Mira Sethi Calls Out Khalil ur Rehman [Video]

Here’s why.

Mira Sethi

Mira Sethi joins the list of celebrities addressing the Khalil ur Rehman Qamar controversy. The 7 Dinn Muhabbat In actress called out the ‘gilded cage syndrome‘.

In her appearance on Mooroo’s podcast, Mira Sethi explained how the screenwriter is using the ‘oldest trick in the book‘ to encourage complacency.

“A woman doesn’t cheat by nature and the one who cheats is not a woman by nature”.

This trick AKA the ‘gilded cage syndrome‘ is a standard used to encage women. Mira Sethi explains it by claiming that saying that women are ‘by nature all pious or all loyal’ and putting them up on a pedestal, that is another way of ensnaring them.

“It set boundaries around them and the minute they transcend those boundaries, they are punished.”

Women are given this ‘acceptable behavior checklist’ in a male-dominated system. This ‘gilded cage’ prevents them from stepping out of line for fear of losing their virtue. They are conditioned to behave a certain way – docile and complacent.

One mistake and she falls from grace, but since she is considered ‘holier than thou,’ she’s reprimanded for the same mistake brashly than a man could be.

The Ye Dil Mera actress explained that women are just as fallible as men because we’re all humans.

Therefore, ascribing piety to one gender is unrealistic and unfair, while giving leeway to another gender by saying that ‘man is a sinful being,’ is also not right.

Mira Sethi even had to elaborate on the slogan of ‘Mera Jism Meri Marzi‘ to clear the hearsay and false assumptions surrounding it.

“To fixate on Mera Jism Meri Marzi is to not understand the fundamental point, that is women saying you no longer get to dictate the terms of my life and my decisions,”

She asserted that the women that came up with this slogan grew up in this very society and that they understand the cultural context. They’re just reclaiming their rights.

    • That’s correct. He couldn’t digest the fame n respect wrongly attributed to his writing capacity. Moreover he is famous for his adamant behavior n fights with colleagues like Mahmood aslam n mahira etc. he honestly need psychiatric consultation. I pity his family n friends for sufferings.

  1. The obsession with remarks or ideas of Mr Khalil ur Rehman is astonishing. Even in times of pandemic individuals are commenting on them. People please move on and help each other is these devastating times. May you and your close remain safe. Stay blessed

  2. Beautifully conveyed, in a nutshell, by a woman just as beautiful as her
    words! 👌👍
