#BanScrapFest: Netizens strongly condemn LGBTQ festival being held in Karachi

The festival is all set to take place in Karachi on February 4.

Netizens strongly condemned the LGBTQ festival being held in Karachi, promoting unIslamic values in Pakistan.

What is Scrap Fest exactly?

Scrap Fest is the female-fronted LGBTQ-friendly rock festival.

Scrap Fest – an LGBTQ event hosted by a Canadian-Pakistani musician Urvah Khan has been announced to be held on Feb 4 in Karachi.

As per the announcement made in an Instagram post, the controversial event will feature queer, trans, drag queens, and underground performers.


For those unserved, ScrapFest made its debut in Lahore last year on Dec 23.

The hashtag, #BanScrapFest has been initiated on Twitter, demanding to ban such events as they are against Islamic values.





Renowned Pakistani fashion designer, Maria B, also raised questions on the Scrap Fest asking for a ban on the event.


In 2017, Urvah Khan announced her return to Pakistan with a new live music series called ‘Scrap Fest’.

Last year, Scrap Fest Karachi was engulfed in controversy.

The event was co-funded by the German Consulate and the diplomat attending the event was accused of harassment and ended up being suspended.
