Juda Huay Kuch Is Tarah

Despite being a ‘champion of traditional values’ people are uncomfortable with the non-traditional subject matter of Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar’s Juda Huay Kuch Is Tarah.

Produced by Momina Duraid under banner MD Productions, and written by Khalil-ur-Rehman Juda Huay Kuch Is Tarah follows a young woman stuck in a love triangle. Judah Huay Kuch Is Tarah casts Dur-e-Fishan, Hassan Khan, and Nabeel Zuberi in lead roles.

As the episodes of the drama serial air on television, people are seeing content they don’t like. Netizens have commented how inappropriate the drama serial is based on societal norms. What is this subject causing discomfort? Incest.

 

People even called out Prime Minister Imran Khan to complain.

Audiences heavily criticized the writer for penning a drama serial surrounding such subjects and demanded a ban on such drama serials. They even demand that action be taken against the television network for producing and airing this drama.

 

It is pertinent to mention that drama serials like Udaari and Dar Si Jati Hai Sila faced backlash over highlighting vices in society that make everyone uncomfortable. Turning a blind eye to such crimes is how they run rampant. However, Juda Huay Kuch Is Tarah follows a consensual, incestual relationship.

This is not a story of familial rape, a rampant issue in Pakistan. Previously, social worker and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senator Shandana Gulzar has voiced how most cases of child abuse aren’t reported as they’re cases of incest and familial rape.

Rather than preserving the safety and security of the child, the crime is covered up to keep up appearances. In a country where familial rape is such a huge problem showcasing a consensual, incestual relationship on television isn’t helping anyone.
