Recently, impeccable actress, Sarah Khan, on her Instagram account, posted a photo of one of these play cards and wrote, “This is something that you all need to understand that ‘parhai kee saath 100 feesad tarbiat ki bhe zaroorat hotee hai (TARBIAT MATTERS A LOT)’ This is not how it should be done. Are you asking for your rights or are you trying to disrespect other women? If one is siting home in pardah taking care of her man and the family , she’s busy maintaining her home you’re pointing out it to be wrong and naming it ‘laash’ ? If this is what our women want as their ‘right’ ! I’m with our men, totally.”
