Aurat March will be held all across Pakistan on Women’s Day. Just like the common man, the celebrities too have been sharing their opinions about the Aurat March. Although there are a lot of male celebrities in the industry but few of them showed their support for Aurat March. Most of the male celebrities decided not to talk about the issue. Social media is the easiest place to reach people yet many of the celebrities decided not to jump into this discussion. There were handful of celebrities who shared their opinions openly. Some of these celebrities also spent a lot of time engaging with those people who were criticizing them. It can be even more tricky for a celebrity to share their opinion on social media regarding something which is considered ‘controversial’. Clearly, there are some celebrities who do not hold back while showing their support for women.
Here are those Pakistani male celebrities who showed support for Aurat March in their own way.
Osman Khalid Butt
While extending his support for Aurat March, Osman Khalid Butt did not hold back. He was one of those few male celebrities who not only supported the most controversial slogan right now ‘mera jism meri marzi but he also announced that his sister was part of the Aurat March last year. He also said that his sister will be taking part in Aurat March this year too and she will be holding a placard. He also invested a lot of time in explaining to everybody what different slogans meant and why Pakistani women needed this march.
Hamid Mir is a political analyst and a well-known journalist. Hamid Mir also turned to social media to extend his support for Aurat March. He shared detailed information about the first-ever Aurat March in Pakistan. He also mentioned that the most educated men of that time were there to support women at that time. Hamid Mir also said that his daughter was also going to be part of the Aurat March. He decided to make it clear to everyone that for him Aurat March had meaning because of the way he was brought up.
Adnan Malik played the role of Khalil-ur-Rehman himself in the drama serial Sadqay Tumhare. He strongly condemned Khalil-ur-Rehman’s actions and he also showed his support for the Aurat March. Adnan Malik was also part of the Aurat March last year. Adnan Malik will surely be one of those celebrities who will be seen on the Aurat March.
Shafaat Ali rose to fame when his parody videos went viral. Later on, he ventured into acting and hosting. Shafaat Ali is clearly a staunch feminist. He did not invest his time debating with people on social media but he himself is organizing a special Women Conference for showing his support for women. Shafaat Ali also shared his views about the slogan ‘mera jism meri marzi’ in a tweet.
Asim Raza is a big name of the entertainment industry. He has directed some of the biggest films in the last few years. He shared his opinion through a social media post. He is a proud feminist who is going to be extending his support for Aurat March.
Aamir Liaquat supports Aurat March but with certain reservations. Although he has been actively speaking against Khalil-ur-Rehman on social media, he did not show his support for Aurat March until he posted this video. He is all for the rights of women and he believes that all those women asking for these rights should be supported.
