In a viral video clip, Qasim Ali Shah, while answering a woman's question, said, "How to be a good wife is not taught anywhere."

"Whether you go to a school, up to 10 years matriculation degree, how to be a good wife is not taught anywhere," he said. In the video, Qasim Ali Shah continued, "Although two roles are very important in a woman's life, one of which is that of a good wife and the other that of a good mother." He added that it is not taught anywhere in school, it is not taught in college and it is not taught at all in university and the only source that remains is what is a good mother and a good wife, that source of training is home, ie the girl looked at her mother.

The video clip, which went viral on social media, is part of Qasim Ali Shah's Q&A session in which he answered a question from a woman named Hoor Fatima. Hur Fatima had asked in her question whether working women do not prove to be good mothers of children.

In this regard, Pakistani comedian and theater actor Shehzad Ghias Shaikh, while sharing the video clip, wrote critically, "Why are there girls' schools if they can't teach them how to enslave their husbands?"

Criticizing Qasim Ali Shah's statement, another user asked why men are not taught to be better human beings when Pakistan is facing serious problems like rape, honor killings, acid attacks, domestic violence, forced marriages.

Another user said that Qasim Ali Shah has said about the needs of women that they have to be good mothers and good wives.

Journalist Aafia Salam wrote that the education of becoming a good father and husband starts in kindergarten, right?
