Mehwish Hayat receive Tamgha-e-imtiaz?
So, this news of Mehwish Hayat receiving Tamgha-e-imtiaz
surfaced yesterday and like all news, the whole twitter erupted with rage and
started questioning why did Mehwish Hayat receive Tamgha-e-imtiaz and of
course, then followed the sweet relentless trolling.
Now you must have read these lines copied from Wikipedia by
all top magazines, I am copying it too so you don’t have to go there to read,
just explaining what Tamgha-e-imtiaz is.
Tamgha-i-Imtiaz (Urdu: تمغائے امتیاز), (English: Medal of
Excellence), is a state-organized honor of the State of Pakistan. It is the
fourth-highest decoration given to any civilian in Pakistan based on their
achievements. While it is a civilian award, it can also be bestowed upon
military officers of the Pakistan Armed Forces and worn on one's uniform. The
award is not limited to the citizens of Pakistan, and can be awarded to foreign
citizens who have performed great service to Pakistan.
Now, to the medals, speaking of Tamgha-e-imtiaz and its
recipients, legendary Babra Sharif and actress Mehwish Hayat will be conferred.
Other than Imtiaz, Nishan-e-Imtiaz will be awarded to Shoaib Sultan Khan as he
is one of the pioneers of rural development programmes in Pakistan. As a CSP
Officer, he worked with the Government of Pakistan for 25 years, later on he
served Geneva based Aga Khan Foundation for 12 years, then UNICEF and UNDP for
Yasir Shah, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis will be awarded in
the Field of Games with Hilal-e-Imtiaz.
A lot of people have criticized Mehwish Hayat for receiving
an award for her ‘Basic Efforts’ and questioned why people who are working for
the society were not awarded. The perfect answer to the question is, that
category my friend is different! Mehwish Hayat won the medal which is fourth-highest
or last in all civil awards categories.
So, here is the list of civil awards in Pakistan:
So, even in the fourth category, Tamngha-e-imtiaz is 3rd
highest medal which should not bother a lot of people (who are crying over her
inclusion) since it is an excellence award and Mehwish Hayat has shown some
excellent results in the previous years. With singing, modeling and acting in
films, taking those films to international heights and making them one of the highest
grossing movies of all times in Pakistan’s cinema history is quite an ask.
Especially when Punjab Nahi Jaongi won SPECIAL
JURY AWARD AT ‘SCO FILM FESTIVAL’, which was an incredible moment for all
It is okay to think what you want and screw people on Social
Media because that is your right, it is your life. But, our question always
remains, what are we doing so notable or even worthy for our country that gives
us the right to criticize people over their success? If we think her doing a
song like ‘Billi’ won her a medal and she doesn’t deserve it, how about we do something better and incredible, and win
a medal for it to show how medals are won?
The easiest thing today is to write something mean on Social
Media these days, while it may hurt a lot of people, the most difficult thing
these days is to get out and do something with life, and fortunately or
unfortunately she and all others who we criticize on Social Media are doing
