Mumbai, July 16 (ANI): Following the death of Pakistani model, Qandeel Baloch, an upset Rakhi Sawant condemned Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and said he should take lessons from his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.

"Beti Bachao na ki beti hatao," she told ANI, adding, Sharif should learn how to save girls from Prime Minister Modi.

"I am grateful that Modi is our Prime Minister, he not only believes in the ideology of 'Beti Bachao' but also makes a lot of efforts to practically implement it. He has made several laws for safety and empowerment of women in the country and that is commendable," she added.

"I feel because she used to post her sensual pictures on social media she got murdered or may be because she used to love Indian celebrities," Sawant said.

"She was a fan of Virat, Shahrukh, Kareena and also of mine. Even she used to look up to Narendra Modi. Why did her brother murder her? Is it because she used to love India and Indian celebrities?," said Sawant, adding, "is it a crime to like Indians?."

Baloch was allegedly killed by her brother in an apparent 'honour killing' in the province of Punjab in Pakistan on July 16.

The 26-year-old recently stirred a controversy by posting her pictures on the social media, including one with a Muslim cleric.

"The reason of this murder could also be the outcome of her alleged affair with a Muslim cleric, but even if it is so, do girls in Pakistan not have a right to live life on their own conditions?," she questioned while making comments about the status of women in the Muslim nation.

Alleging that Baloch's family had harassed her before killing her, Sawant demanded a thorough probe into the matter and appealed to Sharif to take stringent action against the guilty. (ANI)
