Indian Express: Baloch was an Internet sensation, one of the top 10 most searched people in Pakistan and though there were many who condemned the nature and content of the videos that Baloch shared on social media platforms, there was no denying her popularity in the rather conservative country. Most of her videos – wherein more often than not the model would be in bed, wearing exposing clothes and recording provocative messages – would go viral.

What is interesting is that browsing her official Facebook, Baloch’s videos aside, or even along with them, the model talks about the feminist fight to break stereotypes and the need for women to have the right to do and say whatever they want without encountering censure from society. One such video was a podcast that Baloch shared on her Facebook page on July 4, which talks about her as an Internet sensation and the social contrast she represents that currently exists in Pakistan. On the one hand, there was a huge demand for her Facebook page to be banned, on the other she was regularly invited on prime time television shows.

“Atleast international media can see what i am upto. How i am trying to change the typical orthodox mindset of people who don’t wanna come out of their shells of false beliefs and old practices.
Here this one is for those people only.
Thankyou my believers and supporters for understanding the message i try to convey through my bold posts and videos. It’s time to bring a change because the world is changing. let’s open our minds and live in present. ??

  1. How tragic! In a patriarchal society, it’s difficult to change the pervading mindset regarding a woman’s place in society. It will take generations of struggle to bring about meaningful change in the status of women.

    The circumstances surrounding her death brings to mind my Haiku poem “Changing Times” – inspired by the poem “The Clock” by Brazilian poet Joao Cabral de Melo Neto, featured on my Poetry Corner January 2014.

    Caged by fixed doctrines
    rejecting changes in norms.
    Time an enemy.
