“I do not want to leave Lahore because of these persons."
Pakistani singer Aima Baig was forced to halt her concert due to a disruptive member of the crowd swearing at her.
The concert took place in Lahore.
It was reported that Aima abruptly stopped her performance after spotting a male concertgoer flashing his middle finger at her.
The man’s rude behaviour annoyed Aima and it prompted her to vent her anger.
In response to the hater, the 26-year-old flashed her middle finger at the man.
She went on to tell the crowd that she did so because someone in the crowd did it first.
Calling out the man, she said:
“I do not want to leave Lahore because of these persons.”
Aima also called the man “Ganda Keera” and added:
“We are also from Lahore, so don’t underestimate us in any way.”
The rest of the crowd apologised to the singer before identifying the hater and lashing out at him.
The viral video received over 100,000 views and many took to the comments section.
Many praised the musician for standing up to the man while others slammed the hater for his behaviour.
Aima later resumed her concert and shared a glimpse of it on Instagram.
While Aima Baig stood up to the rude concertgoer, this is not the first time she has had to pause her performance.
At another concert in December 2021, Aima lost her cool when a crowd member’s behaviour became intolerable.
In a video, Aima lashed out at a front-row attendee at the Punjab Group of Colleges in Gujranwala.
She told the man: “Go at the back.”
After asking security to remove the man, Aima added:
“If you guys misbehave, I’ll go back…”
She then addressed the crowd:
“Because of one person like him, everything gets ruined for everybody else who’s here to enjoy.”
The crowd apologised to her. Aima later promised to finish the show.
Another shocking incident saw Atif Aslam end his concert after seeing female audience members being harassed by male fans.
The concert took place at the Jinnah Convention Centre in Islamabad on December 10, 2021.
After witnessing some of the male audience members harassing women and families, Atif paused his performance to address them.
He told the harassers that they should give women some space.
Atif went on to say that women and families in the crowd should be free from any sort of harassment.
The playback singer then resumed his performance.
However, upon seeing male audience members continuing to harass the women, Atif stopped his concert in anger.
A lack of action from the security staff prompted the singer to walk off the stage.
He later spoke to a member of the management staff, saying that the sanctity of womanhood must be protected at all costs.
