Waqar Zaka calls for ‘Mard March’ after Shaheen, Imam ul Haq controversy
Pakistani TV host and social media celebrity Waqar Zaka called for a Mard March on Thursday, a couple of days after Imam ul Haq and Shaheen Afridi were involved in a controversy.
The last few days have been controversial for cricketers Imam ul Haq and Shaheen Afridi. A Twitter user leaked screenshots of alleged conversations between Imam and a few women on social media.
Imam was accused of having affairs with multiple women and stringing them along. A day later, screenshots of Shaheen’s picture started doing the rounds on social media in which he was apparently blowing a kiss to someone.
Waqar took to social media and called all the men to hold a Mard March to protest the unfair treatment meted to men.
“I would like to request Imam and Shaheen to take action against these women,” he said. “Report them to the FIA as leaking consensual chats is a crime,” he added.
Waqar then said that women who were using the #MeToo movement for their own advantage were hijacking the plight of the real victims of sexual harassment.
He then called for men to assemble at a place and hold a ‘Mard March’ to highlight the poor treatment that men had to face.
He lashed out at men who sided with women on these issues and did not speak out against them.
“One day you will also be exposed. Then it won’t matter if you side with these women or not,” he said.
