Throughout the world, you can find beauty pageants. The rumored participation of a Pakistani lady in an international competition has been met with both praise and condemnation at home. A contestant from Pakistan has been announced for the first time. I have a lot of weight on my shoulders and must rise to the challenge. But I won’t do anything that would hurt the country’s name,” Erica Robin, a 24-year-old fashion model rumored to have been chosen to represent Pakistan in the Miss Universe competition, said.

Pakistan has never before had a representative at Miss Universe, while ladies of Pakistani descent have competed in beauty pageants in a number of different nations. Robin told Voice of America that she is excited for the tournament and that she would be thrilled to win, declaring with pride that “she belongs to Pakistan.”

If Robin enters this global tournament, she will undoubtedly make headlines. On November 18, she will participate alongside girls from 90 other countries at the Miss Universe 2023 competition in El Salvador.

Curiously, on Wednesday, Caretaker Minister for Information and Broadcasting Murtaza Solangi announced that the government of Pakistan has not submitted a candidate to represent the country at the Miss Universe competition. The minister was responding to a post on X (previously Twitter) by a renowned journalist who had asked who in the administration had approved the participation of five people in the competition.

Institutions of the state and the government of Pakistan act as representatives of the government and the state. Our government has not nominated any non-state or non-governmental person or organization for this position, and none of them could credibly represent the state or government in this capacity. The minister concluded his X post with the words “period.”

The United States and Thailand share the cost of hosting the Miss Universe competition, which is estimated at $100 million every year. On June 28, 1952, the ground was broken for this illustrious establishment. Women from all around the world demonstrate their wit, professional prowess, and dedication to social problems by competing in this annual event. There is no distinction made in the competition based on factors like race, caste, language, religion, or culture.
