Sarwat Gilani just shut down trolls who claimed awards are about nudity and tried to propagate the victim-blaming school of thought.
Actress Sarwat Gilani was one of the many stars present at the 18th Lux Style Awards held in Karachi on Sunday.
She was present alongside her ‘hero’ Fahad Mirza and they looked absolutely adorbs.
The grand event saw many stars gracing the red carpet – Mahira, Saba, Maya, Mawra, Mehwish, Meera Jee – all of them were in attendance. However, as grand as the event was, it came under fire by many for being one that wasn’t a “cultural fit” owing to the attire and Yasir’s PDA-filled proposal.
Personally, I didn’t have a problem with either. Everyone looked great and I mean, I’m not really bothered by PDA of any kind. But people still haven’t truly gotten over the dresses – the ghairat brigade is after the women who dared to dress up for the event.
Sarwat Gilani became a victim of this when she shared this picture.
A troll in the comments section claimed that award shows are now all about nudity after she posted this. However, Sarwat, the queen that she is, mildly clapped back at first, basically saying ke sab aapke focus par depend karta hai.
However, then, another person went on to talk about how one’s focus depends on what the celebs show. That’s when Sarwat went off.
“Yahan tou burkha pehni hovee aurtoun ko koi nahi chorta tou problem kaproun mai nahi NAZAR mai hai!” she stated.
And, I mean, she’s not wrong. It’s true. This idea of a woman is “asking for it” because of how she’s dressed comes from the victim-blaming school of thought and is HIGHLY problematic. The fact remains that women in our society get harassed, regardless of their attire, or any other factor for that matter. Harassment, or worse, is a common experience for most girls and women, simply because there is an inherent problem within our culture that allows these matters to go unnoticed and unaddressed.
Sarwat speaking up about it and saying it like it is is a GREAT move. Major props to her.
What do you think about this issue? Let us know in the comments.
