Looks like someone else is making a jab at Abrar-ul-Haq for his comments about Baby Shark. Yasir Hussain posted a video of Iqra Aziz singing Baby Shark to their son Kabir.
Along with the video of Iqra Aziz singing Baby Shark, Yasir Hussain also shared another video in which Kabir is listening to The Quran. The Nachh Na Jaanay actor posted the videos captioned;
“Never judge a mother. Woh bachy ko kesy palti hai kya sikhati hai kya sunati hai. Agar mai ne yeh sab pehly dekh lia hota k maa ka bachy ko palna kitna mishkil hai toh mai apni amma se kabhi aankh mila k baat bhi na kar pata. Maa ka rutba bohot bara hai. Aaj ya kal, hamesha maa maa hai.”
Yasir Hussain later shared another Instagram story about mothers. He asked people to value women.
“Aurat k muqam ko is dunya mein koi bhi challenge krne ki koshish na kary. (No one should try to challenge a woman’s place in this world) Wo sirf Billo aur Raano aur Nasreen nahi. (She’s not just Billo, or Raano, or Nasreen) Wo maa, behen, beti, doctor, astronaut, engineer aur boht kuch hai. (She’s a mother, sister, daughter, doctor, astronaut, engineer, and so much more)”
Earlier, the Lahore Se Aagay actor supported Nadia Hussain for slamming Abrar-ul-Haq on his statement. She said;
“Maa ki godh se kalma sunte sunte ‘Nach Punjaban’ ka safar kese kia? (How did you go from listen to Kalma in your mother’s lap to Nach Punjaban?)”
At a convention to mark Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) three years performance, Abrar-ul-Haq expressed his annoyance over Baby Shark and parenting with screens. The Billo singer said;
“Mothers would recite Kalima to us and nowadays, mothers give mobile phones to their children, which play Baby Shark.”
Parenting With Screens
Critique towards parenting with screens is nothing new. In fact, it’s emerging as a global issue. Studies have proven a reduced attention span in children and screen time. There are healthier ways to pacify a child.
Additionally, research has shown children don’t interact online the way they do in real life. Thus causing long-term behavior pattern changes such as reduced sociability in real life.
On the other hand, the responsibility of parenting doesn’t fall on mothers alone. Scientifically, raising human babies is an extremely difficult task, which warrants the efforts of both parents.
