The year 2022 was marked by a viral meme that took social media by storm. The meme was triggered by a selfie posted by Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui, in which he was seen posing with contraband burning in the background. The purpose of the selfie was to raise awareness and promote a "war on drugs".
Film actor and supermodel Amna Ilyas recently posted a selfie that was eerily similar to Siddiqui's, along with a video from a narcotics burning site of the Pakistan Coast Guards. The video showed disposal of a large amount of contraband seized during various operations.
"It was a treat to celebrate the determined efforts of the Pakistani Coast Guards in their fight to eliminate drugs and contraband from society!! Perhaps we could have found a different way to dispose of contraband but it still keeps the brave sentiment of saying NO to drugs!! Highly honoured to have raised a salute to our determined Pakistan Coast Guards!!" captioned the Baaji star.

After the picture and a video were shared online, the internet became abuzz with activity as netizens had a field day with the actor's recreation of Siddiqui's selfie. While some poked fun at the actor, others expressed their criticism towards her participation in environmentally harmful activity.
