for the handful of these shameless beings? Are we to let our daughters, mothers, and sisters be seen on the streets in such fashion as above? Should we start approving such norms? NEVER. This is a mockery of not only our Islamic ideologies but also womanhood as it is. How many of us would have liked it if our daughter was the one in these pictures instead of her?

    I would have never imagined 5 years ago that the fashion scenario back in Pakistan would turn so shameless. What are we proud of here? Sexy legs and toned abs? Supple breasts and a suggestive disposition? What is the rate for in the market for this model these days anyways? Have atleast some fear of Allah in your heart. He’s watching all this and will hold you responsible for exploiting and displaying your body in such crude and unlady-like manner. Shame on you Neha! May Allah guide you towards your betterment soon.

    We should refer such sort of obscenity to the hard liners sitting in Lal Masjid and I am sure hardly any one will object if they do something about these women. The blame goes to us for not objecting to this, to the government for their version of enlightened moderation, and to the fashion industry for misusing the freedom given to them to promote such vulgarity in our country.

    I am in shock! firstly this doesnt really show her face – so i dont think she has won fairly..but mainly because this is in a Pakistani Newspaper! I have always assumed Pakistan would progress but not to this level… you are officially on par with us Aussies…

  12. April 24, 2007 at 12:13 pm

    As stated above in one of the comments, Pakistan is and shall always remain a conservative society with stress on traditions and modesty. Such practices will not take us too far on the road of progress when there are so many avenues being neglected that could have massive potential and bring a lot more recognition to our country and its people. Displaying your assets online or in a glossy magazine and thinking it is cool and ‘IN’ is dispicable and unacceptable in our society. Those who indulge in this practice know that but unfortunately, that is where the bucks stop. Magazines filled with men and women (old and young) sipping alcohol, dressed in bare-minimum with their eye-pupils the size of pennies. Models displaying all they have to the eyes of millions to gain what? Fame and publicity? The only thing that makes them different from a professional working the streets is that they have money and can make their choice of clients. We seriously need to refresh our cultural and traditional values because in these uncertain times, we are losing them completely. What is next in line? Nudist colony in a small cozy corner of the spanking new Gawadar beach?

    Time to sit up and take notice has long gone. It’s time to GET UP and DO SOMETHING about it !

    she’z hot. 😛 but aside from that, yes, i agree that face should not be confused with other things and this is unfair competition.

  14. April 24, 2007 at 12:16 pm

    i’ll agree with haris and hamza here.

    certainly unfair, but she’s hot.
    because ‘hot’ sells. i’m pretty sure all this competition was meant to do was sell more copies to pubescent teens and sex starved gardeners. what the hell does FACE of 2006 mean anyway?

    i’m not one to comment on whether it’s islamic or not, but its upto the model to decide whether it’s decent. but i’ll say that in a country as pseudo-liberal and quasi-conservative as pakistan, this is sheer madness.

    i’m sure someone with a 10 inch beard from lahore is going to ogle over this and then comment to his friends about how obscene it is. that’s what needs to be corrected FIRST. erase the hypocrisy out of people.

    and i’m sure musharraf’s not even moderately enlightened about what he’s doing and what it’s effects are.

    loll… man this is nothing.. honestly there are bigger issues we are facing.. obviously looking at it from an uneducated perspective would be utterly devastating.. but raise the level of education and this dwindles itself into minute of the news… so really need to focus on the bigger picture first… im sure if u go to any arab country apart from saudi.. this is ultra common but please know that im not supporting it either.. all im saying is that this IS NOT THE ISSUE TO BE DISCUSSED! and for people who bring islam into the conversation please think about how islam stresses on the need of education and justice and economy and all that jazz…. islam isnt an abstract… its a reality you need to realize and chase from day to day.. good luck with spreading education:P

    i live in an arab country. sad to say that the hypocrisy here is much greater. but not nearly as evident.

    This is extremely unsettling. Lets take this up a notch higher. Lets pay her for glamour photography and nude modeling….from the looks of things she would readily do it.

    Like everything else our definition of being modern is extremely skewed. How do you explain to people that there is a difference between being modern and just plain shameless?

    So this is how its going to be…cling to ur own bad habits as a nation and borrow the worst habits of the western world to add to your existing portfolio. That will lead us to becoming a great nation!!!!

    Exactly the sort of thing that makes me want to switch sides to the lal masjid conservatives.

    Horrible beyond words, but the sad part is Sunday has always published typical “dumb blonde” level of stuff and even though many of us might denounce it, we always do pick the magazine up and check it out. There’s something wrong with us, that we buy cheap entertainment, as Ghamidi once remarked that its upto society to raise their standard of “zouq”

    Jacob how can you say this is nothing big? IT IS HUGE in a country like Pakistan. We believe in a conservative and conventional way of life by and large. It’s only when we ignore things like these that they begin to mass up and rear their ugly head in our society.

    the classic case of “y don’t they eat cake?”

  23. April 24, 2007 at 12:46 pm

    I was directed to view this by someone. I really am not surprised at all at the atrocity.

