Pakistani writer and director, Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar has been the talk of the town since his hit drama serial ‘Mere Paas Tum Ho’ gained both criticism and favorable remarks. However, along with his stories, Rehman remains in headlines for his abusive language towards women.
He has once again grabbed headlines when he abused a female journalist Marvi Sirmed on a live-TV show.
At first, Rehman carried on with his bit of conversation about an upcoming Aurat March. But, he was interrupted by Marvi. Marvi triggered the extremely short-tempered writer with a slogan ‘Mera Jism meri Marzi.’ This little phrase got Rehman all riled up.
After that, he got into an abusive spat with Marvi and used some unacceptable and disgraceful remarks during the live show. Rehman literally abuse on live TV last night while he appeared on a talk show to share why he hates women.
Condemning the unethical behaviour of Rehman
Moreover, along with Pakistanis, Many Pakistani celebrities have been condemning the unethical behavior of Rehman.
Notables including Moonis Elahi, Sherry Rehman, Mahira Khan and Aamir Liaquat Hussain have expressed their outrage over his unethical behaviour. Mahira also questioned why a man who abused a woman on a live TV show is given projects after projects.
I am shocked at what I have just heard and seen!! Sick to the core. This same man who abused a woman on tv is revered and given project after project because of what? We are as much to blame if not more for perpetuating this thinking! #khalilurrehmanqamar

I will not accept any show on @NeoTv_Network until this anchor apologises and this abusive man boycotted. If others ( men and women ) do the same when asked for shows this kind of disrespect to women may not get impunity. Women’s rights are human rights. Enough of this nonsense https://t.co/YAJlmawCXF

Don’t understand the problem so many are having with #MeraJismMeriMarzi“-Mera jism meri marzi nahi toh kis ki marzi ho gi?? “My body is mine” is a critical component of the Life Skills Based Education classes we teach to help children protect themselves from abuse & harassment

Just saw the obnoxious incident between Khalil Saab and Marvi Sirmad. I see people writing “You can’t talk to a lady like that” and that’s where the problem lies. It’s not a matter of gender. You can’t talk to ANYONE like that! Not even an animal. Khalil Saab is a disgrace 🤦🏻♂️🤮

#khalilurrehmanqamar how DARE you disrespect a woman like that. You need to sit down and have a think about the gutters in which your mind lives. Shame on you.

Furthermore, the writer has a long history of abusing women. Earlier, he has even called on for women to ‘revenge rape‘ men since its impossible for men, according to him to control their libido. “If women want equality, they need to do the same things men are doing. Go and rob a bus, abduct a man and gang-rape him. Only then I would know there is equality”. His statement created a massive uproar on social media.
