Hadiqa Kiani is a total badass. She’s a superstar and someone who is always willing to bend the rules and live life according to her own accord.
13 years ago, Hadiqa Kiani adopted a baby boy and it was honestly a very precious moment.
She was critcized for adopting a child as a “single woman” and whatnot but she soldiered through it all, like the champion that she is.
Hadiqa Kiani recently opened up about people’s attitude towards single mothers and mothers of adopted children are treated in this society.
In a powerful rant on her Instagram, the star talked about how she doesn’t understand why some men feel the need to ‘rescue’ women who are single mothers
She was addressing a tharki friendship inbox message request that she received where a man had offered to marry her saying he “knows” that she has a child and is single.
Hadiqa did not take that as a “compliment”, she spoke up about how a single mother is no less than anyone else and simply doesn’t need pity
In speaking to MangoBaaz about this whole incident, Hadiqa Kiani said, “we must shed light on the daily issues women go through. A man DM-ing me is not a big deal but imagine what the average single mother has to go through when filing paperwork at government offices, or when trying to accomplish anything and men prey on these women like animals. It’s sickening.”
In her story, she went on about how society is constantly demeaning single mothers and their role
YOU SAY IT, GURRRL!
There is so much wrong with the societal practice of forcing single mothers into marriage or making them feel like marriage is their best bet
She addressed women too, and how it’s their prerogative to help each other out
Hadiqa Kiani also shared her own experiences when she decided to adopt
A single mother is put into a very vulnerable position by society in general, and this position is taken advantage of by some people.
She ended her story with this simple, and basic message
As people responded to her story and her experiences, she sent out these final words of power
Her message is simple; read it, understand it and implement it
Pakistani society has a way of putting women down, especially if you’re a single mother. You become the recipient of a massive pity-fest, and slowly you begin to believe what everyone says to you; you begin to believe that you cannot do it on your own, you begin to believe that you need to get married.
She’s absolutely right, there are so many situations that we take for granted, as part of our privilege, and we need to honestly think from their perspective. These women have to go through a lot because of what society has to say to them. If you learn anything from what Hadiqa has to say, learn to respect single mothers around you; they go through a lot, and they don’t need your pity, they need your support.