    Its a shame when people come to accept that such irreprensible acts do happen especially in Pakland. Its a bigger shame when people who live in Pakland, like myself, are the ones who accept it

    But thats how it is. This is how the nation is. The few educated and socially aware find this appalling, but we are truly overruled by the overwhelming majority who think either not at all or with their libidos.

    The fact of the matter is, that beyond spreading awareness and citing disapproval, there’s very little to be done here.

    Ray of hope:
    Pakland is after all a young nation. There are miles to cover in progress and education.
    Adopt a balance I say to those who posted above that they wish to switch sides to conservatism upon seeing this

    One extreme is not to be balanced out by another extreme.
    Balance.
    Moderation.
    Sense of self.

    Don’t condone it, but don’t go overboard in doing that.

    If showing off skin in ludicrous way is the key to get this face of the year (if face is of any importance here that I, like you, cannot see) then sure do they got some kick …!

    Westernizing is one thing and taking off your cloths in the thirst is another … It’s pure rubbish IMHO … I wonder if daily times’ office is safe till now … or maybe Jameya Hafsa ppl are too busy with their own problems …!

    meshal i agree with you to some extent. But the whole living in a cocoon thing is unacceptable. People tend to accept the modernisation in all its forms without regard to what the masses feel. If you think that you can accept such progress (within reason of course) it may not be applicable to nearly 90% of the pakistani population.

    anyone remember the netcafe video scandal fiasco thingy? that is what things like this lead to, when you have a massively sex starved mis-educated perverted population.

    pakistan is not the place for this. i dont care what neha wears at home. but when you’re putting your face (body) on the front of a publication that’s distributed as massively as Sunday, you have to be careful about who you’re offending. in a country like pakistan, you’re offending the majority

  28. April 24, 2007 at 1:16 pm

    is it my imagination, or face of the ear usually means a “new” face discovered in a particular year ?

    and yes … a face of the year award has nothing to do with the body … why emphasize it anyway ? ..

    What else could you expect from a confused nation like us? Students of Jamia Hafsa on one extreme and Face of 2006 (which is not an extreme, by the way) on the other – we are confused people. Our education, our values and our ideals are explicitly divided rather branded in classes – ‘enlightened’ elite, hypocrite intelligentsia and orthodox clergymen.

    Ishfaq Ahmad was a great thinker, Dr. Israr is a great scholar, Neha is a super model. What’s the deal?

    By the way, I am not referring these personalities as hypocrite, orthodox or wayward; I just could not find suitable names.

  32. 32 Muhammad Shahid
    April 24, 2007 at 2:08 pm

    First of all they could not really have said “Body 2006” so they said face. The intent was probably all along to show what is shown, because otherwise the picture could easily have been cropped. Now I do not like to give my religious views in public, because there is not a single topic that all mullahs would be able to be unanimous on, and quite frankly not that many people are interested in religion anymore. But I will put one question to everyone. Ever wonder how many rapes occur in Pakistan now? and why they happen? Decide for once, either stop giving every one this lust for western ‘freedom’
    Or give them the freedom along with the lust. No religion, just decide what you want. But i have to warn that what religion has to say may be more difficult but we are better off accepting it.
    Thats my personal view not my religious view.

    How many times do we publicly condemn such horrendous displays of flesh and similar practices? Barely! Our biggest excuse being that ‘yeh kaunsi nai baat hai?’ How long will we act blind and deaf to such moral issues and let our children follow up on the footsteps of these people. Whether it is a trade of flesh or an exhibition of it, it is WRONG and we KNOW IT. Those who think there are bigger fish to catch than this should seriously try sending their own daughters and sisters to be posed in such fashion and become the object of lust and desire for millions!

  35. April 24, 2007 at 2:48 pm

    to theplasticpoet… Neha is hot because unlike many common and average women in our country, we don’t need to make too much of an effort to undress her in our eyes. Unfortunately, because of the likes of her, women are scanned from head to toe as if they are a piece of candy that should be devoured on sight.

  36. April 24, 2007 at 3:28 pm

    HAHAHAHA this is just a big laugh… i mean the funniest thing is that neha is not even close to being a model that can be rated as A grade… this just shows the mental upbringing of our people… Sunday played on it… it simply cashed in on the perverted, shamelessly hypocritical mindset of the people…. i have no objection with wat neha does or wears… but the way she has allowed herself to be ‘sold out’ is simply pathetic!

  37. April 24, 2007 at 3:30 pm

    @Ayesha

    agreed. its a real shame too.

    pakistanis need to learn how to respect women. uske baad hi women’s right ka kuch ho sakta hai. i find womanhood holy, because of childbirth. the way a mother feels unconditional love for her child is just beautiful. its a shame women are looked upon as a commodity nowadays.

    for the record, i’m not a woman. not nearly. or a girl either

    As distracting as the pictures may be, by all the show of skin, I reckon the people who judged the whole Face competition thingy mabob were guys. Neha, or whoever the model is, is a tad bit on the skinny side, a bit flat for my taste.

