Actor Feroze Khan has stepped in support of veteran actor Firdous Jamal as Twitter rolled out the #SupportFirdousJamal hashtag.

Jamal, an industry veteran, was recently ‘canceled‘ by Momina Duraid from her company MD Productions over his ageist and sexist remarks about Mahira Khan.

Many people think that banning the actor over what amounts to nothing more than an opinion is a bit too harsh.

Feroze Khan is bringing up the subject everyone missed, that ‘everyone is entitled to an opinion and freedom of expression‘.

Many peeps pointed out the blatant gender stereotypes and sexism that some MD Production dramas project to audiences.

Some of them asked Momina why isn’t Yasir Hussain being canceled, given his history of uncalled-for and sexist remarks?

Some people went as far as call for MD Productions to be canceled.

We really hope better sense prevails, and that the stunt Feroze Khan pulled makes people realize how absurd the controversy over Firdous Jamal’s opinion has become. The Pakistani showbiz industry needs to deal with criticism constructively.
