It seems that Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar became a new controversy King. As first he makes misogynist remarks on a TV show, then he refuses to apologize. Now, the writer has taken a complete turn and referred to the acclaimed director and actor Adnan Malik as a “hijra”, transgender. As we know the entire nation has divided ever since a heated argument arose between Khalil ur Rehman Qamar and Mari Sirmed on national TV. Most of the A-Lister celebs named the writer out for his ill-mannerism and foul mouth and have been boycotting him.
However, the controversial writer has also garnered a lot of support from the general public who believe bold slogans such as “Mera Jism Meri Marzi” do not coincide with the teachings of Islam. Among several celebrities who conveyed disdain on the writer’s behavior, Adnan Malik who portrayed Khalil ur Rehman Qamar in Hum TV’s Sadqay Tumharay also opened up about playing the character of the questionable writer in the drama.
Adnan Malik’s Statement
In his social media statement he said, “I think this sums up my views in general regarding KUQ & me playing him in Sadqay Tumhare”. Adnan Malik also emphasized on the power of the slogan ‘Mera Jisam Meri Marzi’. “I’m in awe of the sheer power of 4 words strung together: #MeraJismMeriMarzi This slogan has destabilized centuries of patriarchy & triggered a man renown for his eloquence; unmasking a rabid, inarticulate, hate-spewing misogynist. Just 4 words. How frail our male egos can be.”
