Pakistani actress, Komal Aziz Khan, recently gave an interview that spread like wildfire.
She claimed that her landlord tried to extort money out of her and resorted to violence against her uncle and sister when he was turned down. The video circulated all corners of social media and the incident was reported by numerous publications. Komal Aziz Khan made sure her voice was heard.
While some people supported Komal in such turbulent times, she found herself apologizing for offending a certain group of people as well.
Now, she is speaking up once more.
In a public Facebook post, Komal Aziz Khan is seen addressing the issue once again. She has provided more details this time around and has also included any necessary evidence to support her claims.
Every morning I feel like I am falling into a bottomless pit. I have to shake the horrible feeling and get to work….
The post extensively describes her turmoil – one that is unimaginable to many. Komal realizes that she’s putting herself at risk by speaking out.
Not many understand the immense amount of courage it takes to stand your ground in such a situation. However, Komal herself beautifully summarizes why it’s absolutely essential to do so:
“You must wonder why I am putting my life at such great risk. It is so because some causes are larger than life. I owe it to this society to stand up to wadera culture. I reject the idea of sealing my lips in the face of absolute cruelty. I refuse to be an enabler of such blatant injustice by displaying cowardice and apathy like the next person. I refuse to be a victim due to the lack of a male figure in my life. And I implore you to do the same. Let’s all stand together for our joint rights and let’s all for once, overthrow these goons who desperately need to be taught a lesson. LET’S BE THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD.”
Many people respect her decision and are offering their complete support.
Others are hoping that she finds bigger platforms to have her voice heard further.
However, not everyone seemed to empathize with Komal…
…but Komal had an apt response.
However, a vast majority lauded Komal for speaking out…
…and hoped for the best for her.
We, too, sincerely hope that the issue is sorted out soon and Komal gets the justice she is seeking. Let us know what your thoughts are on the matter below in the comments.
