I take pride in giving or attempting to give a 100% to my characters for each scene. This took more than that , it entailed dying inside a million times and more which will still be less than the actual victims of abuse. Lets stand together against any and all harrasment. #Ruswai
As Sameera is back home and after going through a miserable married life , her brother and father file for divorce and get the papers signed by her husband, Salman.
Sameera’s father hands over her the divorce papers to which she gets way too harsh with him. She accuses him of being the sole reason of her getting raped and then getting divorced.

Fans think that she got way too harsh on her father, as parents can never purposely bring trouble to their children and it was just a state in which his father got confused.
The episode brought tears to many when, Sameera blames her father for being the reason behind her divorce and spoiling her life.
We think that surviving in our society as a rape victim is itself a tough situation to deal with the embarrassment and shame is always for the victim rather being on the culprit.
We really hope that this drama brings more awareness in our society and let people understand that one should not hide away such incidents as this is only giving courage to the culprits to commit more of such crimes.
