Pakistan’s talented actress Saba Qamar in an interview recently revealed that she considers every gender to be treated equally and no one should face racial abuse.
Recently clips from her conversation with Samina Peerzada started doing the rounds on social media in which the actress opened up about working with Irrfan Khan, alongside love and the meaning it brings to her life.
I want to live life, not just spend it,” says Qamar, as she reveals she is afraid of abusive relationships and the expectation from partners to compromise.
“I would never marry a stupid man. Someone who argues, someone who fights, I cannot stand that.”
However, as the conversation progressed, the Hindi Medium actress seemed to put the burden of that issue on feminism.
“We’re still stuck in male, female, feminism. I don’t believe in you know.. I believe in gender equality.”
“Men and women are equal,” said Saba.
“They feel hurt equally. It’s not solely a man’s responsibility to get five sisters married. In Pakistan it happens that one man has 10 mouths to feed, we have to change that. We don’t have acceptance, we are not taught otherwise.”
Moreover, Samina Peerzada also agreed that everyone should be economically independent.
Saying it to Saba Qamar, the legendary host said you believe in gender equality and not feminism is like saying you believe in breathing, just not oxygen.
