Leading Pakistani actress Nadia Jamil has criticized Pakistani dramas, saying that a woman is portrayed as an affected person and a man as a hero in Pakistani dramas.
In a post on Instagram, she wrote about why the number of incidents of violence, harassment, and insults to women’s role in Pakistani dramas is so high, and all this is done by the men with whom these women live. They are dying in theaters. She added that what kind of message do these stories convey, why is it shown that a woman stays out of the room all night of her wedding and men see her crying, and in the very next scene, love is shown, why Why why

Uff the amount of women getting beaten up, slapped, abused and dragged around in Pakistani TV plays, by men they are still desperate to stay with. What kind of message do these stories project?! Why would you stand outside your room all night in your wedding night, because he three you outbid the room and then profess your weepy, undying love in the next scene. Why why why? Why would you get slapped, smacked and cussed then sit weeping mascara over your face as you burn in love for your abuser?! Makes me physically ill. Too many TV plays wanting to see women as a victim and men their hero's. We are not victims. We are Alhamdolillah blessed by Allah with the capacity to respect our self. Can we see some of that self respect on TV please. Ugh 🤦🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️🙄 #sayNOtoabuse #domesticviolence #womenempowerment
Nadia Jameel said, why are you slapped and abused, and then the same woman with a smile on her face is seen crying for this man as if she is dying in his love.
“All such stories make me physically ill. In many TV dramas, a woman is portrayed as a victim and a man as a hero. We are not compelled. Can we see such self-respect in TV dramas? It may be recalled that the well-known actress had recently contracted breast cancer, after which she had gone to London for treatment, where she has undergone surgeries.
