Actress Mehar Bano condemned for promoting Homosexuality
Lahore, 10th March: The ‘Aurat March’ in Pakistan has become the most hyped march since it began in 2018.
Baaghi TV: The basic purpose of the Aurat March on the occasion of International Women’s Day is to create awareness about the fundamental rights of women in our society.
Women-related issues are highlighted in this march and women raise their voice against dowry, child marriages, abuse and harassment.
However, an issue that is being highlighted in Pakistan’s Aurat March this year is legalizing homosexuality in the country. It seems like it has become a manifesto of the Aurat March.
The Aurat march which was held yesterday took place in Karachi, Lahore, and many cities of Pakistan but the unusual part noticed was people talking about homosexuality openly.
It was observed that many rallies were carrying flags and banners of LGBT for calling out to legalize homosexuality in the country.
As per reports, a boy was asked by a reporter if he supports homosexuality to which he said that according to him, Quaid-e-Azam made Pakistan a secular state where two people have a right to live happily together, whether the opposite or the same gender.
He was bold enough to urge the government that if two people of the same sex want to live together with consent they should be allowed to do so.
Shockingly, Pakistan’s emerging actress Mehr Bano who recently made a name for herself through a web series ‘Churails’ was caught giving a very controversial statement during 2021’s Aurat March.
On asking about her reviews on homosexuality, Bano remarked, “I don’t consider homosexuality a shame or a wrong-doing.”
She even expressed that this is not bad for the era or our society.

Such a bold statement by the rising star is not what we as Muslims expect!
She further expressed that ‘in her opinion misogyny is bad, violence on women is bad, but two men falling in love is not bad.’
This is not what our religion allows us to do or say. The country in which we are living freely was not made to promote homosexuality or allow people of the same gender to live together and get married.
Is this what we are trying to teach our upcoming generations?
The topic of homosexuality is itself a very sensitive topic and whether it should be legalised or not is a secondary decision.
First, there are other things that need immediate attention including our humiliating attitude towards transgender, that needs to be changed and that they should be given equal rights in our society.