    *sigh*

    Coming to the cribbing on hand……

    I just find it hilarious by the majority lot of ya who’ve posted up here. Pretending to be righteous and condoning it like it were the plague. That’s the problem with the backward and very narrow-minded generations of Pakistani’s out there. You see it’s very easy for you to ease back and crib about what’s wrong with everything out there. What have you done on a personal level to make a positive change and have actually achieved something. I find it highly unlikely that the majority of you out there reading this have ever even tried.

    It is beneath you to mop the floors at a fast food restaurant here in your homeland, but you’d gladly drop down to your hands and knees to scrub the floor and clean the toilets if you were somewhere out in the west.

    This complex that has afflicted our nation is that our hearts may be in the right place, but sadly we do not let our brains and rational side (if any) keep our emotions in check. The very same people who bitch about this so loudly aren’t saints either. My point to the bunch of you bleeding from the ears right now is learn how to tolerate others if they have a opinion or a view different from yours. The change you have to bring is within yourselves, then around your community.

    The identity crisis our generation is going through will only stop only if you bring a positive change within yourselves, i.e. to be more tolerant to new ideas, cultures and educate ourselves well enough in terms of your religion so you remain vigilant and remain on the path of your faith.

    In a nutshell for the “parhey likhay jahils” out there:
    1. Develop a tolerance level for new ideas or an opinion different from yours = PATIENCE
    2. Bring a positive change within yourself. Best advice would be adapt to your environment. Study the different cultures out there and adopt the “good” into your own character = Adapt and adopt the best out there.
    3. Once you’ve reached a level of enlightenment where you are in a position where you DO practice what you preach…..go ahead bitch and nag to the people around you till they submit to your migraine inducing wrath = Spread the love.

    4. Lastly, the above model is alright, but has a flat ass and has quite a bit of baby fat on her belly….she needs to tone up and beef up in the right places.

    Spread da love!

    Yours truly,
    Evil Llama.

    Well all i can say thats its very ironic that the girls from outside Pakistan are more Pakistani than the ones who are in Pakistan……. not even Snoop Magazine or ASIANA would post pictures like these of Pakistani girls in West.. shame.. Pakistan is dieing… or atleast it’s religion and culture is.

    Miss qurat ul ain you seem to be living in the world of blind and impotent if you think such attires are no big deal in Pakistan. Where abouts are you from anyways? Not Pakistan I hope because if the likes of you who support such indecency start following these trends, the country is certainly going to the dogs. Let me ask you this also. Do you wear such clothes in public? Does your mother or husband actually allow you to wear such body revealing clothes outside your room? If they do then laanat hai unn par Allah ki because they are as much a sinner as you are! I don’t think any one here is condemning this move by Sunday Magazine and Neha because they are jealous. In fact, the only possible emotion that can be seen is that of disgust and shame. May be it’s you who has been born in the wrong country.

  42. April 24, 2007 at 5:40 pm

    i don’t condemn it because i’m disgusted or shamed. I just find that its not sound media practice, and its derogatory.

    women’s rights is an issue that i absolutely LOVE talking about. neha’s selling herself, fine. its extremely unislamic, fine. ALL you have to do is turn away and not look. funny how when i was in lahore a lot of my religious-scholar-in-training friends would gawk at girls around defense and gulberg and then turn and say “dekho laanation ko”. that’s what needs to be changed. the media is not helping AT ALL with this sort of behaviour.

    i’ll say again, there is nothing wrong or indecent with the photos IN MY PERSONAL OPINION. but yes, pakistan is not the place for it. i find it quite funny really. udhar supreme court ka bura haal ho raha hai and here we’re arguing about media/decency/attire while simultaneously staring at the pictures.

    They say that sex sells everything….so does it indeed.
    There are any and every kind of humans…but there is an inherent characteristic in most of them , the lust to be famous. Understand the use of word ‘lust’.
    As most of the people are arguing over Pakistani image or whatever , but then again Pakistan is just an imaginary geographical boundary nothing else. Cultures are only a spill-over effect. Their impact on other cultures , which are also less dominant , is inevitable. Most of the people in our day and age want a ‘hot’ opposite sex person , so whats wrong if this is happening too? Its all connected in the end. Eventually everything is leading to another. I see chicks a bit more dressed than this in my university everyday. Well , so what?
    My friends , its a sorry state of not our country but of over all humanity. Every culture is becoming bolder and bolder…questioning and breaking down older norms and values. Nietzsche said , what is right today , will be wrong tomorrow. We just see this becoming truer and truer. Humans bring their own demise…its just a snapshot that you see. Film is just unwinding itself slowly…but surely. One day , we will get the full picture…but till then keep cursing….too bad , this is all what humans are left for.

    Neha is just one of the many rotten eggs of the fashion outburst infesting Pakistan today. I assure you she has done bolder shoots than these and she loves to flaunt ‘it’ ! That said, this is a positive initiative by you guys to actually talk about this on a platform. most of the media today (print and cyber) is happy to only report on the glamour of an event, who wore what, who drank what and who did who. It’s shameful but what’s more shameful is the fact that any thing liberal that is attacked or questioned or protected while when it comes to religion, we label the smallest of efforts as fanaticsm.Iif we should allow loose women like these to make a national impact then why do we restrict religion?
    This debate is not about what she wore. It’s about why and how did we reach a stage where we allowed her to wear it and reach the public.

