Aamir Liaquat, Mahira Khan and other celebrities take on Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar

The Lahore High Court’s recent decision to throw away a petition trying to block Aurat March 2020 has been hailed by many as support for equal rights for all. However, some men, like Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar have been severely triggered by the decision.

 

The verbal abuse on live TV by Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar has been met with condemnation from most literate circles of the country.

People expressed their solidarity with Marvi, the female journalist who was abused by the writer, and condemned Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar for not being able to keep his cool.

 

Pakistani celebrities, led by Aamir Liaquat and Mahira Khan are speaking up against Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar being given the platform to air his abusive remarks

 

Other celebrities, alongside Aamir Liaquat and Mahira Khan who’ve spoke up against Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar, are industry stalwarts like Sanam Saeed and Sarmad Khoosat

Sarmad Khoosat, in particular, called out the system that has allowed men with such dangerous opinions about women to be able to air their thoughts. He called out the industry for giving him the power and also the fans who support the writer and possibly share in his dangerous opinions.

 

Osman Khalid Butt also chimed in regarding how Khalil Ur Rehman has had a history of displaying such behavior and was still allowed to be on air

 

Shehzad Roy didn’t just stand back either and came forward with his stance

 

Noted journalist Asma Shirazi couldn’t hold back her criticism on Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar’s mentality

 

Aamir Liaquat also condemned such behavior and expressed how Khalil Ur Rehman has embarrassed all men

 

People from all platforms came forward with criticism, joining Aamir Liaquat and Mahira Khan in condemning Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar’s views

 

Even the host of the TV show where the incident happened also offered somewhat of an apology

Kuch na honay se kuch behtar hai but her response only goes to show her tone deafness and inability to understand how dangerous the abusive remarks of Khalil Ur Rehman really are.

Such behavior from such a seemingly educated man is alarming and forces us to think about the extremely unstable constructs on which the mentality of numerous people in our society, who are supporting the man’s actions, is based on.

What do you think about this whole situation? let us know in the comments below.
