Soon after ‘Aurat March’ was held on International Women’s Day last week, it initiated a debate on social media and received much criticism.
While there were a number of Pakistani celebrities who supported the Aurat March, many stars talked against it and said that it did not represent Pakistani culture.
Similarly, the actress turned host Veena Malik took to her Twitter account to express her annoyance and said that it only brought humiliation to Women.
Who planned and funded this controversial #auratmarch2019
Because this brought Humiliation to women of Pakistan instead of Anything positive like empowering them etc.

Soon after she tweeted, the internet users were quick to remind Veena that these women who she called humiliating were the ones who stood in support for her when mullahs imposed fatwas on her.
Moreover, the ‘Lahore Se Aagey’ actor Yasir Hussain also took a funny jibe at Veena Malik through his Instagram stories.
Look what people have to say!
The women who defended you after controversy around you for participating big boss, are the women who brought Aurat march to the streets of Pakistan. Because we believe in women’s agency.