    I think it’s time for us to evolve and analyse the face in a logical way. As far as her face goes I beleive that it does appear to be sultry and attractive for many people.If you compare her face to the typical Masi of Pakistan you can see that there is no extra fat on the face of the woman , the facial feautures and bone structure can be clearly seen , the face appears to be clean , without hair and glowing (so what if she has makeup , ive seen women with visible hair on their faces when they have applied makeup).So the term face of the year means someone who is outstanding out of the whole lot.For the judges it may seem logical for them to choose her as an ideal candidate.Many might think or feel that she has an ideal face.As far as the body part goes if someone thinks that its lewd or to vulgur then dont see or think about her body.A person should have the freedom to express himself /herself.People should be tolerant , not extreme.

    All concerns aside, we do live in a democracy (sort of) so if its flesh ppl want, let it be.
    We are quick to raise the question of anything being Islamic or un islamic, with the assumption that we are an Islamic state, but think about it. Do we really live in an islamic state? Cos if we dont, then the concerns regarding this material being published on basis of Islamic teachings become invalid, and the preference of the people take precedence over everything else.

    Pakistan is not an Islamic state, that is very clear. But it certainly is not a democratic one either. What is democracy anyways? Democracy is when 2/3 people agree that the Sun rises from the North instead of the East, it is accepted and acknowledged. Neha’s attire, Sunday’s continuous habit of treating us to flesh-flashes is NOT democratic. You have some 50 or more people up there saying that so. It’s not who is religious and who is not. It’s about who thinks this is immoral and who thinks its ok for women in Pakistan to dress up like this.

    You know my mum and I always have fights on taste. She did her bachelors a long time ago and has now forgotten EVERYTHING. Where as i have seen so many cultures that i probably wouldnt be able to count them on my fingers. I say a ponytail (for guys) isnt anything so uncouth, she says… well she doesnt hear of it. Thats a matter of taste.

    I didnt bother to read most of the posts cuz i can imagine what most of the people have to say. But i thought i would comment on S’s comments. “Stop looking” is not a reasonable demand. HELL i had a difficult time not looking at those pictures and i am going on about how its wrong. This is not taste. Perhaps your idea of taste also includes kids looking to get laid. Because this sort of taste is an imitation of that sort of culture where getting laid is considered a birth-right. And as i said in my earlier post, these things go hand in hand.

    I would really like to have a pakistan (if i were living there) where i wouldnt be afraid my kids could get taken in by the wrong influences at any moment (even though i am still 22)

Nevertheless, your explanation of the current issue at hand is extremely immature. Do you actually believe that our youth and children don’t take any cue from seeing these women clad in such clothes? Why dont YOU try roaming around whereever you live in a knee length skirt and a halter top and we’ll see how many people around you MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS. This is Pakistan sweetheart, NOT your pret a porter Paris! Here, your business is my business, their business and EVERYBODY’s business. That is how it works.

    Ms Zarrar you may be right that it is easy to criticize rather than appreciate but what is there to appreciate in these images? Vulgarity at its best and you think it is in our mentality to look the other way when shown such things? You must be really dumb to propose that notion.

    “As for vulgarity, Why do we all get offended when someone else takes their clothes off?? ” What is that suppose to mean? Are you implying that we are happy to expose ourselves but condemn when some one else does it? Wrong again you are. If you have any ounce of rspect left in your being you would realize now that what you are putting forward is an argument best suited for a western nation than an eastern one. We don’t support such nonsense in our lives and neither would we want it for our families. I have an 18 year old daughter. Would I or any sane parent want her to infuse such practices in her brain? Not in a million years im afraid. I’m sure you are not married and dont have children because your opinion is as hollow as your experience and morals.

    First and foremost, the ‘Face of 2006’ was not called the ‘Body of 2006’ because there was reason to it. The management at Daily Times, Sunday and the Judges’ panel took into consideration a lot of factors in order to conclude the winner. Factors such as ‘looks,’ ‘photogenic abilities,’ ‘cover,’ and ‘figure’ were accounted for while deciding. Besides, the Face of 2006 did not aim at allowing the judges to choose their favorite ‘faces’ meaning that Mr.XYZ chose Neha because of the sparkle in her eye, or Mrs ZXY chose Neha because of her gorgeous smile. Hence, the ‘Face of 2006’ evaluated not the ‘facial abilities’ of a model but her work throughout the year 2006 in terms of Sunday magazine. 52 covers of 2006 were taken under consideration and the 22 nominees were cover girls who had appeared on the covers of Sunday during 2006. Thus, whoever started this blog, and wished for it to be called the ‘body of 2006’ desperately needs to realize that in case he/she wasn’t invited to the event, there was need for some inquiry as to what the criteria of the ‘Face of 2006’ really was.

