As soon as the video went viral, Bilal became the biggest topic of conversation on Pakistani Twitter with thousands of people weighing in regarding this video
Many fans of Bilal are shocked to see such a behavior from their idol and are looking for answers.
While many are shocked at this behavior from the singer, one disgusting development from this video is a bunch of people who’re celebrating this incident as some sort of win against “feminism”
These folks are celebrating the fact that Bilal kicked and hit a woman because, for some twisted odd reason, this was the “equality” they think women are asking for.
Hey feminist can you see the equality ?? Which was demanded in "Aurat March"!! Well well equal rights equal fight!! She also kicked back no offense hisaab brabar. #BilalSaeed pic.twitter.com/zAiY2RJv4Z

Thankfully there are those sane voices too who do see how utterly despicable it is to hit anyone, let alone a woman
Violence against women is a big issue. Celebrating it, even as a joke, reveals not just the disgusting mindset one is born with but also the sheer hunger for violence that one is harboring.

Our Prophet Muhammad ﷺ never beat a woman.Remember the hadith,
"Fear Allah in respect of women."#BilalSaeed pic.twitter.com/lU1Qu8GS8H
