The character titled Bloody Nasreen is a 27-year-old girl-next-door from Pakistan who dispatches villains with sword and gun while tackling corruption and human trafficking.

Designed and conceptualized by Shahan Zaidi, Bloody Nasreen wears skull-printed kameez with churidar and sneakers – none of what girls her age would wear and shockingly even smokes.

Zaidi said that he chose to give her a common name that everyone can relate to. According to the artist, Nasreen fights a war against terrorism, human trafficking, corruption and injustice, and thinks that stupid is more evil, than evil.

Zaidi hopes to publish the novel by October this year, while a film is already in the pre-production phase.

Nasreen has attracted enormous attention on social media and generated plenty of debate, especially over her outfit, which does not include a dupatta (scarf). In many cases, she has been criticised for not wearing a dupatta, but Zaidi says that’s because he wanted to keep the character as real as possible and in real life no woman would be able to keep it in place while jumping buildings and fighting with thugs.

Nasreen was conceptualised long before Burka Avenger, Pakistan’s first superheroine, who appears in her own animated television series. But Nasreen languished in Zaidi’s sketch book for four years, until 2009, when he shared his illustrations with friends and noticed the growing interest.
