The song in question is currently unnamed, but rumors suggest it will be named "Burqa," which is the name of a particular Arabic style of dress commonly associated with Muslim women.
The lyrics that goes as: 'I'm not a wandering slave, I'm a woman of choice ... My veil is protection for the gorgeousness of my face' reportedly echoed what many Muslim women mention as their reasons for wearing the hijab, niqab, or burqa, the Washington Times reports.
The song's lyrics have misused the meaning of Burqa making it embarrassing for Muslim women. The chorus goes as: 'Do you want to see me naked, lover? Do you want to peek underneath the cover? Do you want to see the girl who lives behind the aura? ... Do you wanna touch me? Let's make love.'
The lyrics could generate images that dehumanize and degrade burqa-wearing women and turn them into objective things, the report added.
Meanwhile, a Pakistani cartoon has been praised for empowering the gender.
"Burqa Avenger", a cartoon that has been screened in approximately sixty countries featured a Pakistani school teacher who fights crime and promotes women's education, while disguising her superhero identity with a burqa.
Lady Gaga's leaked song, meanwhile, has also garnered accusations of cultural insensitivity.
The creator of Burqa Avenger, Aaron Haroon Rashid, said he wanted to put the cartoon as an inspiration to girls and he thought that it would be good for boys to see strong women.
