  • He abused and cursed Marvi Sirmed after she interrupted him.

Popular writer Khalilur Rehman Qamar has once again came under the wrath of netizens after he cursed a woman on live television.

Appearing on Neo TV,  the Meray Pass Tum Ho writer was asked about the upcoming 'Aurat March'. The writer proceeded to say that when the court has barred usage of slogans like Mera jism, Meri marzi (My body, my choice), then it hurts him deeply to see Marvi Sirmed use these slogans.

Sirmed, who too was a part of the panel interupted him by chanting 'Mera jism, Meri marzi' and kept on repeating it. In response, Rehman got furious and shouted at her to 'not to interrupt him' and started abusing her.

"Tere jism men hai kya? (What is in your body) Don’t talk in between. Thookta nahi hai koi tere jism pe (No one would even spit on your body). Shut up you b****. Beech men nahi bolo (Don’t talk in between)," he yells at Sirmed.

The TV host instead of stopping the writer, asked Sirmed to stay quiet and speak on her turn.

Following this, Pakistani actor Mahira Khan who has also worked with him in Sadqey Tumharay, took to Twitter and expressed her shock at the language the writer used on live television. "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," she tweeted.

Khan was not the only one, prominent personalities like Shehzad Roy, Amir Liaquat, Sherry Rehman and others took to their Twitter handle to critize the writer.
