Malala has successfully managed to cause a massive uproar, yet again. Let us explain…
Twinkle Khanna is known for her efforts for women empowerment
The sassy lady recently visited Oxford University to talk about her film Padman. It is characterized as the world’s first film on menstrual hygiene.
Malala Yousafzai was also present at the event and extended full support to the cause
They exchanged ideas about menstrual health and hygiene.
To show support for the cause, the participants along with Malala and Twinkle held up a sanitary pad each
However, this picture has infuriated many Pakistanis and they just cannot digest the open display of sanitary pads
This person could not figure out what was happening
She deserves this?
Let us talk about death because pads remind us of that
It’s the devil!
Keep your pad to yourself
For those of you who don’t know
Padman is a film dealing with menstrual problems in India and tries to debunk the misconceptions related to it in modern day India
The film highlights the need to maintain a good menstrual hygiene and the story is inspired from the life of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social activist from Tamil Nadu. He was the man who built machines in rural India to manufacture low cost sanitary pads for the women of the area.
Supporting such an initiative is something we should all be doing. Especially in reference to Pakistan, where 79 percent of women do not have a good menstrual hygiene. And it is not only because of lack of resources of funds to afford these items, but it also has to do with the shame and stigma attached with menstruation. The fact that we have stay mum about such matters and keep them under wraps is what spreads misconceptions. Menstruation is nothing to be ashamed of and can be discussed publicly. The idea is only to help each other, so let’s spare Malala from some unnecessary hate.
