Aye Musht-e-Khaak: Netizens Irked By Mustajab’s Psychotic Behavior In Latest Episode

Trigger Warning!

Aye Musht-e-Khaak

Aye Musht-e-Khaak garners even more criticism with it’s recent episode as the drama serial depicts violence on-screen.

In a recent episode, we see Shiza (Nimra Khan) tell-all to Dua (Sana Javed) and our ‘protagonist’ Mustajab (Feroze Khan) resorts to abuse. Now we’re used to the actor essaying some very problematic tropes onscreen, but the violence against women just took it too far.

One of the most problematic aspects of the scene and the script was how it was written to depict that Shiza antagonized Mustajib. Hence in a way justifying the violence against ‘women like Shiza’. We all know how malleable ‘women like her’ are in order to condone violence against women.

 

Speaking of just blaming the woman! Since he’s not a grown man that can make his own decision.

 

On the other hand, there’s also the matter of Mustajab wanting Dua to accept him as he is. Which is the baseline of a healthy relationship. Yet, he’s unwilling to accept her basic autonomy to decide if she even wants to stay with him.

 

Mustajab’s emotional manipulation was already a problem now he’s even resorting to coercion and planning to blatantly violate consent.

As for those asserting, ‘the script demanded such visualization’, all this could have been implied without showcasing violence on primetime television which we know gradually normalizing behavior.