    Secondly, this society has squeezed in two extremes. I fail to see a balance. One element of the society is adamant on beating the hell out of women driving around town whether it is to serve the purpose of a mere household grocery collection or a prostitution – based chore. On the other hand, there is a growing element of the society which is a regular at parties, alcohol, the Shahi Mohalla, and what not. Sunday magazine has been quick to explore its niche and has catered to this market fully. Thus, whoever so is being influenced negatively has all rights to rip the magazine apart or simply, not subscribe to it.

    Thirdly, I don’t see a point in rebelling against what’s happening in this particular way. When the credibility of Musharaff, being President of a so-called ‘Islamic ‘Republic’ has fallen down to zero, who are we to criticize? When the president himself is an aficionado of Basant parties, why will it be a problem for magazines like Sunday to encourage such culture? When the heads of the country, those who are running it, encourage this form of the West, why wouldn’t power-hungry businessmen take advantage of whatever situation is given to them. Now, that’s human nature.

    Fourthly, I know for a fact that factions of the people who have commented against Sunday are regular pieces of the people pages Sunday is famous for. As far as Ms. Ayesha Fazli is concerned, she needs to definitely jump into a think-tank before writing on this blog again. Since she and her brother are a known face at parties and events like these, I don’t know what makes the damsel rebel against her very own nature/social behavior. The very tragedy of our nation lies here – double standards are not only immense, they’re killing. If she’s all out to save ‘Islam’ than I don’t think Islam has the tendency to endure her weekend thrillers or her pair of jeans for crying out loud.
    ‘Respect your culture, dont rebel against it!’
    Dude, do you respect your culture when you appear on the Sunday pages with those jeans which hug your legs like their in love?
    ‘Unfortunately, because of the likes of her, women are scanned from head to toe as if they are a piece of candy that should be devoured on sight.’
    Well, dude, you can’t entirely blame Neha for this. Men have always been the weaker gender in terms of SEX and what makes you think, that trashed connoisseur of vodka isn’t scanning you from head to toe when you’re dancing around on a New Year’s Eve ball? Charity begins at home, sweetheart.

    Lastly, yes we are a confused nation. Hypocrisy remains to be the biggest threat ever. We wake up from a hangover at 2pm on a Sunday and our first efforts are to open the Sunday magazine and see what’s been happening. We are the first ones to beg and plead for our pictures to be published in Sunday. We are the first ones to make our way to parties even if we aren’t invited. W are the first ones to ‘demand’ for such a ‘market’ and those of us like Neha, who are for whatever personal reasons ready to ‘supply’ such a market, supply. We are still the first ones to criticize what we asked for.

    That was the most idiotic explanation in favor of this issue that I have heard so far. Seriously RANDOMREADER you even beat sadaf up there with your confused logic.

    First and most importantly you said ‘there is a growing element of the society which is a regular at parties, alcohol, the Shahi Mohalla, and what not. ‘ Lady you need to get your facts straight. The ‘growing element’ that you are talking about is centralized in small pockets of more developed cities like Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad. They don’t represent the true identity of Pakistan and they never can because like you pointed out, they get up at 2pm from a hangover very often. This was not the sort of country that my grand father and my mother’s sister sacrifised their lives for. If it were so, Fatimah Jinnah would have worn push up bras/corsets back in the 40s! Pakistan was not made in the name of Islam alone. It was made in the name of freedom as well. Freedom that knew its limits and freedom that respected the larger community!

    You put up a very childish excuse for doing what you do at Sunday that since the country and its people are going in two extremes, there is every reason to follow the more attractive end. Is this the best your Sunday Magazine people could come up with? Shame on you all because as a renowned media house you are responsible for making efforts to correct the society and to bring balance. You are not doing that and only minting money by whatever helps you sleep at night. Shame on you and shame on the way you think.

  57. April 27, 2007 at 9:17 am

    My reply is directed towards Mr. or Mrs. randomreader as well.

    As ridiculous as your response on WeCite blog has been, you have exposed a very serious flaw in our society today and the flaw is YOU. People like you who think there is nothing wrong with promoting such vulgarity and then blaming everything under the sun for what you do. Such bull**** I swear. Nothing more than a chamchi of Sunday Mag who probably gets paid for rooting for your mag like all those hire-for-a-chant crowds at a minister’s speech to the public. Go back to your suffocating cubicle at Sunday magazine and oogle some more flesh and send it to print. That is all you are worth. This blog and this issue is for people who still have some decency left in them and can see much further than the deadline for your next Sunday issue.

  58. April 27, 2007 at 9:49 am

    RANDOMREADER CAN YOU SHIFT GEARS? BECAUSE I THINK YOU ARE STILL STUCK BETWEEN ABSURDITY AND STUPIDITY!

    A) I don’t know which Ayesha Fazli you are talking about but I’m not her. I live Dubai and i do not attend such parties in any form or manner. If you actually believe there could be only ONE Ayesha Fazli on this planet then you must be very very very retarted and i feel sorry for you and your existence.

    If you are so bent upon exposing and pointing fingers at people why didn’t you post your comment with your own name and email address? Are you scared that the majority of people who don’t want to see such stuff in a Pakistani newspaper and magazine will trace you down and beat you blue? Get some balls and come out in the open. Your one response will echo back 10 times against you here because here people know they have a social and civic responsibility towards their country unlike te sort you are.

