['Working girl can't live at home'] (Nokari karny wali larkian ghar nahi basa sakti)  'نوکری کرنے والی لڑکی گھر نہیں بسا سکتی'

These are just some of the regular sentence shareware that you can see. But for the past few days, these things have been the subject of discussion on social media. When the trend of comparing different social attitudes between India and the United States on social media reached Pakistan, here too social media users started making memes and comedy posts using Pakistani and American flags.

Most of the consumers who have compared the thinking of the people of Pakistan and the United States have tried to highlight how the 'straight talk is turned upside down and the negative side' is given in Pakistan. In addition to humor, the trend also highlights some of the bitter realities in Pakistani society, especially the problems faced by women in society and the things that make them think of some negative thinking people.

While satire and jokes are being made about this trend on social media, there is also talk of negative thinking and bitter realities regarding some aspects of women's lives in Pakistani society.

Participating in this trend, most of the women complained that in our country, a working woman is not considered good' or 'even an unmarried girl is criticized'.

Are these attitudes found only in Pakistani society?

While on the one hand there is talk of attitudes and thinking in Pakistan, on the other hand, many consumers are saying that these specific and negative thinking people are found in every country of the world.

It is also being criticized that by proving our society bad through this trend, we forget that the actions of a few people cannot be a reflection of the whole society.

Apart from Pakistan, there are many similarities in the same trend in India.
