We have always seen rules and regulations in schools and other educational institutions across Pakistan to maintain a proper system and to teach students about the importance of discipline. However, during an event at NCS Peshawar, social media was taken aback.
Reportedly, NCS Peshawar hosted a recreational event where a singer who was wearing ‘revealing clothes’ was invited. Moreover, videos of her dancing ‘vulgarly’ have gone viral.
The video shows a female singer dressed up in a tight black revealing outfit. The dress shows parts of her body as she dances and sings on the stage. A crowd is gathered to watch her on the stage performing.
Netizens took to social media to bash the institute, asking them how could they allow the singer to wear such attire and dance in front of a male audience in a vulgar way.
This ignited extreme negativity as the cultural and religious values of people in Pakistan generally do not align with such practices and people had something to say about the incident.

It's not okay. It's religiously inappropriate. It's culturally inappropriate. What on earth made them do this stuff ? Like we don't live in New York or London. These people need to learn that whatever they're doing has an impact and they should carefully take decisions.

I appreciate the presence of such western pop singers in #Peshawar 👏🏻
Everyone's enjoying the concert in a decent manner. All is well.
But hypocrite "Moral Brigade 111" will tell you otherwise! https://t.co/Ovcds62sCh

This is indeed against our cultural norms and values however social change is inevitable due to modernisation fuelled by cultural invasion. Such scenes might be new in an educational institute however they are common in pre-wedding parties.
