Qavi, who was suspended from a prominent Muslim council in the controversy following the posts, told local media after Baloch's death he had "forgiven her" and the matter was now in God's hands.
After Baloch's death, many Pakistanis again called for the passage of an anti-honour killing law, aimed a closing a loophole that allows family members to forgive the killers.
"The death of Qandeel Baloch conveys an insidious message: that women will be kept back at all cost; murdered, if they dare nurture ambitions to break the glass ceiling," the English daily Dawn newspaper wrote in an editorial on Sunday.
Baloch, who called herself a modern day feminist, was described as Pakistan's Kim Kardashian and built a modelling career on the back of her social media fame.
"As women we must stand up for ourselves. As women, we must stand up for each other," she told her 758,000 followers on Facebook, days before her death.
Earlier this year Baloch offered to strip if the wildly popular Pakistani cricket team beat arch-rival India.
She also appeared in a music video, gyrating bare legged to an Urdu-language song in high-heels and a see-through top.
Prior to her death Baloch spoke of worries about her safety and had appealed to the interior ministry to provide her with security for protection. No help was provided and the interior ministry has not commented on her death.
On social media, some celebrated her killing as she had been a "disgrace" to Pakistan's culture.
But many grieved her death, saying she had helped the cause of women in a society where they are often banned from working or even appearing in public in ultra-conservative areas.
"There are far too many people who only know how to respond with violence here," Meesha Shafi, a Pakistani model and actress, said on Twitter.
