Farhat Ishtiaq Takes a Dig at the Hypocrisy in Pakistani Dramas and Society
Farhat Ishtiaq, the famous television and film writer, recently posted about the dual standards of the society and drama industry for men and women
Farhat Ishtiaq is one of the most successful writers in the Pakistani showbiz industry. She has many successful projects to her credit which include the globally famous drama serial Humsafar, and films Bin Roye and Parwaz hai Junoon. Farhat Ishtiaq recently took her Twitter to take a dig at the hypocrisy of the society which also reflects in the drama. In a post shared by someone on the internet, Farhat Ishtiaq stated that it explained our society and drama. According to this post, when a woman cheats she is called names and considered to be immoral.
This also reminds one of Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar’s interview where he said that he did not consider a woman not fitting the moral standards of the society worthy of being called a woman. According to this post, when a man cheats the blame is again shifted on a woman who enticed him to cheat. Also, his act is easily forgiven and he is given the benefit of doubt. Instead of accusing him of his wrongdoings, the women are told to forgive the men in the wider interest of their children.
This post also takes a dig at Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar’s television show Meray Paas Tum Ho in which everyone has their sympathies with the hero Humayun Saeed when his wife leaves him. Humayun Saeed calls her Dou Takay Ki Aurat (meaning a woman with low worth) because she cheated on him.
Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar has been under the line of fire for his problematic views against the women which he revealed in an interview. According to Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar, women were not equal to men. He said that women were capable of cheating on their spouses more than men. If a man cheated, it was also a woman’s fault because hse provoked and enticed him to do so. Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar later said that he considered his critics ignorant and mentally sick.
