A lady identified as Maham through her lawyer moved Lahore’s civil court and filed a plea to halt the last episode of the drama, featuring Ayeza Khan, Humayun Saeed, Hira Mani, Adnan Siddiqui and others.
In the petition, the lady has stated that the drama had put negative impact on the Pakistani women as it continued to downgrade them in the society.
The court, after hearing the arguments of Maham, has issued notices to the concerned for January 24, 2020.
The last episode of Mere Paas Tum Ho is set to be aired in cinemas on January 25, 2020.
Though many fans of the show would argue that the drama is unique as for the first time a female character has been guilty of cheating on her husband. However, there’s nothing wrong with this, it’s the way the drama is shot that irks many sensible people. The constant degradation of women cannot be overlooked. Also, the writer of the show Khalil – ul – Rehman Qamar, a self- proclaimed feminist, has gone on tv and ridiculed the existence of women and the feminist movement.
