Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar

Despite prominent TV channels setting a precedent and refusing to work with Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar, the scriptwriter continues to be invited on talk shows to speak about women. His recent insensitive remarks about Noor Mukadam have the public saying ‘enough!.’

However, will the industry follow suit?

This time, the Landa Bazaar writer questioned the timing of Noor Mukadam’s violent murder and linked it to the ‘dwindling narrative of feminists‘. Yes, he implied a woman’s murder was part of some conspiracy to promote feminism.
