Here Mahira Khan also had something to say for those standing up for their rights. She said,
‘I personally think it’s imperative that those that stand with the idea of standing up for your rights should write and speak with clarity. A lot gets lost when we try to match jahaaalat with jahaalat, abuse with abuse. There MUST be a difference.’

I want to bring it on Record that I’m Truly Ashamed today because Geo has recently signed a contract with this Person.
Khalill ur Rehman Qamar has been receiving flak widely for his inappropriate language on the live television show. Many journalists and actors in the industry have come out to publicly condemn the language he has used.
The host of the show has also issued a statement.
However, this is not the first time Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar has become a part of such controversy. His recent television show Meray Paas Tum Ho which received great popularity across the world was also based on a controversial anti-women idea. Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar categorically mentioned in an interview that he did not consider all women worthy of being called women. Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar was strongly criticized for his views in the past too but he completely dismissed any criticism that he received. Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar is the writer of many famous television shows like Land Bazar, Pyarey Afzal, Sadqay Tumhare, and the recent hit Meray Paas Tum Ho
