Afghan singer burns dress that sparked criticism
DUBAI (Web Desk) – Afghan singer and television personality Aryana Sayeed publicly set her skin-coloured dress ablaze after being criticized by members of the public in her native Afghanistan for wearing it in a recent Paris concert.

The singer, who is also a judge on the Afghan version of The Voice talent show, posted video on her facebook account, showing her burning the dress that sparked controversy with some saying it was against Afghan culture.

“If you think that the only problem in Afghanistan is this dress, I will set this on fire today because of you,” Aryana said on social media.

“It should be noted that the reason for this action of mine is not the pressure of those who still live in dark ages but to raise further awareness in regards to important issues within our society,” she added.

However, she got support from her fans, with one saying “She should have burnt the dirty mouth of the people who unfairly criticised her. Burning the dress was not good work.”
