Karachi students commemorating World Contraception Day celebrations shocked Pakistanis
Why are Pakistanis so afraid of sex? Pakistanis have always shied away from discussing taboo topics. So, when finally a medical college openly discussed these topics to educate their students some people could not really digest the entire thing. Let us fill in you with the details of it.
Students in Karachi marked World Contraception Day whereas for the rest of us it came and went away pretty quietly
In a country like Pakistan where population control because of increasing poverty and lack of resources is a huge issue, the memorialization of this day was extremely important but khair, that’s a discussion for later. A very famous medical college in Pakistan, Dow University of Health and Sciences, celebrated the World Contraception Day. The celebration of the day intended to introduce the students to contraceptives and products available in the country.
Someone expressed how scandalized they were by seeing university students in Karachi learning about contraception
The conversation was started off by the people who reduced the meaning of the event to a mere marketing campaign of a condom selling brand. Soon, Pakistanis couldn’t help but fight over the event.
There were people who advocated the idea of NOT discussing the taboo topics because haw haye
A few even accused the brand of promoting premarital sex
And there were people who couldn’t help but cope with the silly outrage by joking
They even claimed that the university and the brand just aim to promote safe sex and proper contraception which is highly needed in Pakistan
People tried to explain why these students in Karachi discussing contraception showed why sex education is a dire need of our society
Contraceptives are important when increasing population, poverty and lack of resources are all a problem. Pakistan has these exact issues. You can’t stop people from having sex, it’s human nature. You just can’t stop people from acting on their basic instinct so the best way to deal with controlling population and preventing spread of sexually transmitted illnesses is to educate them how to be safe when they do engage in sexual activity.
