Samina Peerzada & Farhat Ishtiaq Just Called Out ‘Mere Paas Tum Ho' For Portraying Women Negatively

Samina Peerzada and Farhat Ishtiaq called out the misogyny

Needless to say, ‘Mere Paas Tum Ho’ has swoon everyone by the commendable and exceptional episode that was aired this Saturday. The dialogues of Danish, especially, took the internet by storm. Although there were mixed views and reactions regarding this episode, writer of Ye Dil Mera, Farhat Ishtiaq and the versatile actor Samina Peerzada have come forward to express their disappointment in the portrayal of women in Mere Paas Tum Ho.

 

Samina Peerzada and Farhat Ishtiaq just became two of the biggest voices speaking out against the negative portrayal of women in the popular drama ‘Mere Paas Tum Ho

Famed drama writer Farhat Ishtiaq supported the idea that our society has knack for double standards when it comes to the portrayal of men and women, and the drama is fully supporting the cause.

When a woman cheats on her husband, she’s given shameful labels and is publicly disgraced, which by the way, was appreciated by the drama followers as the dou takkay kee larki phrase was met with A LOT of praise. But, when a man cheats his wife, women are expected to forgive him because he made an honest mistake and mard hai, ghalti ho hee jati hai. It was highlighted how this drama has encouraged this idea; thus, further normalizing the discrimination.

 

Samina Peerzada and Fathat Ishtiaq just addressed how uncomfortable it is to see women being reduced to very strict moral standards as decided by the men in their life

Veteran actress, Samina Peerzada, too, highlighted how men were involved in ‘fixing’ the price of Mehwish; yet, somehow had the audacity to call her dou takay kee larki.

The victimization of men in the latest episode, especially, has further strengthened the idea of a burri aurat as defined by men. There are so many drama serials that highlight men cheating, yet no woman has ever gotten such a powerful character to rub that in the face of her cheating husband. In the end, a wife is mostly shown taking the husband back after he shows his regret.

Do Mardon nay Aapas main mehvish ki qeemat tai Karli aur phir usay do takay ka keh dia. Yani aurat ki apni koi marzi hai hi nahi. Wah ray pidar shahi zehan aur soch!

Farhat Ishtiaq further showed her discontent regarding romanticizing the role of Danish; ultimately making it one big misogynist drama serial

 

People are appreciating Samina Peerzada and Farhat Ishtiaq for their stance regarding the prevailing double standards in our society

 

Women shared how they could relate the statement because of their own personal experiences

 

ARY’s CEO just responded to the backlash and called them “jealous”

Mohammad Jerjees Seja, came out to urge ‘entertainment industry people’ to hold back their negative comments and enjoy the drama, for it reflects both sides of the society.

 

And some people agreed with him that people are jealous of the success of Mere Paas Tum Ho

The bashing received by Mere Paas Tum Ho‘s latest episode is convincing, and true, to an extent. Couple this with the utterly disgusting opinions the writer of this show has about women, it only make sense how dangerous this show can be for women’s safety in the real world.

Women face discrimination everyday in doing literally the same thing as men, yet they are the ones to undergo all the suffering. Such a negative portrayal of women in the drama has definitely disappointed a lot of people.

 

People Are Scandalized That Mehwish And Shahwar Had Their Own Suhaag Raat In ‘Mere Paas Tum Ho’
