Designer Maheen Khan is returning her LSA trophies in solidarity with victims of abuse!
Ace designer took to social media to announce her decision on Monday.
The LSAs are no stranger to controversy! But this year Actor Feroze Khan’s nomination amid domestic abuse allegations has left many enraged.
For those unserved, Feroze Khan has also subsequently won — this year’s LSA for Best Actor (Viewer’s Choice).
Obaid Chinoy announced prior to the show that she was returning her lifetime award over his nomination and now its the prominent fashion designer has decided to do the same.
Maheen Khan captioned her Insta post saying, “It is a sad day as I had such hopes for the Lux style Award show to be not just a champion of style but a platform that nurtured justice for women and stood out as a proud beacon of hope for every child and woman who has been violated.“
In an Instagram post, Maheen Khan said:
“In a world where one in three women worldwide experience physical or sexual assault, where rape and domestic abuse remains unaddressed, it is imperative that those who have a voice must use it .
Physical abuse against women and girls is a human rights violation. Today it is someone’s daughter, tommorow it might be yours .
“While so many of us have raised our voices against the deaths of Zainab ,Noor and other’s,
the disregard and insensitivity of a recent award show is a travesty. in all conscience I can no longer associate my self with a event that disregards their plight. I will be returning my Lux style awards in solidarity with those who continue to suffer the infringement of their basic human right to live free from violence .
