ASF girl loses two years service over viral dance video


The Airport Security Force (ASF) on Monday seized two years service of a female staffer after her dance video went viral on the social media earlier this week.

The ASF took notice of the viral video of the female officer, who was deployed at the Sialkot airport, and ordered an inquiry into it.

The security force has also restricted its personnel from using social media.

Ahead of the country’s Independence Day, another dance video had landed Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) into trouble with the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

The promotional video featured a Polish tourist dancing while doing the Kiki Challenge in a PIA plane.

As soon as the video started making rounds everywhere, it drew praise and criticism alike from various sections. The anti-graft body was least impressed by the stunt as soon after the airline shared the tourist’s picture on its official Twitter handle, the NAB ordered probe against the PIA for allegedly bringing disgrace to the flag and abuse of power.

The airline and the blogger had both removed the video from their respective social media forums after criticism. Eva zu Beck had also apologised to her fans on social media.

In a new video, she had said that the purpose of the promo was to encourage tourism in Pakistan. “I apologise for hurting sentiments of the people,” she had said.