    I dont think the debate is about Neha any more but about the way people in this country think and accept what is acceptable and what is not. You are on the smaller and weaker side sweetheart. Just because majority of people did not go to the event doesn’t mean we don’t see what goes on there. Just because we were not on the panel of judges doesn’t mean we dont know what happens behind closed doors. Just because people like you put such content up on your magazine doesn’t mean you represent the 16 corore people in this country! Your newspaper might but your magazine so does not.

    If you are too shit scared to put up your name then here: My name is Ayesha Fazli and my email address is ash.fazz@googlemail.com. you can send me your ridiculous whine-sessions here.

    I don’t work for daily times or their sunday magazines, but from what i’ve read is that these pictures were taken AFTER the model won the award, so these images didn’t had anything to do with the judging procedure of the award.

    The actual procedure of judging the winner has already been described in detail in post #56.

    But it was interesting to see that out of 61 comments, i had to go to comment #56 to find someone who actually read the rules of the competition before commenting on a post that was actually about the “success funda” of the competition.

  63. 63 hmmm7
    April 27, 2007 at 2:36 pm

    I couldnt agree more with comment 62. the above photo shoot was conducted after Neha had been made the face of 2006. In fact, when they say ‘Face’ of 2006, they aren’t refering to the face of the model. They are refering to the face of the magazine, or more simply, its cover page.

    I feel the actual issue is within ourselves. We as a nation, are so good at pointing fingers and judging that we fail to pause for a second to think where our faults lie. It is no one’s business if Neha is dressed the way she is in Sunday. You dont like it? dont buy it! its very simple.

    Its so sad that we talk about a modern, advanced Pakistan, but refuse to understand that the first step to advancement is through media. If the media doesn’t advance, nothing will really. Look at India. This is how they started.

    What i dont understand is why people are so shocked at this. Not as a personal attack but MS. AYESHA FAZLI, you live in Dubai, as you’ve said, haven’t you seen this happen all the time? Pakistanis are not half as sex-obssessed as the UAE people, especially people from Dubai. That too, is a Muslim region, so why is the spotlight on let alone Lahore and Sunday.

    Now in Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi, such attire at parties is seen off and on. It has been seen for the past 3-4 years now. I think its just time to accept the transition in society and the media, and move on. The best we can do is be socially responsible and correct ourselves before we point fingers.

    Well, this is what happens when we divert out attention to something that has minimal effect on our society.
    I have no problems with this, and those who have, are hypocrats for two reason:
    a) they admire it, while denoucning it on the face
    b) and more importantly, there are much wider and bigger issues to deal with.
    How many of us, who have said this is wrong, do not do worse evils ourselves. I think no one up there can couch for themselves never to have lied. Lying is much worse than this, the list will continue to inculde back-biting, breaking law, trafiic singals, etc, things which happen infront of us, this we get to see, only if we choose to, others happen infront of us. Hence, what is more important to deal with, this issue, or the others listed above.

    NEHA HAS MOST CERTAINLY PRODUCED THE BEST COVER PAGES FOR SUNDAY IN 2006.

    forget the face of 2006 here because in these pictures you can not see the face at all. it is all body body body. if you have made someone the face of 2006 then show her face not her brown skin all over. the biggest problem is not that we people comment. it is that you perverted people who exploit the freedom to write and publish come up with such pathetic excuses to cover your follies.

I am traveling almost 1 hour every day on the trains and underground and though being in westren culture we dont see much nudity.

    Amazing thing is that she has been given the award i dont see any thing like face being judged as the winner. The prize seems been given to the one who made the judges more hot. I guess the winner might have been a hippi girl in bikinis 🙂 but this was the best option at that time. Way to go PAki Fashion……huh

  73. 73 Farhan
    April 29, 2007 at 7:15 pm

    Fashion photography is used to promote apparel, accessories, and cosmetics. Glamour photography emphasizes the model rather than products, fashion or environment. So in the context of our discussion here, id rather call sunday times a glamour magazine rather than a fashion magazine. The crew of sunday times should clear up their own minds as to what is their purpose- merely exposing skin in a provocative manner or a display of the products by a certain label or designer that they present it all under the name of. A visible difference between a desi n a gora. Salman taseer, the publisher of Daily Times, wants hotness and nudity of women in his magazine and he hides it under the remark “mark on the fashion industry”. Hugh Hefner wants hotness and nudity and he makes sure they ARE hot and nude under no label other than the name of his own magazine. He promotes and makes money out of glamour. He sells faces n bodies of his models and accepts that. Nothing hidden, no deceptions.

    And of course i am not criticising NEHA here. She has a right to wear anything she wants to, pose in any way she wants to and anywhere she wants to. Neha may continue to model and go to certain extents to win titles like ‘face of 2006’, ‘leg of 2007’, ‘toe nail of 2008’, ‘middle finger of 2009’ e.t.c BUT considering the social and religious norms of pakistan, the MEDIA PROVIDING a platform for such an activity is to be blamed.

