Pakistani writer and director Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar recently came out in support of actor Sadaf Kanwal, in response to the her comments on feminism, marriage and the role of women in Pakistani society.

The Mere Paas Tum Ho writer said ‘All women who are looking for their husband’s socks or are polishing his shoes or ironing his clothes, are doing it out of love, hardly happens that somewhere it is happening by order’….Sadaf Kanwal hasn’t said anything wrong, what she does in her own home is entirely her choice.

The debate erupted after the model appeared in an ARY News interview on ‘Hamare Mehman’, with husband Shehroz Sabzwari, where the conversation got candid and Sadaf Kanwal shared her views regarding what she considers is Pakistani culture and the obligations of women in this society.

Sadaf also shared some rules of her life as a wife. ′My rules are simple, you should consider your husband as husband, his status should be high. Because he’s a man he earns, he provides earning for the children, I also earn but I cannot stand in competition with him’, shared Sadaf.

Ever since, a debate has broken out over social media with netizens sharing their own personal opinions regarding the issue. Is it necessary for all women to act as homemakers? And men alone are responsible for earning for the household? Let us know your opinions in the comments below!
