‘Shake her hand, she is anything but feminine’, Abdul Razzaq thrashed for sexist remarks against Nida Dar

One of the hosts on the show, Wafa Butt, asked Nida Dar about the women in the Pakistan cricket team and whether they leave cricket once they get married.

 

Recently, the former Pakistan all-rounder, Abdul Razzaq, and the Pakistani cricketer, Nida Dar from the women’s team appeared on a TV show hosted by the famous actor, Nauman Ijaz. A video clip of the conversation during the talk show has been doing the rounds on social media ever since.

Abdul Razzaq made sexist remarks towards the Pakistani woman cricketer, Nida Dar, during the conversation. The comments by the former Pakistani cricketer have sparked a major debate amongst the fans on social media.

The Sexist Remarks

One of the hosts on the show, Wafa Butt, asked Nida Dar about the women in the Pakistan cricket team and whether they leave cricket once they get married. Nida replied saying:

Some of the women cricketers do leave the sport, but most of them continue to play as they have strived to reach the international level throughout their lives.

At this moment, Abdul Razzaq intervened and passed a sexist remark towards Pakistan’s highest T20 wicket-taker. Razzaq jokingly said:

Oh, they don’t get married. Their field is as such. When they become cricketers, they strive to be as equal as their male counterparts, if not better than them. They want to prove that not only men but they can also do it as well. The feeling [to get married] is gone [by the time they excel]. If you shake her [Dar] hand, she is anything but feminine.

Nida Dar replied and said:

The women involved in professional sport have to maintain a certain level of fitness. Therefore, they are involved in many physical activities, such as going to the gym.

The heated conversation concluded with the host asking Dar about her hairstyle and why she does not grow it long, to which she replied: 

I used to keep short hair to play cricket as a child, and so it is comfortable for me like this.

The host Nauman Ijaz backed Nida Dar on her reply.

Abdul Razzaq may have been joking, and the conversation might have been light and fun, but netizens are unwilling to let this slide. The cricketer’s comments have made people call out the sexist comments and take sides.

  • Very paindoo jahil insaan hay ye. 95% of Pakistani men treat their mothers, sister, wives and daughters like animals. Our society badly needs behavioural and psychotherapy.
