Once again, screenwriter Khalil ul Rehman Qamar is back in the mainstream media with his misogynist behavior towards women.

The ‘Teri Meri Khanaiyan’ co-writer was present on a panel alongside with Sahil Adeem where they exchanged some heated words with a female audience member who questioned the duo on their regressive views towards women rights. On one occasion, Sahil said that 95% of women in Pakistan were uneducated, prompting outrage.

A social media user shared this clip on her X account, calling for the duo to be banned from live television.

“Such archaic views should be condemned and have no place in modern discourse. He must be held accountable for his irresponsible remarks,” the post said.


Social media users lauded the woman for bravely standing up to the screenwriter.
