LAHORE (Web Desk) – Pakistanis always need something to talk about. But no one can tell what makes them fume.
This time a TV advertisement featuring Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri on the front pages of leading Pakistani dailies seems to have done the job.
Many, including journalists, took to Twitter to condemn the ‘obscenity’ of the seemingly innocent ad that simply shows a woman lying down with a phone in her hand.

Some Twitteratis chose to be more rational and focus on bigger issues:
