The blockbuster tv drama Meray Paas Tum Ho writer Khalil ur Rehman Qamar is under heavy criticizm on twitter and other social media outlets for his very blunt and abusive remarks against a woman activist Marvi Sermed during a talk show at Neo tv.
Mahira Khan who usually does not take to twitter to criticize someone could not help it and said how he (Qamar) continues to get away with this behaviour and still make it in the industry that should really be watchful of who is representing it. Where's Pemra when you need them?
The actor, who's previously worked with Qamar in Sadqay Tumhare took to Twitter to express her shock over his behaviour. "While it is surprising us why he has become the leading voice for misogy- sorry, meninists... this time we were really wondering how he got away with using abusive language on national TV."
"I am shocked at what I have just heard and seen!" wrote Mahira. "Sick to the core. This same man who abused a woman on TV is revered and given project after project because of what?"
She added, "We are as much to blame if not more for perpetuating this thinking!"
Khalil ur Rehman has recently signed on with 7th Sky Entertainment of Geo Entertainment to write four drama serials and a feature film.
Mahira was followed by a few more celebs who also finally had enough of the writer's rants. Filmmaker Nabeel Qureshi was one also extremely infuriated by all the progressed on the show.
Shehzad Roy was another to express his thoughts and also attempt to explain Mera jism meri marzi, a concept many have been trying to explain for the past two years but no one wants to understand.
Said Roy, "Don't understand the problem so many are having with #MeraJismMeriMarzi - Mera jism meri marzi nahi toh kis ki marzi ho gi? 'My body is mine' is a critical component of the Life Skills Based Education classes we teach to help children protect themselves from abuse & harassment."
