The panel that included Khalil-ur-Rehman, Marvi Sirmed, and JUIF’s spokesperson were discussing ‘Mera Jism Meri Marzi’ slogan in regards to the Aurat March where Rehman uttered horrendous slurs during the argument on the national television.

Rehman’s appearance on TV is proof that the institutions provide him with screen time and permit him to utter such slurs. People are calling out for a permanent ban of Khalil-ur-Rehman on social media.

Shehzad Roy, who has recently achieved a milestone by pushing a law to pass for banning corporal punishment for children tweeted in support of  “My body is mine” saying that it “is a critical component of the Life Skills Based Education classes we teach to help children protect themselves from abuse & harassment.”

The most sought out actress of the Pakistani film industry, Mahira Khan highlighted in her tweet that despite several public attacks on women by Qamar, he is yet again revered and given project after project by leading channels in the industry.

 

Others came forward in support of the stance on Twitter and expressed their concerns including Gharidah Farooqi, Benazir Shah, Yasser Latif Hamdani, and Ayesha Siddiqa. 

Yasser Latif Hamdani also requested Pemra to permanently ban the appearance of Qamar on TV Channels.
