Social media users are raging over Saba Qamar and Bilal Saeed for disrespecting a sacred place such as a mosque for the shoot of their Qubool music video after a teaser was by Saba Qamar on her Instagram.

Saba Qamar wrote in her caption saying:
This is also the only sequence that was shot at the historical Wazir Khan Mosque. It’s a prologue to the music video featuring a Nikah scene. It was neither shot with any sort of playback music nor has it been edited to the music track.

Despite this if we have unknowingly hurt anyone’s sentiments we apologise to you all with all our heart. Love & Peace!
