‘Dick Pics’ Are Now Being Discussed On National TV And We Can All Thank Orya Maqbool Jan For It

Orya Maqbool Jan legit went beserk


It’s exactly onne week since Aurat March took place and people are still talking about it. In particular, some men are still very disgruntled by some of the posters participants in the march had with them.


One of the posters that caught a bit too much attention at Aurat March was one that said ‘Dick Pics Apnay Paas Rakho’.

Men. Went. Ballistic.

People called it ‘fahaash’ and immoral to hold such a sign, which is against our culture. Honestly, people completely missed the point, all the woman wanted was men to stop sending unsolicited pictures of their genitals to unsuspecting women.

Somehow, unsurprisingly, the entire conversation instead of focusing on problematic men who send inappropriate pictures to unsuspecting women, became a conversation about how women are immoral for holding such placards…

Out of all this, Orya Maqbool Jan felt like he had to give his two cents on the topic on national television.

First of all, Orya Maqbool Jan screaming the words ‘dick pic’ on national television itself was surreal. Imagine talking about how ‘fahaash’ the sign was and then talking about it in detail on television, giving it wider coverage. Just defeating your own purpose… irony is indeed dead.

Orya sahab practically frothed at the mouth about the audacity of young women saying that men should not send unsolicited pictures of their genitals to them which is a fundamental right for men… according to Orya the placard directly went against his fundamental rights.

Honestly, I fail to understand what exactly Orya Maqbool was trying to convey was his fundamental right but it really did seem like he was upset about women trying to take away his right to send unsolicited pictures of his dick.


Of course, people couldn’t believe what they were seeing either.


And of course, dick pic jokes were made.

Anyway, it was an incredibly interesting conversation to be had on national television. With the likes of Orya Maqbool Jan who is known to be someone who overly sexualizes women’s bodies, with opinions such as those that women playing sports is too arousing since when they run, you see their chests move… Yep.

So having someone who’s opinion of women is incredibly degrading to begin with, to comment on Aurat March is incredibly careless on behalf of the media channel who aired this program itself. Not having a woman present there to explain the issue and the context itself was damaging to what the march set out to do; make the country a safer place for women.

Also, it’s 2019, why is Orya Maqbool Jan’s opinion still so relevant?