    I’d like to comment on ms.random reader(comment # 56).
    “(Sunday magazine has been quick to explore its niche and has catered to this market fully. Thus, whoever so is being influenced negatively has all rights to rip the magazine apart or simply, not subscribe to it)”, its quite evident that shes either workin for the magazine or is one of the people who are prolly circling around the sunday times photographers present at the parties so they might get into one of the pics. And by the way you should have used “I” instead of “We” in your last paragraph.

    (‘I’ wake up from a hangover at 2pm on a Sunday and ‘my’ first efforts are to open the Sunday magazine and see what’s been happening. ‘I’ am the first one to beg and plead for ‘my’ pictures to be published in Sunday. ‘I’ am the first one to make ‘my’ way to parties even if ‘Im’ not invited.)
    Talk about yourself because this so clearly shows ur living style, not the normal muslims in pakistan OR dubai.

    “(On the other hand, there is a growing element of the society which is a regular at parties, alcohol..)”
    You are a part of that “growing element” and It might be wrong for YOU to criticize all this with your sunday 2 a.m hang overs but not for a normal paki citizen who doesnt need alcohol as a social lubricant just so he/she could have fun.
    Finally what do you expect by putting up Musharrafs example upfront? If he’s doing something wrong, he is to be blamed and criticised equally.

    And all the people saying that the critics here need to correct themselves and that we practice vices on a personal level as well and we should take a look at ourselves before criticizing such stuff. Agreed. But the problem with people like ‘ahmad moeenudin’ and ‘hmmm7’ is that they are goin hmmm all the time without thinking. What you guys need to understand is the basic fact that nobody is perfect. Every single person does something wrong. Every person here, no matter how islamic he or she is, has an evil in history or present and all that should and MUST be corrected and all. But advertising such behaviour is a foolish act and will have devastating act. if some one is a liar or a back biter, he needs to mend his ways but he shouldnt advertise that hes doing it on a tv-commercial in way that it instigates other people to do the same.

    People who go to parties, drink and wear such clothes are doing WRONG and they should refrain from it all BUT if they choose to do it, they should do it on a personal level. They should not start advertising it which is bad for the society. The little girls growing up will monitor such display of glamour and take it as a normal part of our culture. If you guys HAVE to do such stuff and wear such stuff, do it inside ur homes, at ur parties. Do not broadcast it through the media.

    So all the people supporting sunday times showing half nude models need to understand that instead of manipulating it into a religious extremist issue, look at it as a social one. And do not turn into an extremist yourself just to stand out in business and/or society.

  75. April 30, 2007 at 9:33 am

    Shahbaz you make me laugh sweetheart. You obviously still smell of wine from your last GT in lahore somewhere, being the social-animal that you are, and it would be safe to dismiss your cute rant up there as a result of a bad hangover. Or maybe you got up on the wrong side of the wrong woman/man’s bed. You are obviously and very rightly outnumbered by lots of people here who perhaps don’t go to the events you go to but definitely pray 5 times more than you do in a single day. Being the sort that you are, I would advise against teasing them on religion honey… for you own good 🙂 Whatever your choice of recreation might be, honey you have no idea what you are talking about. Turkey? The country who is so hell bent on getting accepted by the EU that they have adopted everything under the sun to ‘europenize’ themselves? And mind you, that is only half of the glamorous Turkey you are talking about. The other half is still the very Islamic republic as it is.
    Oh and about WeCite not doing events of this sort… sweety we don’t need to tell everyone where we go and who invites us because what our editorial and writing panel do in our time and with our invites (which mind you are not limitted to Pakistan only) is our own business. You are wrong to assume that because WeCite was not invited to the event, we had to lash back at Sunday. Sunday or any other mag is the same doormat for us 🙂 You do it again, we’ll put it up again for the GENERAL public to tell you where you are going wrong. We might not be as big a media house as you fine folks but hey, atleast we have our morals intact and know our social and civic responsibilities.

    PS: Im a model myself from the United States honey. Yes, the same United States the likes of you and your Nehas run off to when they need to shop. Who is trying to be who here?

    I thought it was absurd in the first place. I never believed Neha should have won Face of the year as it emphasized on ‘face’ and not body. I certainly dont think the criteria was who could show more skin or grind better on the dance floor, hence we all know why it happened.
    Apart from that, the shoot that did infact create a lot of hullabuloo was degrading, indecent and a rude awakening to where we’re headed.

    Hi,
    This is going out to random reader, whoever you may be. I am the Ayesha Fazli that you have mentioned above (the one who goes to “these parties”, with her brother). All I have to say to you is that you should really not point fingers at other people around you. As the other Ayesha Fazli said, I too think that you need to “get some balls”. Broaden your mind; a little at least, and try to understand that generalizations are a bad idea.
    Just because my picture come in a magazine or the fact that I wear western clothing (tight jeans is what you called I think) does not give you or anyone else for that matter, the right to pass remarks or judgments on my character. You don’t know me, my morals or my values. I’m not going to judge you based on what you have said about me. I guess if I had written what the other Ayesha did then yes, I too think that I would be asking for trouble and would be behaving in a very hypocritical manner, but I am not the one who wrote that and I think quite a bit differently then she does, (not to say that what she feels is wrong in any way. That is her opinion, I have a different one). However I think our country has far bigger problems and issues to deal with at this time. The things you should focus on and maybe write about are, for example, what the current situation of our country is and how if women (like Neha perhaps) had gotten the opportunity to get an education then maybe she would have been able to worry about the issues that you are talking about here. Her main concern is to provide for herself and her family. So I am once again urging you to be more considerate and a little more understanding towards other people and where they are coming from. You have the right to your opinion but you don’t have the right to judge. I’m asking you here to think (always) before you speak…in this case type.

