Showbiz Personalities Divided Over Prime Minister Imran Khan's Nudity Statement

While political and social figures have reacted to Prime Minister Imran Khan's linking the growing incidents of sexual harassment and rape to 'obscenity' in the country, showbiz personalities are also unhappy with his statement.

Prime Minister Imran Khan on April 4, while answering the questions of the people directly on the telephone, in response to a question about the increasing number of rape cases in the country, linked nudity or bold women's clothing with 'rape' incidents. Imran Khan did not explicitly say that women's bold clothing is the cause of rape, but he linked nudity and obscenity to such incidents. The Prime Minister had said that "the more obscenity there is in the society, the more it will have effects and that not every human being has the power to stop himself".

His statement was criticized by other women, including several political and social figures, while the majority of showbiz personalities also resented him. However, according to some personalities, the Prime Minister's statement was misinterpreted. In a series of tweets in the wake of the Prime Minister's statement, Hamza Ali Abbasi reminded both men and women of the veil and the religious injunctions to protect themselves. Hamza Ali Abbasi said that it is written in the religious book that both men and women have sexual attraction for each other, so both were instructed to protect their modesty and men were ordered to keep their eyes down.

Hamza Ali Abbasi did not explicitly support or disagree with the Prime Minister's statement, but advised both men and women. Although musician Rohail Hayat did not explicitly support Imran Khan in his tweet, he opined that the Prime Minister's statement was misinterpreted. Rohail Hayat tried to reassure the people that the Prime Minister in his statement condemned the 'rape' incidents and as a leader, he stated the facts about the effects of pornography.

Actor Osman Khalid Butt also tweeted about the Prime Minister's statement and said that the Prime Minister in a way blamed the person who was affected. Khalid Usman Butt wrote that the Prime Minister's statement that not every man has the power to control himself means promoting sexual violence.

At the same time, he advised the Prime Minister to enforce the law in the streets, appoint police personnel so that peace could prevail. Osman Khalid Butt in his tweet gave statistics of daily incidents of rape and sexual violence in Pakistan and wrote that 11 rape cases are reported daily in the country.

Actor Adnan Siddiqui also disagreed with the Prime Minister's statement and wrote that it is not wise that some men do not have the power to control themselves. He termed the Prime Minister's statement on women's dress and their choice as tantamount to patriarchal thinking. Actress Rabia Chaudhry in a short tweet condemned the statement of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Amna Elias released a video of the prime minister's statement, apologizing to her and making it clear that she would not consider him her prime minister if he did not apologize. He said in the video that after Quaid-e-Azam and Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, Pakistanis listen to Imran Khan the most. When he asked the nation to watch 'Ertugrul Ghazi', the nation saw it. When suggested, people read the book.

Amna Ilyas criticized the Prime Minister for his statement on women's clothing, citing examples of rapes of animals in the country.

Because incidents of ill-treatment of children and animals are also reported in the country.
