The upcoming web series, Dhoop Ki Deewar, featuring the star couple Ahad Raza Mir and Sajal Aly were trending for a while after the trailer was launched. At first, people were liking the acting by the stars but then when they focused on the storyline, Twitter erupted with backlash.
Indo-Pak Conflict on Dhoop Ki Deewar
Mostly, the idea about the ban was a direct result of the ever-deteriorating Indo-Pak relations. But for some people, it was also about Kashmir. They said that the atrocities by India in Kashmir are continuing; we are not holding them accountable, instead, we are telling a story that is highlighting India as a victim.
Twitter Trends with #BanDhoopKiDeewar
Social media was loaded with the hashtag BanDhoopKiDeewar. Netizens could not digest the trailer of the web series because they felt that it would deem their patriotism invalid. Hence, be it the actors, writers, or directors, everyone was openly being shamed.Of course, one can say that this was just the trailer and that the show features kids of both Indian and Pakistan army mourning for their fathers. But the fact, that it shows the Pakistani girl more fierce, and the Indian boy more traumatized gives the vibe that India is suffering more.
Indian proxies are killing our soldiers in Balochistan and we are sponsoring the web series based on Anti state and Kashmir narrative. Shame! #BanDhoopKiDeewar#DhoopKiDeewar pic.twitter.com/17U5tq39bc

How could we allow to telecast such non sense serial when we are witnessing about 2 years of curfew in Kashmir? Writer of this serial as well as whole cast should be ashamed who seems to be supporting brutality of Indian forces in IOK. #BanDhoopKiDeewar pic.twitter.com/gGM3jzA8OY

#BanDhoopKiDeewar in Pakistan, its cast, story writer, producer and facilitator should be asked who gave them right to defame thousands of Pakistani and kashmiri shaheeds.

How can we allow such drama to play in Pakistan which is understating the sacrifices of our army and Kashmiris
As PM #ImranKhan has said that " peace between India and Pakistan is contingent upon kashmir issue"

We haven’t yet seen the web series so we do not know what the story is. Since the Zee5 channel is an India property, maybe just maybe the story is Pro India. But the problem is that seventy four years, there has always been hatred between the two nations.
Soldiers suffer the most
Whenever there is a conflict on state level, there is a direct effect on the borders. Whether we suffer or not, the soldiers from both sides suffer losses. And the families of the soldiers have to go through even worse; having to lose their loved ones. It is a story about that. It is a story about losses on both sides. Because the truth is; the conflict between India and Pakistan, does take lives of soldiers more than anyone else.
If we start preaching love instead of hatred, maybe we won’t lose as many soldiers as we do fighting on the Indo-Pak border or fighting for Kashmir. But does standing for love makes it alright to compromise on your patriotism? This question requires some brainstorming.
While you brainstorm, drop comments on whether you will be watching the series airing June 25?
