On the host’s insistence, Sadaf continued with sharing her opinion on Feminism and said, “Our culture is our husband, if I have got married, as a wife I must know where my husband’s belongings are kept, I must iron his clothes which I usually don’t do but that’s what a wife should do. I should polish his shoes, I must know what he wants to eat and when he wants to eat because it’s my duty as a wife and that’s what I have seen growing up”.
She further added that ” This is what I believe and in my opinion Feminism is to take care of my husband and all his needs. I don’t believe in the feminism that the liberals promote.”
Sadaf’s statement was shared on different social media portals and caused severe criticism. Sadaf Kanwal was also trending on social media and tons of memes were made after her statement.
Sadaf’s statement on feminism was also discussed in a show on 24 news. On her statement, social worker Tahira Abdullah also gave her opinion.
She said, “Whatever she is doing she must do that in her house but she doesn’t have a right to impose her thoughts on anyone, who is she to tell us that we should iron our husband’s clothes or polish their shoes. And even in the house, a woman should not be forced to do so.”
In response, Khalil-Ur-Rehman came to speak up in Sadaf Kanwal’s defense and slammed social worker Tahira Abdullah.
He responded saying, “Sadaf Kanwal has not imposed anything on anyone, whatever she is doing at her home for her husband is her personal act. Where is it even happening in the houses, if a lady is doing such things for her husband it is not wrong at all, Sadaf Kanwal has not said anything wrong, people can do whatever they want to do. No one has the right to shout and impose their rules on anyone”.
