However, trolls still targeted Mansha Pasha for being un-Islamic.

Mansha Pasha, I saw you attended that conference with Osman Khalid ButtandHareem Farooq. To make it clear to you, those who break the laws of Islam which the entire showbiz does will always be judged, discouraged and will never get acceptance ever, a user tweeted.

Pasha promptly responded, I think people who follow and write to us sinners are also sinning. I suggest you secure your afterlife by swiftly unfollowing. God bless.

And, could we get an amen?

The aforementioned session moderated by Manal Faheem Khan shed light on how women in showbiz are treated.

Taking some key points from the session, she wrote, Osman Khalid Butt was called a gender traitor for supporting Meesha Shafi. This lends insight into how matters of sexual harassment become about men vs women instead of victim vs perpetrator. Men in the industry arent encouraged to support women who may have been abused.

Talking about Farooqs statements, she tweeted, Hareem Farooq raised a very valid point. If Mehwish Hayat can be criticised for doing billi when winning the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz, why cant sexual harassers be called out when theyre being nominated for awards?

The actor previously made some peculiar statementsabout how women in the industry should learn how to speak better.

From stole my husband from my best friend and cheated on my fiancee, tojab Me Too hota hai ussi waqt kiyon nahi boltein(When #MeToo happens, people should speak up then), to quotes from Uncle Ben and your friendly neighbourhoodSpider-Man. The women of this industry need to step up and learn to speak better, shesaid earlier.
