Nida Yasir Roasted for Airing ‘Saas-Bahu’ Catfight On Her Show [Video]

What did she do this time!?

Nida Yasir

Nida Yasir did it again. The woman managed to bring a far more problematic trope to her morning show. This time she arranged an arena for a saas-bahu catfight.

With all Pakistani drama serials surrounding the toxic saas-bahu (mothers-in-law and their daughters-in-law) antagonism dynamic, the last thing we need is to recreate that in real life. Yet, Nida Yasir invited mothers-in-law and their daughters-in-law to complain about each other.

The result is as problematic as one would expect, with women putting down other women, and patriarchy with the popcorn.

That’s why our ‘Soul Sister‘ Kanwal Aftab had to call this out on social media. One clip she shared from the show was of a working woman complaining about her daughter-in-law not wanting to be a stay-at-home wife.

According to this elderly woman, she employed a marriage bureau to find her the ‘perfect bahu’. While she did find a doll-like daughter-in-law, who is educated, she’s disappointed with her inability to be the designated maid.

She was spilling her heart out as though ‘how do I overcome this problem or training my bahu’ as though the third world doesn’t have real problems.

While commodifying and objectifying women is a problem we should be focusing on.

Presenting this on television is only normalizing this highly problematic mindset.
