This Aurat March Poster that transformed Pakistani men into emotional wrecks!

In Karachi & Lahore many feminists groups on 8th March organized “Aurat March” to celebrate Women’s Day but their slogans and demands became a topic of fun on social media. One playcard ‘Khud Khana Garam Karlo’ became viral on social media on which people reacted sarcastically.

As soon as pictures of this poster made their way online, the backlash was immense. Popular Facebook pages took offense to the post and crafted memes mocking desi feminism and women in general.

I would like suggest to do some research on Aurat March.

So, to this guy character-assassinating the woman carrying the now infamous ‘khana’ poster, grow up!


We WEREN’T prepared for is how one little poster about food — one poster among the hundreds of posters carried at these aurat marches — would transform a vast number of Pakistani men into emotional wrecks.

 

 

And finally  there are sane men too.

Sadly, there are few.

While the Aurat March was concerned about issues OTHER than dinner.
