Recently, during a live news show on GTV, where TV actress and supermodel Nadia Hussain was invited as a guest, a journalist went to the extent of comparing the female gender to a hot plate of biryani… Yes! Biryani. The show and the statement made by the journalist is a new benchmark in the instances of senseless statements made with regard to women and their role and place in society.
The live news show had three guests, one of them, being Nadia. In one of the questions, the journalist unapologetically objectifying women asked whether Nadia would not be tempted to eat a hot plate of biryani if it were placed in front of her, making a direct comparison between a living and breathing human female and a food item- which by its very nature is meant to be consumed by humans.
This rightfully agitated the actress, who called out the absurd and nonsense connection made by the GTV journalist.

Despite the absurdity of the comparison between women and edible items, this instance with Nadia Hussain has not been the first instance of its kind. Not very long ago, a debate sparked over Twitter where many users compared women who do not cover their heads with hijab to an orange which has been peeled…?
One of the people who had objected to this ridiculous comparison had been Muhammad Jibran Nasir who had responded saying “Before She is commanded to cover herself He is commanded to lower his gaze. Let her answer to God for her choice of dress and worry about your gaze as you will be questioned on that. Sab nay apni apni qabar main jana hai.”
