Abuse of any kind is not to be tolerated. Its high time now that we stop giving the abusers the benefit of doubt. We need this to stop or else men, who consider themselves superior to their women with a right to abuse them inherited by them by birth will continue to thrash helpless women, shattering not only thier bodies but their souls and their personalities as well.
The Pakistani media industy has this time united against domestic abuse and are calling out actor, singer Mohsin Abbas Haider for subjecting his wife, Fatema Sohail to domestic violence.
Here is what the celebrities are saying;
Anchorperson Rabia Anum stated how people needed to speak in favor of Fatema Sohail.
The media and Showbiz industry Kings, the channel heads , the PR Gurus need to speak up in the favor of this girl @SohailFatema and announce a complete Ban on #MohsinAbbasHaider . #domesticabuse is a CRIME.

I wanted to say that men like these are a threat to the society I don’t see him just as a spineless, pathetic sick human being , I see him as a danger. She needs justice and he needs HELP. #justiceforfatima (3/3)

Mahira Khan also shared her disgust upon the news without naming anyone in particular.
Sick to my stomach. What gives anybody the right to raise their hand on anyone? Nothing. No excuse.
For eons now we have normalised abuse (of all kinds) and for the sake of our children this needs to stop.

Adding how countless women were silenced by monsters like these, singer and actor Asim Azhar added,
I can’t begin to stress enough on this issue. This is just one story. Firstly, thank you Fatema – for getting the courage & coming out with your story for all the girls suffering from the same issue. Countless women are silenced by monsters like these, physically & mentally. 1/2

We, as a society, need to cancel & boycott all these toxic beings. Do not give them any publicity at all in any circumstances. No more proofs needed, no more ‘wait for his side of the story’. Because domestic violence is NOT okay in response of ANY action. #TimesUp 2/2

“You cannot justify abuse,” wrote Osman Khalid Butt.
I've been staring at this screen, grappling with the images I saw, trying to form a coherent sentence.
There is a special place in hell reserved for anyone who would lay so much as a finger on a woman.
You cannot justify abuse.
It is indefensible.
I am sick to my stomach.

Mansha Pasha too shared her stance on the issue,
Before you even think abt hitting your women, JUST DONT.
There is no excuse, no validation, nothing u can offer that in ANY way makes this okay.
We are stronger than we look & we will fight back.
Silence is not, was not & never will be an option.

Haroon Shahid condemned Mohsin Abbas Haider for such a cowardly act.
Growing up I remember, once my father got really upset when he saw my mother crying. Upon inquiring, he found out that one of our neighbor used to beat his wife. He went up to his house the same day and put him in his place. The guy was a wuss. #MohsinAbbasHaider shame on you!