    Hahaha…

    Frankly I’m very intrigued by the discussions going on in this forum. I must say, while these pics probably don’t fall in to favor with islam, I don’t think there is anything wrong with them.

    First of all, these picture were the result of a free press, one not coerced into such publications by an overarching authority. So, assuming it was a result of free press, one must reach the conclusion that the editors felt it would add to the bottom line. The bottom line of a free press is to increase circulation, and make money, just like any other business.

    That means they would have figured that their viewership would expect these kind of pictures and accept them, if not demand more of it. This viewership, I might add, IS Pakistan. Not all of Pakistan views it, but I’m pretty sure most if not all who do view it are Pakistani. So before blaming yourself, blame fellow Pakistanis who eat this stuff up.

    Secondly, I’d rather people pay money to Pakistani firms to buy their publications rather than say, GQ or Stuff Magazine.

    For those of you so offended, you have a right to be offended. What you have no right to do is police society. Pakistanis know what’s best for them. We do not need radical mullahs, overpowering generals, or corrupt politicians telling them what they want.

  84. October 3, 2007 at 4:24 pm

    Assalam-o-alaikum everybody..
    Aamir mian. That’s not the way we should take it. If we think THAT way.. brothels can be allowed, drinking bars can be allowed and many other bad things like these can be allowed. Will they be empty?? Won’t people go for them? The public which would be there and which ‘GOES’ to these places ARE Pakistanis. So should these be allowed or appreciated ? NEVER. Those misguided Pakistani brothers and sisters of ours must be leaded to the right path instead of allowing such bad things.
    We got this dear land of ours for the Muslims. It’s the “‘Islamic’ Republic of Pakistan”. And these things are NOT allowed in Islam. Hope you get it brother.

    My point, which I suppose I should have concluded, was not that there is no moral compass for Islam, but that acheiving that moral compass will not simply come from keeping the masses from the resources to indulge in what may or may not be considered “sinful behavior”. Not permanently anyway. People will always find a way.

    If you really want to help those “misguided brothers and sister” try to do so eliminating their desire to sin by a deeper appreciation of their faith and its constraints. Win their minds. Otherwise, one brothel will close so another one opens. One bar will shut down only to be replaced by another one.

    On a different note, and I know this one’s gonna spark a fire here too, but the “Islamic” republic of Pakistan in my opinion was envisioned to allow muslims to govern themselves as they choose. AS THEY CHOOSE. Not as forced by a mullah. That’s why the word “Republic” is also in that title. That’s why minorities are allowed to legally purchase alcohol. That’s why up until the 1970s the constitution was secular. At least I would think that an alcohol consuming founder and intellectual (Jinnah and Iqbal), who can be largely credited with the movement, intended.

    Your turn.

    as much as i am reluctant to share the above (jim’s) view, i am afraid that i have to agree with him. hypocrisy is a big evil and needs to be eliminated first before we can be judgemental on any issue!

    i personally feel, as indicated earlier in several posts already, its her own morality and we should mind our own business. if everyone starts mending their own inner selves, i believe that these instances would seldom be an issue and people will learn to respect others as i can bet none of us here are any religious scholars and are just trying to shove their rigid beliefs.

    Nudity is a good way to get noticed.

    Such kind of women have always existed in societies; even Muslim cultures. The only difference is that these days they get more projection and are glorified to the extent that teenage girls actually want to follow in their footsteps. THAT to me is sad.

    One word: Bitch.

    I certainly would not want my sister, wife or daughter to be like Neha. Period.

    In fact, many individuals have more than 50 to 100 moles,
    however, prefer to use home remedies and cures to get rid of warts.
    Though one can diagnose warts with a 99 percent acetic acid solution.
    The E genes encode proteins regulating function, and the subsequent
    financial meltdown of 2001, the massive layoffs and budget cuts were represented by a kinetic light show and manic
    soundtrack. For example, registered nurse Bonnie McMillen of the University of California
    Medical School in San Francisco.

    Hey there excellent website! Does running a
    blog similar to this take a lot of work? I have very little
    understanding of programming but I had been hoping to start
    my own blog in the near future. Anyways, should you have
    any suggestions or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic nevertheless I just had to ask.
    Kudos!

    Cyberstalking can have a devastating effect on victim’s lives.
    It’s bacteria in the mouth decomposing the food you’ve eaten that causes bad breath.

    And when she sees that you’re also worried about
    this issue, then she’ll feel much more relaxed about it.
