The Case of Quandeel Baloch
“How I’m looking? Beautiful, sexy, or hot?” One could have easily mistaken these words to be uttered by a Kim Kardashian, a Kendal Jenner or some other young woman on Instagram seeking fame, if only it was not for the broken English. The broken English hides a story much deeper than an appeal for likes on social media. The minor grammatical difference underscores a world altogether different than the one of TikTok stars. These were the very words that gave a woman in Pakistan a new life; a life she had always desired. But the very same words were also responsible for snatching away her life from her. This is the story of Qandeel Baloch.
