Actress Mansha Pasha is in hot waters as she congratulated the team of drama serial mere paas tum ho in her tweet.

“Congratulations to the entire team of Meray Paas Tum Ho! One may disagree with personal opinions but noone can deny the success and the talent of everyone involved from the writer to the actors! Heres hoping that more dramas reach such heights!” Mansha tweeted.

The actress is facing severe criticism on social media for congratulating the entire team of drama. Many users took to social media and lashed out at her for promoting misogyny by supporting the TV Serial.

“Congratulations for spreading discrimination against women. Congratulations for promoting masculinity and hate content. If dramas like Mere Paas Tum Ho get unusual appreciation, despite such misogynist content it means society should review its taste and change its way of thinking,” a user tweeted.

Mansha Pasha in her response said that a piece of fiction shouldn’t be judged on the basis of morality of its characters.

 

 

“It is a story. The industry produces a wide variety of dramas and at the end of the day it is an entertainment industry. Did you search for morality in Game of Thrones? In Hannibal? In You? A drama needs to be well written and its characters should be interesting. End of,”she said.

Her observations about the show sparked the debate online.

 

“Entertainment or not, media shapes our worldview and people who create such content have responsibility and need to be aware of the type of messages they are giving, especially on topics that are already widely misunderstood by a large number of people here in our country” a user said.

“You got it wrong, Mansha. Prime time media shapes the opinions in the society so they are responsible for balanced views. Every other drama on TV is bashing women, imagine how brains of ten-year-old kids watching these dramas are shaping up,” another tweeted.

The actress agreed with the point that content can influence people’s mind to some extent. However she added that stories with a sense of social responsibility shouldn’t be obligatory and hence should be a writer’s own choice.

“There is an influence yes. But as i argued before, morality should be on the discretion of the makers. Many kinds of stories should be allowed to make it to screen and the watcher should be able to discern what to follow. The audience isn’t a mindless zombie,” the actress pointed out.

On Khalil Ur Rehman Qamar, Mansha highlighted Tv serials written by him in which women were seen positively. She gave the example of her drama Mera Naam Yousuf hai.

 Drama Serial Mere Paas Tum Ho has created various controversies for portraying women negatively and promoting misogyny.
