Mahira Khan was the center of an important discussion on Twitter yesterday surrounding the telefilm “Aik Hai Nigar” where one of the dialogue’s called local doctors “ordinary”. When the clip reached social media, neitzens cited it as offensive to doctors especially during a pandemic when doctors were made to work long hours under grueling conditions to save lives.
Some of the twitter users who criticized this dialogue where doctors themselves, and also shared snippets of the long hours and grueling conditions they had to work in to save lives, and criticized Mahira Khan and the writers of the telefilm for making such harsh assumptions about doctors.

Dear Mahira Khan and the script writer, ‘ordinary’ doctors working tirelessly day&night in overcrowded hospitals are way better than doctors in uniforms. Labelling every other doctor as ‘ORDINARY’ is childish. Ur better than this. Please choose your dialogues wisely next time. pic.twitter.com/tG4U8oO8oV

Ordinary doctors aren’t subjecting people to discrimination.
It’s disappointing that you have to disgrace others to enhance one’s greatness. pic.twitter.com/VwC9n2agzJ

So she’d rather have only rich affording civilians get treated for non emergent issues in a hospital running over capacity with covid struck soldiers and officers who caught it while they were trying to enforce SoPs on the roads of this country.

What is an ordinary Doctor? What kind of racism is this?
The kind of service civil Drs have provided during the pandemic,the number of gems we’ve lost at the hand of this pandemic when these uniform Drs closed their doors right in the start of pandemic.
Pathetic. Shame on you https://t.co/binwaebeKC
