Uryani and Fahashi in Pakistani Media

By Amna Gilani • Sep 14th, 2012 • Category: Features • 10 Comments

Katrina Kaif in Veet advertisement showing her milky soft legs can surely be considered as something inappropriate given the Pakistani culture and background. But branding the whole media and its programs including soap and morning shows as livid is quite an exaggeration.

I simply don’t get this debate because these things are the pastime of the nations who have nothing else to ponder upon. If such debate starts hitting the mainstream in countries like Turkey or Malaysia then it makes some sense, but in Pakistan? We have terrorism, load-shedding, joblessness, hunger, corruption, governance, Balochistan, Sindh, Dengue, Floods and all sorts of issues on our hands, and yet we are worried about Pakistan becoming a sin country.

Gen Zia was one worst thing happened to this country as he used the name of Islam to keep the status quo in the country and we are still suffering of his remains, and one of his morbid gift was to create confusion regarding Islam and its teachings for the Pakistanis. That is why we still are divided and confused as whether Taliban are our enemies or friends, and that is why this debate about exactly what Fahashi is.

  1. >…and that is why this debate about exactly what Fahashi is.

    Late night parties, discos, dating, obsession with fashion, girls dressing s*xy, people looking down at the burqa, pre-marital relationships, people praising fashion shows where women wear little clothing, etc. You can also listen to Maulana Tariq Jameel :)

  2. >But branding the whole media and its programs including soap and morning shows as livid is quite an exaggeration.

    Soap operas are all about the usual saas/bahu nonsense whereas the problem with morning shows is that some have started featuring fortune tellers.

    >We have terrorism, load-shedding, joblessness, hunger, corruption, governance, Balochistan, Sindh, Dengue, Floods and all sorts of issues on our hands, and yet we are worried about Pakistan becoming a sin country.

    My view is that sin is the reason for most of the problems out there, including all the above mentioned ones.

  3. Yes,yusha is right,all these sins have prevailed because we have failed to impose islamic sharia in pakistan.be hyai nd fahashi as quran has directed is the worst sin the islamic civilization is suffring now.surah noor nd ahzab have directed the muslim women for pardah even to her close relative na mehrams like brother of husband etc.and we r happy to watch cat walks and nothng can we sale without showing bint e hwa in publicity.islam has prohibited all this nonsense.

  4. @Gogi: Islam is not meant to be imposed. It has to be followed willingly. Azab is because of collective sins, of which lewdness is a part.

  5. Uryani and Fahashi is basically in the eyes. Keep your mind and eyes clear and everything will be alright.

  6. wow,short and straight.thats what this article was!Hats off to you madam.you got my vote of approval,no doubt about it.you’re absolutely right in everything you said.let me add one more thing though.So we started,Mr Jinnah made pakistan.everything was going fine.then he died,and then everything went bad.Every leader that came after that sucked!simple as that.one enforced martial law to control things and did some stuff during his time but couldn’t manage to affect anything in a long run(Mr Ayub).Another one lost an election to a majority and created a havoc just because he wanted to rule as a prime minister,so he divided a big pakistan into two countries(Mr Bhutto).after that,another martial law,and this time the villain!then came the baldie and the queen bee.the cat fights started,without any positives for the country.then came another martial law.Mr Musharraf did pretty well during his time and stabilised the country but again,couldnt leave a long term impact.then came Mr zardari and continued what people before him had done(which is nothing actually).This is me,a young educated pakistani,these are my views.isnt it a shame?just something to think about.

  7. A simple but an effective dictum to confront evil is,”The least a good man can do,when faced with an evil is to do nothing”.

  8. 1. Mr Yusha, well said.
    2. Mr Mohan Das, dear sir, what you mean may be an opinion, but not the teaching of any religion the world over.
    3. Mr Danish, vow! what a wisdom and co-relation.

  9. Mr. Khattak, it is really nice to see you on the blog after a long time.
