Many are openly voicing their stance against Mere Paas Tum Ho’s writer Khalil ur Rehman Qamar’s seemingly misogynist views. The writer is under a lot of scrutiny these days as people are sharing various different clips of the writer where he has expressed his views on what qualifies a woman as a good or a bad woman.
Actress and writer, Mira Sethi recently shared a clip of the writer from Mere Paas Tum Ho’s special show and called the writer out for claiming that any woman who cheats is not a woman by nature and therefore deserves to be mistreated while men who cheat can be forgiven.
A cast member of Mere Paas Tum Ho, model and actress Rehmat Ajmal also took a stand against Khalil ur Rehman Qamar as she wrote that she regrets being a part of play written by Khalil ur Rehman, “I am not proud to be a part of something that is so compromising and ill-informed.”
“It was my first ever telecom project and I am learning. Please extend new, struggling artists some leeway as we are in the process of learning – we are also trying very hard to make our own mark solely based on our merit.” She concluded the note.
More recently, Kinnaird Collage has been forced to cancel an interactive session with the Mere Paas Tum Ho writer, as students and alumni of the university complained that an all-girls institute should not invite a person such as Qamar, who openly practices misogyny. The event which was scheduled to be held on January 22, was then called off.
Recently, Qamar was also criticized by activist Tahira Abdullah and on a live show for his views about women.
