Last 6 months has really been an eye opening journey for me! From when I signed #KaisaHaiNaseeban and decided to take up the role of Mariam (a victim of marital abuse in a foreign land) to today when the character has been receiving immense love, the drama has been getting the ratings on TV and trending on YouTube, and my social media is getting filled with emotionally charged messages every day! Embracing Mariam has really made me understand the plight of the women who have suffered and survived or continue to remain silent and live this life!! There are real Mariam’s out there, around us, maybe within our own friends or family and they need our help … and together we need to help them and build awareness about violence against women to make sure Pakistan’s future is better from today! Violence against women in Pakistan is #NotAGame – it is punishable by law and #iPledge to never commit, excuse or remain silent about any form of domestic violence!! Are you with me?
