Ahmed Ali Butt, the famous actor cum host is of the opinion that the slogan Mera Jism Meri Marzi is a Western campaign that is being mishandled locally. As per his recent Instagram story, Butt talked about the slogan and that how this chant that otherwise goes against the cultural values of Pakistan is being promoted before the upcoming Aurat March.
He said that he has even less sympathy for the ones who exploit the slogan Mera Jism Meri Marzi. He further mentioned in his story that it is a Western campaign which encourages making abortion legal, makes prostitution legal and abolishes the ban on organ sale.
Ahmed Ali Butt further added that it was sad to see how people are following such funded campaigns. He said that when it comes to the rights of women, Islam has awarded the most rights and respect for women. Butt also said that it is sad to see how we have forgotten that and are following trends and funded drives.
As per a recent post on Instagram from the Aurat March account read that the slogan “Mera Jism Meri Marzi” means that women want bodily freedom and independence. They want to be able to have the right to choose in the matters regarding their bodies. The right to wear what they want without the fear of being raped. The right and choice of selecting their life partners. The choice of producing or not having any children at all. The liberty of deciding when they want to have children. To not experience marital rape just because their husbands feel entitled to their bodies after marriage. The right to have access to move freely in their daily lives for work and for fun.
