[RxPG] Islamabad, May 11 - Pakistan's Supreme Court has served summons on Urdu poet and singer Abrarul Haq for using the name 'Parveen' in his song that forced a girl with the same name to drop out of college as she complained that the poet had used 'derogatory words in the song'.

Acting Chief Justice of Pakistan Rana Bhagwandas took suo motu notice of a letter written by the girl to the editor of an Urdu newspaper complaining that the lyric had led to her being ridiculed by boys in her college, the Associated Press of Pakistan - reported.

The words used about Parveen are: 'Ne Parveen too bari namkeen; ooper sey to miskeen, andar sey too bari shauqeen', which roughly translated says Parveen is 'cute' or 'saucy' and appears 'simple' or 'innocent' on surface, but is actually 'romantic'.

In her letter, Parveen said the song forced her to abandon her studies at a college in Lahore.

'Whenever I would pass by the college canteen, the boys would start singing the song and laugh at me,' Parveen said.

Taking note of her anguish, the court also issued a notice to the Advocate General of Punjab to appear before it at a date that is yet to be fixed, the Daily Times said Friday.
