Recently a video clip actress Sadaf Kanwal from an interview made rounds on social media where she was asked to share her opinion on feminism, and whether the women of our society are oppressed or not.
The model replied by saying that "I don’t think that a woman is oppressed, I think she is very strong and I feel that I am so strong and you must feel the same as well. However, talking about Aurat March and feminism will instigate an entirely different debate”.
Sadaf Kanwal went on to say that "Our culture is our husband, if I am married, as a wife I must know where my husband’s belongings are kept, I must iron his clothes which I usually don’t do but that’s what a wife should do. I should pick up his shoes, I must know what he wants to eat and when he wants to eat because it’s my duty as a wife. My husband is not supposed to know all these things about me; he should know but not as much as i should know about him, and that’s what I have seen growing up”.

Sadaf’s statement sparked controversy on the internet, as it has been shared numerous of times on different social media platforms and garnered severe criticism by the majority.
However, on the contrary, writer Khalil-ur-Rehman Qamar while responding to the criticism on Sadaf’s statement said that “Sadaf Kanwal has not imposed anything on anyone, whatever she is doing at her home for her husband is her personal act. Where is it even happening in the houses, if a lady is doing such things for her husband it is not wrong at all. Sadaf Kanwal has not said anything wrong, people can do whatever they want to do. No one has the right to shout and impose their rules on anyone”.
