It wasn’t long ago when Noman Ijaz went on board with admitting that he casually ”cheats” on his wife. On today’s episode of Pakistani celebrities uttering problematic stuff, we have Iffat Omar.
Short after the Noman Ijaz’s interview, a clip surfaced in which Iffat admitted doing retakes just to hug Rahat Kazmi
Iffat Omar hosts a web show on Najam Sethi’s official YouTube channel called ”Say It All with Iffat Omar”. Talking to her guests Hareem Farooq and Ali Rehman Khan, Iffat admitted to having a massive crush on Rahat Kazmi. She mentioned that she used to hug the actor deliberately even when he was playing her father’s role.
Iffat Omar's character is full of shits. She is lady who does flirt with male co-actors & admitted that she deliberately took retakes during shooting to hug Rahat Kazmi. How can a devil in the form of wh*re is making fun of our PM & Insafians? At Least we aren't flirty like her. pic.twitter.com/kCTvydniaU

However, in another video, Iffat Omar is seen joking about the new punishment for rapists
Talking about the castration punishment for rapists, Iffat says the authorities would find it easy switching from dog castration to rapists’ castration. It’s 2020 and we are still “joking” about things that are absolutely horrific.
You can disagree on the type of punishment for a rapist and suggest what kind of punishment you want for such hardcore criminals. But how can you be so insensitive and stupid to start joking about such a serious issue/crime? Disgusting @IffatOmar pic.twitter.com/avIK8MkbiD

This is still not the end. Without taking any name directly, Iffat Omar implies some offensive stuff about our leadership
Iffat Omar is another Nida Yasir , dumb aff and will do anything for ratings.

Iffat Omar is touching a new low with the scripted show. She is talented and can find more and better work.
So many of us like, admire and grew up watching her. Bus kerdain khassi-punna. It's way below her.

This is really in bad taste. The choice of words and the selection of occasion is totally off. She’s trying to be funny or sarcastic or whatever but really she’s fallen from grace on her face.

She is being bashed for insulting the Prime Minister as well
Madam #iffatomar you are talking about the PM of Islamic Republic of pakistan it means you are directly insulting pakistan. You are just showing your actual i regret i wasted a fews minutes of my life while watching your dramas

…and for making insensitive jokes
What is wrong with @OmarIffat? I used to respect her but recently I've seen her interview clips with Nauman Ijaz & Meera and been disappointed. However this is an all new low. She's sunk to rapist jokes now? https://t.co/60XLsICFM0
— Salsa (@Salsa_Khan) September 18, 2020
People are asking her not to lose her hard-earned respect with such gimmicks
Sorry to say but Iffat Omar is losing all the respect she gained over the years through her work in the entertainment industry. This is sad, poor and pathetic. https://t.co/O7F02rVMp1

Iffat omer has lost all the respect or appreciation she has been gathering from years. Filth 😐

It is disappointing to see celebrities making irresponsible statements, while they could have used their platform to promote more awareness. Iffat Omer is a well-known name in the industry, but she definitely needs to draw a line between humor and a serious offense. Violating someone’s consent, making jokes on rapists’ punishment, and straight-up insulting someone – these things aren’t really funny at all.
